Dahua 4MP HD Analog Tested

Author: Ethan Ace, Published on Nov 10, 2016

A few years ago, analog was SD only.

In the past few years, HD analog, up to 1080p, has become commonplace.

Now, HD analog is doubling its max resolution to 4MP.

We bought and tested two of Dahua's new 4MP CVI 3.0 cameras, the A43AG23 turret/eyeball dome and the A43AB23 bullet, along with the C52A1N DVR to see how this new generation stacks up against 4MP IP.
