What is a "Network" or "IP" camera?

A network camera,

also known as an IP camera, is a true digital camera. This camera uses the same CCD or CMOS pickup element as a CCTV camera and maybe the same DSP. The similarity stops here. The signal from the pickup element is digitized, packetized and output as a data stream of digital packets following the Internet Protocol (IP) standard.

The main output from a network camera will always be a stream of digital packets conforming with IP standards.
