Traditional Analog CCTV
Analog CCTV systems have been the standard benchmark of camera systems for years until the recent introduction of IP and HD cctv cameras. It is still the most widely used type of camera system and is now more affordable than ever before due to newer technologies in the market pushing prices down.
For most residential and small business applications, analog CCTV is adequate and performs reliably. In the past analog CCTV cameras were typically 420-500TVL (television lines) which is the resolution of the camera , and defines the clarity of the picture and recordings. Recently, to keep analog CCTV in the market with newer IP and HD cctv systems, Higher resolutions of 600TVL, 700TVL(D1) and 960H are now available.
These new specifications give decent detail to recordings for identifying criminal activity for most situations. If high clarity is required, such as the number plate recognition etc, then IP or HD cctv would be the preferred system. However for a lot of installations analog CCTV suits the customers needs and budget.
Alarmtech Security has several system packages available, and all our systems use High resolution cameras and record in D1 resolution for playback. Any less and you may have recorded video that is useless as the clarity isnt good enough to identify criminals.
Any cheap 'ebay' style systems usually only have 420TVL cameras and cant record all channels in 'D1' resolution at a decent frame rate. We have installed and setup these systems supplied by customers and the end result was disapointing and the night time picture quality was useless. Many also use 'non AV' type harddrives which arent designed for constant recording that DVR's require, and fail early.Think twice before purchsing such a system and invest in a quality CCTV system.
Our technicians can advise which system is best for you.
