What is HD?

HD or "high Definition" is a term used to describe the resolution provided by digital cameras. They are also called network cameras, IP cameras and megapixel cameras. They provide the highest definition and clearest video on the market. Their resolution is measured in pixels rather than TV lines. The term "HD" is specifically refering to 720p and 1080p resolutions.

As you can see the Hi-Res video sample above and the HD sample below look similar in clarity. Only when the video is pulled to full screen is the difference in the video quality apparent.
