We aim to provide Business Security Video Surveillance solutions at a reasonable price. To save money consider the following:
A large cost component of a Security Video installation is in the running of the necessary cable from the central control point to the cameras. To keep costs to a minimum we suggest using staff or friends to run this cable and we would supply the necessary supplies to do this. Our part of the installation would be the hookup of the cameras and programming the DVR or NVR for local and remote monitoring.
However, we are happy to do a complete turnkey installation if required.
There are a few types of technology that connect cameras to the local storage DVR or NVR and we tend towards 2 of them.
An Internet Protocol camera, or IP camera, is a type of digital video camera commonly employed for surveillance, and which, unlike analog closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras, can send and receive data via a computer network and the Internet. These can be directly accessed over a network connection.
HD-CVI stands for High Definition Composite Video Interface. This is new technology in the security camera industry providing a different method of transmitting video signals over coaxial cables. Until this new technology surfaced, analog CCTV video was limited to 960h video resolution. 960h resolution refers to the 30% increase in horizontal resolution, so the maximum analog resolution up to this point was 960 x 480 pixels. This has been the accepted limit to analog video transmission for many years. In order to achieve greater transmission would mean switching to digital video using either HD-SDI (High Definition Serial Digital Interface) or Network IP video formats.
Enter HD-CVI, a true alternative to Network IP solutions. HD-CVI uses a licensed video transmitter and receiver that is able to transmit up to 1080p video resolution (1920 x 1080) in an uncompressed format over the same standard coaxial cable that is used for standard CCTV cameras. This uncompressed video format is able to transmit over longer distances than either HD-SDI or Network IP cameras and without the latency and bandwidth issues that are so common. Additionally, HD-CVI is able to transmit video, audio and control (OSD or PTZ) over a single coaxial cable instead of requiring separate cables for each transmission.
What is really separating this technology from the rest of the options for video transmission is the cost effectiveness of HD-CVI. In most cases HD-CVI is around the same price as the older analog CCTV technology and is less expensive than HD-SDI or IP Network transmission.
Another benefit of the new HD-CVI technology is that upgrades to HD-CVI can be acomplished with just Camera and DVR replacements as the existing analog cable is sufficient in most cases.
