Testing Original Dahua HDCVI

Author: Ethan Ace, Published on May 19, 2014

Have IP cameras met their first real HD challenger?

Dahua, a major Chinese surveillance manufacturer approaching a billion dollars in annual revenue, is now aggressively targeting a non-IP, coax based HD offering to Western markets, they call HD-CVI.

Coax based, non-IP, HD cameras have been around years (sometimes branded as HD SDI or HDcctv) but the effort has largely failed due to a horrendous marketing effort, weak manufacturer support and uncompetitive prices.

Now, Dahua is pushing hard on HD-CVI, that claims the simplicity of analog plus analog pricing for full HD video.

We bought 3 HD cameras, including 720p and 1080p bullet cameras and an integrated IR PTZ, plus 2 HD DVRs all for just $1200 total - a remarkably low price for HD cameras and recorders. 

We tested those cameras and recorders against comparably low price / entry level IP products.

Our test results answered the following key questions:

  • Image: How did image quality compare for HD CVI vs HD IP? Day and night?
  • Length: How well did HD CVI run over coax up to 1000 feet and with poor connectors?
  • Latency: How much did latency differ between HD CVI and HD IP?
  • PTZ: How well did PTZ controls work with HD CVI?
  • Configuration: How did HD CVI camera configuration compare to HD IP?
  • Value: What is the overall value and potential of HD CVI vs HD IP?
