Digital VS Analogue Recording Systems

Analogue cameras are mostly obsolete due to the substantially low video quality compared to digital option. There are now upgradable options for digital cameras over the old analogue cabling. With legacy format cameras and recorders. Allowing to upgrade some of the key cameras to digital whilst leaving the old analogue units in place and replace them as they fail. 

The biggest benefit of a HD system is the camera resolution. An analogue camera system can provide some clear details, and may be a functional option if you are recording a limited field of vision. A digital camera system on the other hand can cover a much larger area, and provide a high level of detail. Digital systems will also have a larger data storage capacity. 

In most scenarios, the functionality of one HD camera will measure up to that of four analogue cameras.
