HD Surveillance Camera Options
HD Digital CCTV Cameras and HD/megapixel technology provides higher resolution of video images than analog CCTV, i.e. the ability to see more details or have a wider coverage – a key consideration in video surveillance applications. With a HDTV or megapixel camera, the resolution is at least eight times better than an analog CCTV camera.
Combining HDTV/megapixel cameras or HD Digital CCTV Cameras with a selection of non-megapixel cameras that are optimized for other needs (such as powerful optical zoom, extreme light sensitivity or low cost) creates video surveillance installations that are effective, reliable and cost-efficient.
Indoor & Outdoor HD Surveillance Cameras
HDTV and HD digital CCTV cameras have an important role to play in video surveillance applications. HD surveillance cameras can provide images that are more useful, with more image detail and with wider coverage than standard resolution cameras. Depending on your requirements, EX-SDI UHD digital CCTV cameras can bring the advantages of HDTV megapixel technology to your surveillance application.
The variation of requirements within video surveillance is enormous. However, it can be boiled down to a choice between two different priorities:
In this case, the aim is to obtain a general overview of a scene. In a shopping mall, for instance, your primary goal of a HD surveillance camera installation may be to watch for the presence of people and view their movements - not the identification of individuals. Or you may want to see whether a parking lot is full or has empty spaces, rather than identify individual cars or read license plates.
For overview applications, sufficient resolution and coverage of a scene may be achieved with a single HDTV/megapixel HD surveillance camera or a number of non-megapixel cameras.

These are the demanding situations where you need to be able to identify persons or objects in a scene. This could be point-of-sales monitoring where it is necessary to clearly see every item a customer is purchasing, or situations where you need to be able to identify a face. High detail images can be achieved by installing a HD digital CCTV camera with a telescopic lens or a lens with zoom capability to enable a closer view of the area of interest, or by placing the camera close to the area to be monitored.
Using a HDTV or HD digital CCTV cameras in all such cases will provide even higher resolution images with more details than a non-megapixel camera, and significantly more resolution than a standard "analog" CCTV camera.
Statistics suggest that a property with a security alarm system is less likely to be burgled than a property without an alarm system and if you have a monitored alarm system, you should be entitled to a discount on your contents insurance.
