2# Benefits of high definition

First, compared with standard definition, high definition increased the size of image, additionally improved the image quality through many different image enhance technologies such as progressive scanning, 2D/3D dynamic noise reduction, WDR, etc. In a nutshell, high definition offers superior image quality. A conventional 960H analog camera providing 960H/WD1 resolution offers a resolution of 960x480 pixels (NTSC) or 960x576 pixels (PAL) after the signal has been digitized in a DVR or a video server, which corresponds to a maximum of 552,960 pixels.

A high definition camera can monitor a much wider area than conventional security camera. For example, a 12 megapixel panoramic camera comes with a fisheye lens to provide 360 degree panoramic view angle video monitoring. Through integrated with 12 megapixel image sensor and ePTZ (virtual pan/tilt/zoom), as well as split views, it can replace several conventional security cameras, greatly reduce the installation cost and maintenance fee.
