Selling Super High Resolution Cameras

Author: IPVM Team, Published on Jul 11, 2016

Is bigger better?

In the past decade, the surveillance industry has moved from 0.3MP to 1MP to 2MP to 3MP to 5MP to 4K (8.3MP), etc.

But there are even higher resolution cameras above that. This report covers selling those super high resolution cameras, those that deliver beyond 12MP.

Summary

Super high resolution cameras share many of the same pros and cons of selling 4K cameras, with both the pros and cons being even more so when applied to higher resolutions.

Additional Pros Of Super High Resolution:

  • Demonstrate "product leadership"
  • Eliminate competitors

Additional Cons of Super High Resolution:

  • Higher proportion "wasted" pixels
  • Price to pixel ratio
  • Limited CODECs
  • Proprietary or Limited VMS Options
