Well as the title would suggest this really is not a fair match up " VGA vs 1080P ". However this is a real world problem. While the picture is not an acurate description of the scene due to the work enviroment. The real world scenerio is a casino with a camera looking at a bank of slot machines. I'm constantly faced with the task of telling the slot manager how much money was inserted in the machine by a guest. Most of the slot machine cameras are analog and aging. Some have served for over 8 years. Coming in at 73 ppf. While the ppf is not that bad. The scene selcted does not truly represent the actual lighting conditions that exist in a casino enviroment.
I've never been able to present my case for upgrading the camera system as easily as showing these two photo representations. With the same camera setup. The distance to target is 20' and the width of the target is 10'. A 1080p camera makes the ppf go up to 200.
While is some instances a ppf of 73 (VGA) would be enough ppf to be able to do the review requested, A ppf of 200 (1080P) would significantly ensure that the lighting conditions that exsist within the casino should no longer cause a problem. Now the trick will be getting the GM to part with the money for some real cameras!
