HD Analog vs IP Tutorial 2014

Author: John Honovich, Published on Jul 11, 2014

In the past, the only way to get megapixel / HD was to use IP. Now, a crop of alternatives are emerging including SDI, CVI, TVI, 960H, to name just a few.

Here is a high level overview of how they compare:

Inside, we break down each of these 8 key factors, explaining how the 5 main options compare and contrast for each.

[Note: This tutorial was originally written in July 2014 but was substantially re-written in August 2015 to reflect improvements in HD Analog options in the past year.]

An the most important factor seemingly ignored in this debate: it is a television standard, just like its analog cousin. This means there is a technology "backbone" in a way. So far, all of my vendors licensed to produce CVI are limited to 720P. And the 1080P is limited to 500ft or so. I can squeeze 750 out of HD SDI with extenders. I wouldn't count it out yet. Especially with the recent price drop in equipment cost. I find new HD SDI product being released all the time. One complaint, wireless transmission is quite limited, but I have found a product suite to combat that too!
