Battle of the cameras

1 February 2013 News & Events

Are more megapixels better? Does high-definition (HD) solve your surveillance problems? Does it matter whether you have a 1-megapixel camera or one that says HD on the box?

These questions and more will be on the table at iLegal 2013 where a panel of experts from industry, system integrators and consultants will be on hand to expand on the requirements of CCTV cameras for today’s surveillance needs. You need more than resolution if you want to extract value and get a return on your CCTV installation and our panel of experts will be looking at what aspects to take into account when planning an installation or upgrade.

Back by popular demand, iLegal 2013 will be taking place on 14th March 2013 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Rosebank, Johannesburg (on the Gautrain route). As always, iLegal 2013 promises to be the leading event of the year for everybody involved in the use, operation, installation and implementation or any aspect of surveillance, from security managers, executive managers, IT leaders and technology providers and installers.

If you have questions on the HD vs. Megapixel question, bring them along and ask our experts to assist you in making the right decision. If you prefer, send us your questions and we will put them to the panel on your behalf. You can send them to with the subject line 'iLegal Questions'.
