Switching from an analog-based CCTV system to a megapixel camera system used to be a major hassle. Up until a few years ago, the only way to get true HD video was to install an IP-based system. If you had an existing coax based system installed and you wanted HD video quality, that meant ripping out existing coax and replacing it with Cat5 cable.
Unfortunately, installing an IP-based CCTV system is not the same as installing an analog system. There is a steep learning curve, and there are many new components to add. It is not just cable + cameras + DVR. IP installers now need to consider PoE Injectors, NVRs, VMS platforms, Servers, Bandwidth Throttling, Onvif Compliancy, Routers, Hubs, Switches, and the list goes on.
What if you didn’t have to use IP to get HD quality video? What if you could keep your existing coax? What if installing an HD system was easy as installing an analog system?
Does this sound to good to be true? Well, it’s not, and the answer to an easy analog to HD upgrade is HD Over Coax CCTV.
Installing HD over Coax technology is very similar to installing Analog CCTV. Simply replace the cameras and DVR and in most cases you can reuse the existing coax.
But you know what is remarkable? The virtually unlimited & increased sales potential that an HD over Coax upgrade play can have for your business. Think about it, how many existing coax based systems are out there? The answer: hundreds of thousands!
In the video below, we hear from a local scuba shop owner who recently upgraded from an Analog based system to an HD over Coax based CCTV system.
The results may surprise you.
What if you were to approach those old analog/coax based installs with an easy upgrade to HD at a fraction of the cost of a brand new installation? With no new wire to pull you can greatly speed up your installation time and give your customers the latest in HD video quality for a fraction of the cost of an IP-based system.
