Deciding between standard and HD video resolution

Nov. 12, 2013
As the IP migration continues, one of the pressing questions is whether to upgrade to HD video cameras. This whitepaper provides a comparative analysis between standard and high-definition video solutions to help users make a better informed decision.

The video surveillance industry is in full swing on changing over from traditional analog video systems to IP video systems. Once the decision is made to change to IP video, another decision point that is quickly apparent is whether to continue to use standard definition (SD) or high-definition (HD) video cameras. The benefits of using HD and megapixel cameras over SD cameras in video surveillance applications has been a subject of debate, as the perceived price premium of the HD/megapixel cameras cancelled out the benefits. This white paper demonstrates these benefits to assist you in making an educated decision on this choice.
