What is HD-SDI?
HD-SDI is a standard from the broadcast industry based on SMPTE-292M. It means high-definition serial digital interface (HD-SDI) and supports up to 1080p30 (1920 x 1080 progressive scan 30FPS). HD-SDI delivers high quality HD digital video over standard RG59 coaxial cables at a length of 100 meters or more.
It preserves existing coaxial cable infrastructure commonly used in analog CCTV installations. As a result, HD-SDI is a cost effective solution for unlocking HD for CCTV customers, and it quite possibly is a true replacement for analog cameras.
