What is the Difference Between a CCTV Camera and an IP Camera?

 The difference between a CCTV camera and an IP camera is quite distinct. IP cameras work with an ethernet cable and they transmit a digital signal. They are networked usually within a LAN (Local Area Network) and send a signal to an NVR (Network Video Recorder) on a remote or local network.
