Anything up to the first quarter of this year that was offering a viable HD CCTV solution has been synonymous with IP network systems. Now though, HD SDI CCTV is capturing the imagination of CCTV installers. Samsung are at the forefront of the new HD SDI revolution and technology built into Samsung’s new HD-SDI cameras and HD SDI DVR allows installers the option of real time Full HD images over coax cabling.
HD-SDI CCTV installed over coax means there is no loss of image data and zero latency when live images are viewed. The new SCB-6000 HD SDI camera and SCD-6080 internal dome are therefore perfect for retail environments, especially where existing coax exists and the cost of using the network is prohibitive.
The Samsung HD-SDI four-channel SRD-480D DVR has also come onto the market this quarter. Samsung appreciate that there are viable options to IP HD and have released the new HD SDI CCTV range in order to offer a full HD CCTV solution and compete across all 3 disciplines. Real time images at 720p resolution across all channels can be achieved.
For HD SDI CCTV to work, no licence is required and existing coaxial cable runs of up to 100m can be used. If the distance required is over the 100m mark then distance can be extended when Samsung introduce in the near future the SPH-120R Repeater.
Samsung have made their HD SDI range compatible with Samsung’s licence-free Net-i Viewer software. This means IP analogue and now HD SDI CCTV can all be controlled from the same remote software platform giving installers plenty of choice when upgrading existing multiple site installations.
The SCB-6000 HD SDI camera and SCD-6080 can deliver up to 5 times the resolution of a traditional analogue camera. Both cameras are fitted with noise reduction technology and can deliver 25 frames per second real time images and both are true day/night with super dynamic features built in.
The Samsung HD-SDI CCTV range is supplied with full support services from Samsung Techwin Europe.
