Understand that CCTV Cameras have been around for a while and there are many many options,  which is why it is probably a bit confusing if you’re not in the know. The HD- stands for High definition, which is to say they are not a standard definition. High resolution is also known as HD or high definition. For a long time, signals went HD at all, but along 480 TV line (or 480p) signals.

At some point TVs were able to accept and display digital broadcasts in a format with higher quality than 480 TVL, they had to standardize the quality gap by saying that 480p- or 480TVl were ‘standard definition’ and the new emerging 720p (1280×720) was “high definition or HD”. Since then, even more, high-definition resolutions have become standard- you might be familiar with Full-HD or 1080p, and 4k also known as 2160p or Ultra-HD. Anything 720p or up is considered HD. So that means HD CCTV cameras are any CCTV cameras that can do 720p or better image quality.

There are lots of different terms out there for the various high resolution or HD image qualities we see. 720p, 1080p. 1440p, 2160p.  In fact, by today’s standards 720p is to 1080p what 480p was to 720p, and both fall short of 4k. In CCTV we tend to rate our cameras in megapixels- the number of total pixels in each frame- rather than the P-based resolution standards you see on TVs and Monitors. this is because all TVs and most monitors are 16:9 aspect ratio, meaning their pixels are arranged in a precise ratio, every single time. Cameras may have varying aspect ratios or fields of view- and because of this are better rated in Megapixels to get an idea of quality. Use the chart below to determine how many Megapixels each resolution standard would equate to in terms of visual quality:

720p-   1 Megapixel
1080p- 2 Megapixel
1440p- 4 Megapixel
2160p- 8 Megapixel
