Options for HD Analog Technology

Commonly referred to as: HD-TVI, HD TVI, TVI, TVI HD

High-Definition Transport Video (HD-TVI) is the latest HD Analog technology introduced. HD-TVI solutions are capable of transmitting zero latency 720p or 1080p HD video over standard coaxial cabling up to 1600’. HD-TVI “tri-brid” recorders are compatible with all analog, all HD-TVI cameras, and supported IP cameras, on any channel and in any configuration.

HD-TVI offers comparable resolution to other HD CCTV formats, a high quality image, is capable of longer transmissions, and is the most flexible option for camera compatibility, hybrid capabilities, and overall configurability.

  • What You Need to Know:HD-TVI offers the best overall performance (resolution, image quality and transmission distance) with the fewest limitations and best overall flexibility – when compared to alternative HD technology formats.
