HD Analog is already a preferred security solution for Retail Applications of all sizes, as HD technology is extremely well suited to address the unique needs and constraints shared by many retailers.
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: shoplifting, fraudulent transactions, vandalism, false claims, such as "slip & falls", inventory shrink, employee theft.
These challenges are not unique to large corporations; they are shared by businesses of every size with a physical location, including:

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.

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:
