When it comes to getting the best quality in your security or monitoring system, the constant forward march of technology is a big deal. Simply put, the right cameras alone are enough to really improve your overall monitoring or security results. And today, HD-SDI CCTV cameras are becoming the new standard where security is concerned or where any other monitoring systems are being installed.
HD-SDI CCTV cameras are High Definition Serial Digital Interface Closed Circuit TV cameras. The closed circuit TV aspect of that is probably already well known – it’s the type of security monitoring that most use, with a single circuit of one or more cameras feeding to one or more monitors and/or a recording device. It’s the HD-SDI part that is really the upgrade here, and worth thinking about.
Basically, HD-SDI CCTV cameras offer you the chance to improve the video quality of your cameras and will deliver much crisper images, which will in turn help with identifying criminals and in improving the overall ease of monitoring your property. One of the best parts about these systems is that in most cases, your existing cables will likely work up to a point. You’ll be investing in new cameras and a DVR system much like the ones that most people have in their living rooms are used to make the recordings. But RG-59 cable or coax will be more than enough to deliver the images in this system. Plus, the DVR box used in these systems will hold hours of footage and will be easier to manage than older, archaic methods of recording.
Compared to the other higher definition system – IP camera – these are often a better option. While IP cameras get a lot of attention, it’s cheaper to make the upgrade to HD-SDI CCTV cameras and the results are often the same. The fact is that the main reason HD-SDI CCTV cameras aren’t getting as much attention is because they’re still fairly new. But those who have made the switch to them are more than happy with the results.
If you’re tired of grainy images that are hard to see and don’t really seem to be doing much for you or your property, an upgrade may be in order. And by investing in the cameras and the DVR system involved in HD-SDI you can give yourself a relatively inexpensive upgrade that will deliver very real results.
