HD-SDI was developed years ago by the television, studio and video production industries. They invested heavily in this technology and are continually refining, tweaking and expanding the technology and standards. This is what the big boys use when they need to deliver live video from the football stadium out to the production trucks in the parking lot. It is stable, high definition video that works really well over standard coaxial cable.

(SDI) is a family of digital video interfaces first standardized by SMPTE (The Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers) in 1989. For example, ITU-RBT.656 and SMPTE 259M define digital video interfaces used for broadcast-grade video. A related standard, known as high-definition serial digital interface (HD-SDI), is standardized in SMPTE 292M; this provides a nominal data rate of 1.485 Gbit/s.

Coaxial variants of the specification range in length but are typically less than 300 meters. Fiber optic variants of the specification such as 297M allow for long-distance transmission limited only by maximum fiber length and/or repeaters. SDI and HD-SDI were usually only available in professional video equipment. In the past, the only way to accomplish Megapixel High Definition Security Camera Video was with IP Cameras and equipment. That meant that you had to know an awful lot about Netwokring, Routers, Switches and probably even POE (Power Over Ethernet) equipment.

Now, with the advent of HD-SDI Technology, you can have 2 & 3 Megapixel Cameras and connect them as easily as any analog system. The reason it’s so easy, is that HD-SDI achieves it’s 1080p video over coax. Yes, over ordinary coax cable.

We currently offer four different HD Cameras (The Fortress HD, IR120 Magnum-HD, Vanguard-HD and the Sentry HD) and a Megapixel DVR. All of the Cameras, with the exception of the IR120 Magnum-HD, come with a 3 YEAR WARRANTY ! Achievable with our Megapixel DVR, which also carries a 3 year warranty.
