The trend to HDTV is in full swing. The share of sales enjoyed by new HD capable television devices has in the meantime exceeded 90%. From service station attendants to businessmen or home owners – video images in HD quality are becoming standard. It is therefore no wonder that high-resolution systems are also in increasing demand in the professional video surveillance sector.
The abbreviation HD-SDI stands for “high definition serial digital interface”, which is uncompressed transmission and display of digital HD signals via a serial (analog) interface. Using this technology, developed by professional studios (for recording HDTV programs), analog surveillance videos can now also be transmitted and displayed in high resolution and in real time.
