Megapixel cameras in the surveillance industry are characterized by high definition imaging based on the density of pixels in the sensor. A 1 megapixel camera has 1 million pixels. As an IP surveillance technology, the advantages of megapixel cameras include image quality, the ability to segment images and zoom on portions of the field of view as well as cover wider fields of view that would otherwise need a greater number of cameras.
