Why Choose HD-SDI/EX-SDI?

Best In Class Image Quality:
Both HD-SDI & EX-SDI offer best in class image quality. They are pure digital signal formats, and there is no degradation of the video image over distance.

Conversely, analog modulation technology (HD-TVI & HD-CVI) suffers when the signal transmits over long distances. The result is poor video quality, artifacts, and video noise.

EX-SDI: Since EX-SDI is an all-digital format, it is less susceptible to external video noise commonly caused by electrical devices, lighting, ground loops, and compromised cable integrity.

HD-TVI: Like all analog modulation HD Over Coax technologies, there is an increased sensitivity to external video noise. The image above exhibits banding lines when external noise is present.

EX-SDI provides a sharp and clear picture at any distance. Take a look at the image above and compare with the HD-TVI image below. Notice that there is no image degradation with EX-SDI HD Over Coax technology.

HD-TVI: Take a look at the image above and you will notice blurred lines, pseudo edges, and an overall degradation in image quality. With analog modulation technology (HD-TVI & HD-CVI), the longer the cable distance, the lower the quality of the image.

Easy to Install:
HD-SDI/EX-SDI installs just like an analog coax based system. Simply connect the BNC cable and done. HD video with the ease of analog CCTV!

Unlike IP, no extra training is required, no complicated networks to setup and no bandwidth issues. All analog installers already know the fundamentals of installing coax-based systems.

Keep Your Coax:
Before HD over Coax, the only way to obtain HD video was with an IP camera requiring a new run of Cat5 cable. In most cases HD-SDI/EX-SDI can reuse the existing RG59 coax, eliminating the need to run new cable if an existing analog system is in place.

Upgrade Potential:

Do you know what is remarkable? The virtually unlimited & increased sales potential that an HD-SDI/EX-SDI upgrade play can have for your business. Think about it, how many existing coax based systems are out there? The answer: hundreds of thousands!

What if you were to approach old analog/coax based installs with an easy upgrade to HD at a fraction of the cost of a brand new installation?

Upgrade your Image:
Look at the images below: both images were taken from the same scene, but one is clearly better than the other. The top image is from the previously installed D1 resolution system (720 x 480). The bottom image is from an actual HD-SDI installation using the CE-D2HD (1920 x 1080).

Why Clinton Chose HD-SDI/EX-SDI?
The answer is simple: image quality. We believe that the surveillance industry should constantly be striving for better image quality. After all, think about what purpose security cameras serve. Why not choose the best in class image quality when it comes to one’s personal safety and security.

There may be lower priced HD over Coax solutions out there, but what sacrifices were made to obtain that lower price point? Take a closer look, and you will see why you truly get what you pay for when it comes to quality.

  1. Good to hear that HD-SDI is still alive. I hope that EX HD-SDI goes strong and that it can compete with analoque HD cctv. SDI is a great system.
