HD Analog Usage and Rejection Statistics 2015

By: John Honovich, Published on May 11, 2015

Non-IP HD cameras are one of the most notable new trends in video surveillance but how much are they being adopted?

150 integrators answered our survey explaining how much AHD, CVI, TVI and SDI they are using, including why some are using and others have rejected them.

A few key patterns from the statistics:

  • Strong adoption shown, relative to other emerging video surveillance technologies.
  • A great deal of confusion amongst HD analog options emerged.
  • A clear loser shows but a clear winner among the options is not.
  • A significant minority is essentially ideologically opposed to HD analog.

Inside this note, we break down the statistics for AHD, CVI, TVI and SDHI plus share color commentary from the integrators on why they are using, considering or rejecting HD analog offerings. Finally, we conclude with projections for future HD analog prospects based on these results.
