Q. What is resolution?
Resolution is the key indicator for the quality of the system. You may see systems with 2MP, 2.4MP, 5MP, 8MP and 12MP. These are all resolution indicators for the quality of the image.
Higher resolution does not mean you can see further in the image, but it does mean better quality and clarity with the picture. This is key for identifying people and details in footage and so the higher resolution means better identification.
When using digital zoom of the system, you will not lose as much detail. This means when enhancing the image, you won’t lose as much as quality or clarity.
