I was going to buy this set today. Is there much difference between 960H and 1080p?

​960H systems use BNC cabling, which can handle maximum up to 720p (1000TVL) however theoretically this is the maximum you'll never achieve it.

960H tends to record in 960x480, however 1080 is 1920x1080 a much higher resolution.

Not to mention TRUE 1080p systems will be NVR, using ethernet cabling which will both provide power and video lines. If someone is selling you a 1080p system that uses BNC cabling they're lying. Best to spend a tiny bit extra (I'm being serious a tiny bit) and go for the better network CCTV. You'll be miles better off in the long run.

There was a decent 720p system on here before Christmas for <£150 if I remember

Firstly, BNC isn't a cable type, it's the connectors name. The cable is called coaxial cabling (also known as RG59) and can easily 'handle' 1080p signals.

Also a 720p camera isn't measured in TVL.

Not true at all. Hikvision (market leaders in cctv as an example) have full HD 2.0mp, 2.4mp etc cameras that use coaxial cabling with bnc connectors that connect to dvrs and will give a full HD 1080p picture.

Also there are numerous HD-TVI, HD-SDI, HD-CVI (and some AHD-H) systems which use RG59 cabling.

Yes, an NVR with IP cameras is a lot more versatile, but costs more than a 'tiny bit extra' for the same coverage and quality.

Also bear in mind that no matter how many mega pixels your IP cameras are, a simple face covering will render it useless for identification purposes.

Not a problem at all, see I'd tend to not to buy a packaged bundle as I find individually buying parts works out better and you can more personalize it, so say you've got an area requiring a camera that sees better long distance you can factor that in. So I'd be sourcing a NVR capable of up to 1080p video and 1-4 Cameras usually from eBay, a cheap and decent brand would be HIKvision.

The thing is most IP cameras (which come in both wireless and wired options, mind I'd always go wired) are going to be better than some of the good BNC cameras. Obviously the best IP cameras will completely school the best BNC cameras. Here's a video to show you what I mean. youtube.com/wat…f2A

Some options like
amazon.co.uk/Sec…NVR

^ Doesn't contain a hard drive so you'd have to source one. Bundle contains 4x 2.1MP camera which you can YouTube and see the average quality you should expect.

laptopsdirect.co.uk/swa…EQQ

^ Not to best system as it's limited to 720p recording.

Anyway, I hope this helps.

I'm aware, I just felt for brevity that it would be better to refer to it by the connector name. But hey ho. Different strokes. No It isn't, but I felt that it was a comparison many would understand, as many know the resolution standards, however don't know where they lie in comparison to TVL.

Well I stand corrected in that regard,as far as I was concerned there was a limitation on the quality on the coax, perhaps I was misinformed. I suppose it depends on what you're buying.

But this system is not exactly branded quality so.

Thanks for the info.

I noticed this link from another thread regarding Sannce/Annke fake reviews on Amazon, looks like they have admitted it as well.

Yeah I wasn't too sure on it, good to know. Either way HIKvision is a good brand that balances quality/price. Worth a look around for sure. Like I said, bundles don't tend to be the best option in most cases.

Good luck!
