Y3K revolutionises high-definition CCTV market with affordable HD 960H 4-camera kits
Y3K, the UK's leading manufacturer and distributor of HD CCTV systems, is to strengthen its range of high-resolution cameras by offering HD 960H cameras and DVR kits at prices that will make this new technology affordable to everyone for the first time.
960H, a new analogue standard for security cameras and DVRs, produces images that are 960 horizontal and 480 vertical pixels large and will eventually replace Y3K's D1 resolution analogue cameras and DVRs.
The new launch of IQCCTV 960H is an exciting time for Y3K as it continues to offer its customers the latest in CCTV technology at very competitive prices. These products offer additional benefits compared with current D1 resolution systems and are a real alternative to costly IP megapixel systems.
Multiple benefits compared to D1
Upgrading from D1 to 960H offers many benefits for end-users and installers. In terms of image quality, IQCCTV 960H offers the following:
* Higher resolution recording, capable of capturing images that are 33% larger than D1 and 500% larger than CIF
* Real-time recording at 30fps, ensuring no loss of image quality
* Sharper images with more detail and colour. Cameras and DVRs can capture images up to 700 TVL, the highest TVL currently on the market
* True-to-life aspect ratio. 960H creates widescreen pictures that don't need to be stretched to fit widescreen TVs and monitors.
Commenting on this exciting launch, Paul Singh, Y3K's Group CEO, said: "IQCCTV 960H is a truly flexible technology and offers installers an easy upgrade path to sell to companies that already have a security camera system, making it easy for existing analogue installations to be replaced. It's simple - all you need to do is upgrade to 960H cameras and a DVR system while retaining your existing coax cabling. The cameras are also compatible with standard-resolution DVRs, but will only give you improved picture quality and performance when recorded on a system that supports full image sizes. The two main advantages of 960H that installers won't be able to resist are the backwards compatibility with standard resolution cameras and DVRs, not to mention the unbelievable price at which Y3K can sell this technology."
Superior image quality
As the need for CCTV images of better resolution increases, 960H offers superior image quality when compared with D1 and is now firmly established as a real alternative to megapixel CCTV, which is more expensive and more complex to install.
IQCCTV HD 960H 4-camera kits will be available in bullet and dome camera configurations and will include an HD 960H DVR, 1 TB hard drive, remote control, USB mouse, 4 x cameras, 4 x video cables, camera power supply, a 1-metre HDMI lead and an Ethernet/Network cable.
