AHD means “analog high definition”. It's the transitional product between Analog Era to Digital Era. Currently, it supports 720P HD resolution and AHD It is a new standard for CCTV Cameras and DVRs.
What type of cable do AHD cameras use?
AHD CCTV cameras are connected to DVRs using the same type of coaxial cable as traditional analog CCTV cameras , typically RG59 or RG6 coax cable. One of the advantages of AHD over HD-SDI cameras (another HD over coax security camera standard), is that RG59 coax cable can be run long distances without video loss. So far in our experience, installers can reliably use RG69 coax cable up to a max distance of 800 feet for AHD cameras. AHD cameras can also use UTP cable with video baluns to run cable up to 320 Meters / 960 feet with CAT5 cable.
Will AHD replace analog CCTV cameras?
Time will tell.
CCTV technology is extremely stable and prices are very affordable.
