HD-TVI CCTV Camera is used in the CCTV surveillance cameras, High Definition Transport Video Interface or HD-TVI for short is a technology developed by Hikvision and TechPoint as compared to HD-CVI which was developed around the same period.

HD-TVI is an open-source that has let many other manufacturers and even household DIY experts work on their HD-TVI systems.

When compared to HD-CVI, the technologies are comparable, both in terms of price as well as features but the fact that HD-TVI is open-source gives it an edge in the long run and many products of relatively low prices are available on the market.

Features and Advantages of HD-TVI

Just like any other piece of modern technology, there’s competition and alternatives present and often a consumer must choose between different manufacturers or models of the same equipment. 

So, let’s look at how HD-TVI works when compared to others on the market.

Keep in mind that HD-TVI can provide 720p and 1080p footage over longer transmission distances (up to 500m) with minimal interference and virtually no delay. HD-TVI also supports frame rates of up to 60 fps with 720p while 1080p videos are run at 30 fps.



Compared to HD-CVI, there are not as many technical advantages in favor of HD-TVI from working distances to image quality, both pieces of technology can provide virtually identical results for around the same price. They were able to provide similar frame rates for both 1080p and 720p footage which is one of the major reasons that HD-CVI can compete with HD-TVI in the first place.
As already discussed, HD-TVI is an open-source technology. It low-quality versions are also available from manufacturers which make use of this open-source nature causing many “budgets” versions to be available on the market whereas HD-CVI is limited to being produced by certain manufacturers. This keeps the quality in check but makes the final product relatively expensive.


 Another name that might pop up during your research is HD-SDI which offers a tough competition in terms of quality as it’s not only able to provide a similar resolution to HD-TVI but the overall image quality is considered to be better as well.
However, when it comes to cost and maintenance more money needs to be spent on additional equipment and the HD-TVI overcomes the SDI’s better image quality in terms of cost efficiency and reliability.

At the end of the day, HD-TVI CCTV Cameras are able to provide you with the good surveillance possible, given that you’re able to keep up with their storage and bandwidth requirements, apart from HD-CVI, none of the traditional technologies stand a chance when it comes to pure cost efficiency and image quality.
