The size of commercial vehicles and machines mean vehicle blind spots are a major factor in collisions across all industries. Operator positions, bodywork, absent rear windows and bulkheads create further restrictions and can greatly limit driver visibility, making collisions even more likely. The significant financial cost of vehicle and property damage is magnified by associated costs such as downtime, but even greater are the corporate and emotional costs when there is personal injury.
Brigade’s AHD (Analogue High Definition) camera monitor systems enable drivers and operators to manoeuvre and drive safely, all in superior quality. Vehicle-mounted cameras assist the driver to see blind spots and offer a manoeuvring aid by delivering a live feed on the monitor of everything in the camera view, including people or obstacles.
High Definition Vs Standard Definition Vehicle CCTV
The difference between high definition and standard definition is the number of pixels contained in the displayed image. HD images have more pixels per square inch than standard definition. This means a HD system will show much finer details than standard definition systems. Typically, HD is referred to as 720p and above.
High Definition formats: Analogue vs Digital
What is the difference between Analogue High Definition and Digital High Definition camera systems?
Analogue vs Digital
The difference between these two cameras is in the method in which footage is recorded and delivered.
Analogue cameras capture images and send the signal over coaxial cables to a recorder or ECU. These images are then converted from analogue to digital signals, compressed, and then stored on a hard drive or shown in real time on a monitor.
Digital cameras or IP cameras (Internet Protocol cameras) capture images digitally from the start. These cameras send data over a computer network rather than going to a recorder / ECU first.
Do I need a certain monitor in order to see high definition footage?
You will need a high definition compatible monitor in order to play back high definition footage.
Monitors that only support standard definition footage can still display footage from a HD camera. For example, even if your image is high quality at 1080p, a monitor that can only display 480 pixels per square inch will not be capable of displaying all the extra details that high definition monitors can.
High definition means a high resolution will be displayed on your monitor, providing clarity and detail, so that everything can be seen clearly. You will be able to see an object or person in your blind spot with ease and act quickly to prevent an accident.
Analogue high definition technology can transmit video over traditional cabling across distances as far as 500 metres, which is plenty of cabling length for any commercial vehicle. This means our installer network can ensure you are set up and ready to go with safety on your side.
