Is there anybody using HDTV for CCTV purposes?
Is it adequate? Does it offering the high detailed image required?
I am reffering at a Casino CCTV system, with fast moving images and low light.

I suppose it's possible if the casino is outfitted with HD cameras / displays with the proper cabling. Sure an A/V consultant/contractor can quote what such a project would cost. However, unless the displays at the security room are significantly larger in size (42" or bigger), I'm not sure how beneficial the HD resolution would be.

HDTV has much more detail than analog CCTV... and it's got twice the framerate for smoother motion when the 720p/60 equiptment is used. Many LCDs have the res, but may not accept HDTV type signals... and HDTV is widescreen 16:9... for closer viewing, a 30 - 37" display will be fine. Recording will have to be done with D-VHS units, since other recorders can't record HDTV.
