The way most analog cameras measure resolution by counting the number of horizontal lines. The more lines visible, the higher the resolution of the camera, which means your surveillance footage will have better resolution.
HD analog technology uses your existing analog system components to record pixels instead of horizontal lines, giving you footage in 720p or 1080p HD resolution. 1080p has four times the resolution of standard analog, meaning your images are as sharp as can be. Why would you need that? Well, if you want to zoom in on any of your footage in the case of a crime, you will be able to zoom in on objects like faces and license plates.
HD analog surveillance camera systems generally cost less than HD IP, are simple to install and integrate easily into your existed system. There are several camera styles available, too, from bullet and door cameras to indoor and outdoor cameras.
You can use your existing system’s standard coaxial cables but will need an HD DVR (Digital Video Recorder). A DVR is part of your security system that records and stores the footage from your surveillance cameras. We work with some of the most reliable brands in surveillance camera systems, IC Realtime and Luma.
IC Realtime’s Tribid series recorders combine the best of analog and IP, allowing you to add new IP cameras to your existing analog surveillance camera system. The Tribid series is capable of recording analog cameras, HDVAS cameras and IP cameras. Luma’s HD-TVI support, up to 2TB of internal storage, and live streaming, lets you monitor your Westchester County-area home easily from your smart device using an app.
