HI,I was just sitting here at my PC and was thinking about the clarity of security cameras
and was wondering if that is related to like TV screens i.e. 720p,1080p and such because if
you watch on the NEWS channels some of the pictures are so bad you could not even recognize
your own mother on some of the screens,but then i suppose if you want a really good picture
all you need is more money then common sense,thanks

Perhaps but I think many companies install security cameras and then forget about them. Anything will deteriorate if not properly maintained.

Many of the older systems are very low resolution by today's standards. Older stores probably still use VHS and the tapes have been overwritten continually for 20 years.

HI,I went to GOOGLE and searched for security cameras and found that to possible get
good definition you would have to spend as much for one camera as you see advertised
for a complete system in stores,you know like over $300 per camera,then when you get into recording
it gets even worse because of the frames per second times 24hr a day,you could go thru 2TB of a HDD
in about a month unless you tweaked how it recorded on the DVR.
