Not all HD Over Coax technologies are created equal!

Meet the Digital Technology that is changing the HD Over Coax market for the better.

What is EX-SDI?

Keep Your Coax

HD Over Coax now represents a cost-effective solution for transmitting HD video without the complexity of IP. EX-SDI can reuse existing RG59 coax, eliminating the need to run new cable if an existing analog system is in place. Unlike IP, there is no extra training required, no complex networks to set up, and no bandwidth issues. All analog installers already know the fundamentals of installing a coax-based system. Get the same high-resolution benefit of an IP megapixel system but without the headache.

100% Digital Signal

Unlike HD Analog technology (HD-TVI, HD-CVI, and AHD), EX-SDI is a 100% digital signal, making it less susceptible to noise, interference, and image degradation over distance.

Long Distance

With its built-in Visually Lossless Codec (VLC) and lower data rate, EX-SDI 2.0 technology can transmit full HD 1080p video at a 75% greater distance than EX-SDI. With EX-SDI 2.0, maximum transmission distances of 1,400 feet using standard RG59 coax are now possible!

Multiple Coax Outputs

In addition to an EX-SDI/HD-SDI digital BNC output, EX-SDI cameras also come equipped with an analog BNC output – ideal for use with analog test monitors or existing analog DVRs. New for 2020, select 2MP & 4MP EX-SDI cameras now feature a selectable HD Analog output for additional system flexibility.

Up the Coax Control

Up the Coax Control (UCC) allows the installer to make camera OSD menu changes remotely through the DVR via the UCC equipped DVR channel. UCC technology reduces site visits and extra trips up the ladder, making service calls a breeze!

Why Choose EX-SDI?

Image Quality

EX-SDI offers best-in-class image quality at distance when compared to HD Analog (HD-TVI, HD-CVI, and AHD).

Digital Signal

EX-SDI is a 100% digital signal, making it less susceptible to noise, interference, and degradation over distance.

Long Distance

EX-SDI uses a Visually Lossless Codec (VLC) to compress the digital video signal for greater transmission distance.


EX-SDI is fully compatible with HD-SDI and select cameras can also output HD Analog for added flexibility.
