LTS is shipping 3MP TVI. Have one but havent hooked it up yet.
1, technically, its TVI 3.0 that is supposed to support 3MP - 5MP, not 2.0.

I have not seen any HD analog shipping beyond 1080p. David's reference to LTS 3MP is the first I've heard, though LTS tends to be aggressive on new product releases, so that would not surprise me.

Do you need >1080p for all channels? If you only need it for a few channels, use an IP camera with your TVI DVR.
As far as I heard directly from Hikvision engineers, now they have only 5M fisheye camera, it means not like true 5M, it is more like combination of several 2M streams in one channel. 3M is already launched in Russia - almost completed product line from Hikvision and several it's OEM partners, including DVRs, but still never met this solution installed on real object.
I hope somebody here has experience with 5M TVI fisheye, any feedback about it performance?
We got feedback from a source well connected to TVI development. They observed:
3MP cameras are the most cost effective and I believe that is the reason you see more of it than 4MP and 5MP. 4MP and 5MP sensors, lenses, and ISPs are quite expensive.
Part of that seems to relate to HD analog still being focused to lower-end, price sensitive customers. I am curious to see if or when that changes.
