Field of view

It is an angle of view of the camera expressed in degrees, depending on the lens and camera type and the focal length of the lens. For lenses used in CCTV cameras, the field of view is horizontal.

Focal length

Focal length is a distance between an optical focus of an optical system and a cardinal point of the optical system in millimeters and is defined as the lens system ability to focus light. The smaller the focal length, the more the light beams are focused by the optical system.

IK rating

IK rating is a classification for the degrees of protection provided by enclosures for electrical equipment against external mechanical impacts. The higher the IK code, the higher the mechanical strength. The IK rating is an 11-code scale (‘00’ to ‘10’).

Image resolution - graphical presentation

Mpx (MP, Mpix) is an abbreviation of Megapixel. It is a unit describing in millions the number of elementary points of the CCD matrix. The higher the number means the higher image resolution. See a graphical comparison of different image sizes.

Image sensor

An image sensor is a photosensitive element converting the image into an electric signal. It uses a photoelectric effect by converting a stream of photons into electric impulses. It is one of the key components of any camera or any device designed for taking photos or recording video sequences.

IP rating

IP rating also referred to as the degree of protection defines the resistance to external conditions. The first digit denotes a resistance to solid and dust ingress, the second digit denotes a resistance to water ingress.

IP v4/v6 protocols
Due to a growing shortage of IPv4 addresses, a successor to IPv4, known as IPv6 has been developed. A switch between IPv4 and IPv6 is unnoticeable for an average user. The key to IPv6 enhancement is the expansion of the IP address space from 32 bits to 128 bits. See more...
Iris diaphragm

Iris diaphragm is part of a lens controlling the amount of light reaching the image sensor. It controls the relative aperture of the lens to reduce or increase the amount of light in lenses with adjustable iris (manual iris, auto iris) or is fixed.
