The Power of HD Video Shown With Detroit Gas Station Shooter

Author: Brian Karas, Published on Mar 23, 2016

CCTV video quality is widely seen by the public as terrible - grainy, out of focus, hard to make more out than moving fuzzy blobs.  

The Motor City has been pushing businesses to install HD systems, and the effort is paying off. A shooter at a gas station in Detroit was arrested quickly after being identified from security video.

This is a good example of the power of moving old CCTV systems to HD.
