Whats is AHD CCTV is an analog high resolution video surveillance caméra that uses coax cable to transmit HD video from security cameras to DVRs adapted to AHD cameras. AHD supports 720p and 1080p HD video resolutions. You can find different styles of AHD CCTV cameras here.
What type of cable do AHD cameras use?
AHD CCTV cameras are connected to DVRs using the same type of coaxial cable as traditional analog CCTV cameras, typically RG59 or RG6 coax cable. One of the advantages of AHD over HD-SDI cameras witch is another HD over coax security camera standard, is that RG59 coax cable can be run long distances without video loss. So far in our experience, installers can reliably use RG59 coax cable up to a max distance of 800 feet for AHD cameras. AHD cameras can also use UTP cable with video baluns to run cable up to 320 Meters / 960 feet with CAT5 cable.
