Picture a bell curve and apply it to cameras designed for the needs of different users.

This is where high-definition (HD) technology comes in—HD has emerged as a potential solution that sits right in the middle of that bell curve. Here is an article I wrote for Government Security News that will help you get a better understanding of the value of HD cameras and where they fit in the numerous surveillance camera offerings available today.
