In the following brief paragraphs we would like to introduce the two fundamentally different types of Wireless CCTV System Solutions. Taking a minute to understand the implications is imperative, as it may greatly reduce your time spent on further search and even more importantly - prevent you from finding yourself in the very common scenario of having purchased the wrong solution. There are currently only a 'hand full' of companies in the UK, who have the expertise and experience to advise in this matter - not only are we one of them, but we are further willing to provide insight here - free of charge and in laymen terminology.
3G Wireless CCTV (Mobile Phone Type Broadband)
This type of CCTV System has a number of advantages and disadvantages. What really determines whether this is the right choice for you is your application scenario.

RF Radio Frequency Directional Wireless CCTV
Traditional RF Wireless CCTV ids fundamentally different from 3G. This system utilises traditional analogue radio frequency technology to transmit analogue signals. Therefore it is not possible to directly transmit IP Video Streams, without the use of expensive interfaces, adaptors and converters - which would render such a solution too cost ineffective for most clients. This leads us to the logical conclusion that only analogue cameras are compatible with RF Wireless CCTV Transmission.
There are many applications that are ideal for this solution - such as lambing, foaling and calving CCTV. The greatest disadvantage of analogue CCTV Cameras is their inability to produce High Definition Video - instead the best resolution produced is similar to that of DVD Movies. The situation has lead to the matching of a highly compatible and suitable pair: RF Wireless Transmission with PTZ (Pan, Tilt and Zoom) Analogue Cameras.

This solution side-steps the previously mentioned resolution disadvantage by utilising a fully functional Pan Tilt and especially Zoom Dome Camera head. If a sharper image and more detail are required in a part of the current video view, it is possible to zoom in on the object of interest and focus the DVD (roughly - used for ease of understanding) resolution on a small and distant point. It is typically possible to identify registration plates several hundred yards away, so one camera of this type installed in a large stable will give immense detail of monitored animals.
