Do you have an aging video surveillance system that just doesn’t cut it any more? There may be economical answers for you.
If you want to protect your assets and keep your employees safe while deterring crime, video surveillance is essential. However, in the past, the high cost of surveillance systems often factored into the decision to either delay or cut corners on the investment. The recent growth in criminal activities has made it necessary for people to take security matters much more seriously.
Today’s HD-TVI solutions offer megapixel resolution at a fraction of the cost of a comparable megapixel IP solution.
So, what is HD-TVI?
HD-TVI stands for High Definition Transport Video Interface. It is a digital signal processing and transport technology for video used in HD security cameras and DVRs. Because HD-TVI security solutions do not require a complicated, expensive network infrastructure, they provide a much more cost-effective megapixel resolution security solution than a comparable IP security solution. HD-TVI is compatible with existing CCTV cameras and existing coaxial cables. HD Analog enables you to use existing equipment, with the ability to transition to HD, when your surveillance needs and budget allows.
High-definition (HD) images provide forensic detail and zoom capabilities for facial recognition and license plate identification. HD-TVI is a format of HD Analog technology. HD-TVI delivers high-resolution video at a fraction of the price of IP, and is as simple to install and operate as traditional analog CCTV solutions.
No IP-networking required!
What about low light environments?
Most low light cameras use IR cut filters, which allow the cameras to operate both night and day. If you want to have a clear image for your low light cameras, distance is a large factor to consider. If you have your camera monitoring a 100 yard space in its widest setting you will probably not get a good facial image unless the criminal is standing twenty yards away from your camera, and maybe not even then. Of course, this also depends on the environment the camera is placed in.
Just like other types of security cameras, TVI cameras support a variety of fixed and varifocal lens options. A varifocal lens allows the installer to adjust the angle of view / zoom level of the lens. A fixed lens has a single setting that is “fixed” and pre-focused.
Besides traditional box camera styles, there are a wide selection of camera types including Bullet, Dome and Turret. This affords the opportunity to tailor the solution to the requirements of each specific situation.
