Why 960H Technology - the New Analog!

960H is the new analog technology that finally allow cameras and DVRs to capture up to 750TVL, the highest TVL available to date.

960H represents the number of horizontal pixels in the CCD image sensor. 960H is the highest resolution available for analog CCTV and provides a 30% increase in resolution in comparison to D1.

The greater the resolution, the higher the definition of the video image. a to realize the high resolution video.

With previous D1 DVRs, although you may have a 650TVL analog camera, you can only record at D1 resolution which can clearly discernonly up to 540TVL.

With the new 960H DVR, not only can it capture high-resolution 750TVL cameras, but it can also enhance the recording quality of the existing cameras as its full resolution of up to 750TVL will be realized.

Some of the key points of 960H:

960H Frequently Asked Questions

What is 960H?

960H is a new standard for security cameras and securityDVR's that provides high resolution images using advanced image sensors. Security cameras capable of 960H produce an image that is 960 horizontal and 480vertical pixels large (960x480).

What are the benefits of 960H?

What do I need to do to take advantage of 960H?

To take advantage of 960H recording, you will need security cameras that are capable of producing 960H images and a security DVR capable of recording at 960H resolution.

I already have a security camera system. Will my old equipment be compatible?

960H security cameras and DVR's are backwards compatible with standard resolution cameras and DVR's. However, both your security cameras and DVR must be 960H capable to get the improved picture quality and performance. 960H cameras will provide a good picture on a standard resolution DVR, but they will perform even better with a system that can support the full image size.

All your existing BNC video cables are compatible with 960H DVR's and security cameras. To upgrade to 960H, simply replace your existing DVR and cameras.

960H Video Surveillance

What is 960H?

'960H' is the name given to a series of CCD image sensors developed by the Sony Corporation in 2009.

These CCD image sensors are capable of capturing video images at a resolution of 976hx528v. The 960h CCD sensor is often used in conjunction with Sony's new DSP (Digital Signal Processor) known as Effio™, which further enhances the quality of the video image

Traditionally the maximum resolution obtainable from an analogue CCTV camera was 650 TVL (TV lines). With the use of Sony's new 960h CCD in conjuction with features from the Effio DSP, resolutions of up to 700 TVL (JEITA TTR-4602B) can be achieved.


Beware of what you are getting

Some organizations sell systems with 960H cameras included and call them 960H solutions, however to take advantage of the superior image quality you must use a 960h DVR which are not readily available in the market presently. Also beware of DVR models that have 960 in the model name because this often refers to the total frames the DVR can support, not


Benefits of 960H

Drawbacks and considerations for 960h

You will need to upgrade your DVR/NVR recording device to utilize 960h. You will also require more hard disk storage to accommodate for the larger image size. Although 960h will give you a better image quality over a standard analogue system, the image quality is still superior on an IP or HD-SDI based system. There are a lot of fakes out there, claiming to be 960H, so be careful.
