The Advantages of TVI and IP (1)

Gradually, we stopped carrying HD-SDI about a year and half ago , middle of 2013. and now most major manufacturers are abandoning the technology due to the high cost of production and turning instead to less expensive alternatives like TVI that offer better technology at a lower cost. This means that if you do buy an HD-SDI system, you may not be able to add a camera later or replace a broken one.
As we all know, HD-SDI, TVI, CVI, AHD and IP are five competing standards for HD video recording.?While more and more devices are becoming networked as the world transitions to "the network of things" and industries like home-automation take off. Only with IP cameras and NVR will all your networked systems will be able to talk with each other, and as 4K TVs take off and the price of higher than 1080P cameras decreases, 1080P will no longer be considered a "good enough" system. Nearly all innovation in the industry has been and will continue to be "IP first."
IP cameras have come down significantly in price from where they once were in 2010, deliver a better image quality than HD-SDI, and provide a easier to manage solution that can communicate with other digital devices such as alarms, POS, and access control units.
