What does HD-SDI mean for you?

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.

The most important benefits at a glance:

  • High resolution: Surveillance images in full HD quality (1920 x 1080p)
  • Live images in real time
  • Ready for fast setting-up thanks to plug-and-play installation
