All our new cameras use digital technology ensuring a vastly superior image over older analog cameras. However, if you wish to utilise your existing analog cameras, they will be compatible with our new recorders (DVRs).
Resolution of Cameras explained
As with all technology CCTV cameras are advancing at a fast rate. The days of CCTV images being blurry and it being hard to determine if a image contains a person are fast disappearing. To help you choose the correct camera for your application we have added the image below to show the difference in camera resolutions (image quality).
The first Picture is a standard Analog image, which CCTV has been using for a long time, as can be seen the number plate can not be recognised, even the badge on the car is hard to make out.
The second image is analog HD, the number plate can be recognised but the people are hard to perceive.
The third picture is TVI full HD, the car make and number plate are easily recognised and the people in the car can be easily described.
We strongly recommend that if you are choosing a CCTV system, the best option is TVI full HD, the ability to zoom in the image is also drastically improved.
The camera may have a fixed lens which is ideal for monitoring large areas or fitted with a varifocal lens for monitoring door ways, tills or cars etc. They contain the latest in infra-red technology which enables them to view up to 30 metres at night.
The cameras are fitted with a high resolution sensor giving a high definition quality image.
