When I control an IP PTZ camera or view video over my network, why do I have a 2 second latent response

Issue

When viewing video from IP cameras and controlling PTZ (Pan, Tilt, and Zoom) functions, there is a 2 second delay.

Product Line

Pelco Cameras

Environment

Analog Cameras connected to encoders
IP cameras – Fixed and PTZ
Network Video Surveillance Systems

Cause

As an IP device, an IP camera will have an effect on the bandwidth of a network - the challenge for many users is to try to reduce this effect to a minimum. Given an understanding of the requirements of the video surveillance traffic, there is always a latent experience when viewing video and controlling IP PTZ cameras.

Resolution

Intelligently design the network infrastructure to minimize latent data traffic to a minimal experience.
