Analogue 960H CCTV systems

Analogue CCTV has been about for many years and this has numerous benefits… there are lots of manufacturers out there, so there is lots of equipment to choose from – lots of manufacturers means that prices are also very competitive. Having been around for a long time also means that CCTV equipment is now a very much a tried and tested field and reliability is excellent. And yes, whilst not matching the newer HD-SDI CCTV & IP CCTV equipment in a few areas, an Analogue CCTV installation is currently, and will be for a good few years to come, an excellent choice for many customers.

1080P HD-SDI

HD-SDI stands for ‘HD Serial Digital Interface’ and was originally developed for the HDTV market. It is currently the most efficient way to deliver HD quality CCTV images without any loss.

HD-SDI CCTV is not only an excellent choice for new systems but because it can utilise existing coaxial cable found in more traditional analogue CCTV systems, it is perfect to use as a way to upgrade old systems either completely or gradually (with a Hybrid DVR) over various phases. A hybrid HD DVR is also perfect for upgrading a system so that ‘critical’ areas are can benefit from HD Megapixel cameras whilst less important areas can retain standard analogue cameras.


IP CCTV can be, in some scenarios the most suitable CCTV option by a large margin. Within buildings that already has structured network cabling, IP CCTV negates the need for any new major cable installations, and hence potentially reducing the costs when compared to Analogue or HD-SDI CCTV. Expanding an IP CCTV system doesn’t have the usual restraints of the other systems such as a DVR that has reached it full capacity – and again, it is also easier to do so from a cabling point of view so long as the the existing network is in place.

Wayne from Reading says:
“DAS security have recently installed a fully wired alarm system and an IP CCTV system. We are so pleased with both pieces of equipment it has really given us piece of mind. The CCTV system has a fantastic picture quality and very easy to use. The alarm covers the whole house and is also easy to use. I would recommend DAS Security to anyone who needs this type of work carried out. They are very professional and courteous at all times. They are also very patient with us when learning how to use the equipment. Great stuff and thank you very much.”
