Reasons to Consider Making the Jump to HD Camera Surveillance

By Jon Benowitz on January 7, 2014 in HD Camera Surveillance, Surveillance Cameras

As a business owner, you have a lot at stake that needs to be protected.  There are multiple things that need to be taken into consideration in order to ensure that you are doing everything within your power to properly protect your premises.  One thing that should be considered for all business owners, particularly those that have large places of business, and require the utmost attention paid to small details, is upgrading to high definition video surveillance.  High definition video surveillance provides a number of different benefits.

One reason that many business owners choose to move away from the upgrade to HD, is because they believe it to be more expensive than it actually is.  If you have a look at our products, you will find many reasonably priced HD systems, which can be installed at an affordable rate.  If you are considering an upgrade to “HD video surveillance equipment”, but are not sure how an upgrade will help you, consider the following;

Cheaper Than You Think

Many business owners seem to think that upgrading to HD video is going to be a huge expense for their business.  This could not be farther from the truth.  It is relatively easy to make a transition from standard video, to HD video, particularly if you are willing to pay for installation service.

An experienced HD video professional can help you to set up a system that not only adequately protects your business, but will do so for cheaper than you might expect.  The difference in quality is well worth it, and you may be able to cut down on the number of cameras in your location, because of larger resolution sizes, pixel amounts, and a wider aspect ratio.

HD Video vs. CCTV Video

Whether you know it or not, there is a huge difference for businesses between HD video surveillance equipment and CCTV videos surveillance equipment.  To start, HD surveillance has a much wider aspect ratio, a higher megapixel resolution, delivering a higher-quality, and a much wider amount of space behind by a single camera.

●      An image captured by a 720 P HD digital camera displays a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels.

●      An image captured by a 1080 P digital camera delivers a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels per image.

●      HD videos with 1080 P resolution are also able to element for frame rate, which is your typical the frame rate of 30 frames per second.  This delivers crystal-clear HD resolution, allowing you to catch even the smallest of details with your cameras.

●      The widescreen aspect ratio of 16:9 also provides a number of benefits as well.  It covers a wider field of view than a non-HD camera.

●      With IP Video you will find that you are able to access the videos and HD footage remotely from a laptop, or other device.  This video can be accessed anywhere with an Internet connection.

Full Frame Rate

The full frame rate makes all of the difference when you are watching for theft on digital cameras.  If something were to have happened, and you had to go back and take a look at the video, you’d want the video to be as clear as could possibly be.  A full frame rate ensures that all of the action is captured, and that there is no doubt about what is seen on the camera.  Lower quality cameras can skip frames, making it more difficult to make out what is going on, or even leaving important details out.  The full frame rate is one of the biggest reasons why many businesses choose to go with an upgrade to HD cameras in the long-term.

Widescreen Aspect Ratio

Imagine being able to see your entire warehouse with just two or three cameras.  The difference between HD cameras in your typical CCTV cameras is the fact that HD can cut the number of cameras that you are currently using in half.  This also cuts down on the amount of wiring, and ultimately the amount of storage space needed.  Although HD videos are quite a bit larger in terms of overall data size, you also have to take into consideration that having more cameras is going to fill up space quickly as well.

Remote Access

Although the technology is possible with standard definition surveillance equipment, remote access has to be a serious consideration for business owners.  Even more important with HD cameras, since many of them are able to be adjusted through remote access, and business owners have more of a reason to look around since they are able to see larger portions of their business.  Remote access is something used by a large portion of businesses that utilize surveillance equipment area whether you are storing your video on an on-site or off-site location, remote access provides another level of security, allowing you to watch the location from the comfort of your own home.
