HD Analog for Business Security

HD Analog is quickly becoming the preferred security technology of choice for business applications of every size and location. Why? HD Analog is extremely well-suited to solve security challenges and constraints faced by many business owners.

  • HD Analog delivers the high-definition megapixel resolution video required for recognition of faces, license plates, and other details.
  • HD Analog doesn’t require an established network, and can be installed and managed independently.
  • HD Analog is very simple to install and maintain.
  • HD Analog is an extremely cost-effective alternative to higher-priced IP megapixel solutions - offering comparable resolution.
  • HD Analog is 100% compatible with pre-existing coaxial cabling and analog cameras, allowing retailers to add HD capabilities without having to replace their entire system.

Problems Solved with HD Analog

Most importantly, HD Analog captures high-definition, megapixel resolution images – and allows business owners and managers to zoom in on live or recorded video to see a greater level of detail.

This capability is required to address the unique security challenges faced by business owners, including: Vandalism, property damage, false claims, such as "slip & falls", inventory shrinkage, employee theft, theft of equipment and tools, threats to IT network infrastructure, and equipment rooms, theft of proprietary company information, financial records and other sensitive information.

Verticals Served by HD Analog

These challenges are not unique to large corporations; they are shared by businesses of every size with a physical location, including:

Verticals Served by HD Analog
  • Single-location small businesses
  • Large, multi-site, multi-campus enterprises
  • Retail stores and convenience stores
  • Startups
  • Financial institutions
  • Manufacturing facilities
  • Tech companies

Benefits of HD Analog Technology

When compared to traditional Analog or IP technologies, HD Analog offers significant and measurable advantages. In fact, HD Analog is commonly marketed as “the best of both worlds” – offering megapixel resolution images, but the simplicity and cost of Analog.

Key benefits of HD Analog technology include:

Benefits of HD Analog Technology for Business Applications

  • Capture clearer and more detailed live video of employees, visitors and their activities, with a greater level of resolution.
  • Enhanced image clarity provides the detail necessary for identification of individuals and the submission of court‑admissible evidence.
  • Capture HD video evidence for use against false claims and liabilities.

Advantages of HD vs. Analog for Business Applications

HD Analog technology delivers the simplicity and affordability of traditional analog solutions, while addressing many of the limitations associated with Analog technologies.

For example, Analog CCTV cameras offer limited resolution (up to 960H, or 960 x 480 pixels) and provide insufficient resolution for applications requiring greater levels of detail, such as facial recognition or license plate identification.

Advantages of HD vs. IP for Business Applications

HD Analog systems do not require the networking equipment and knowledge associated with installing and maintaining traditional IP solutions. And because HD Analog lives off the network, they don’t interfere with other network-related activities, or consume valuable network bandwidth required by other devices.

There are no licensing or recurring fees associated with HD Analog solutions, and all channels come completely enabled – for the life of your product. Comparable IP solutions commonly require the purchase of a license for every channel used, and a recurring annual fee to maintain that license.

Other challenges associated with IP solutions include:

  • Require a complex network infrastructure
  • Offer limited transmission distance
  • Commonly experience video latency
  • Require considerable network bandwidth
  • Can be extremely costly compared to traditional analog and comparable Analog HD systems

Common Placements for HD Cameras in a Business Setting

HD analog security cameras are ideal for monitoring high-traffic areas – capturing the resolution required to identify faces, license plates, and other details critical to investigating a potential crime. “High risk” areas where incidences commonly occur include: lobbies and reception areas, stockrooms, warehouses, IT server and equipment rooms, record rooms, and parking lots.

HD Analog cameras placed around the exterior of your business, provides another layer of protection and can help deter vandalism, property damage and false accident and liability claims.
