What is the difference between a normal TV and a security
On a security monitor, picture quality is much higher than on a normal TV. The
enhanced image is especially important for viewing multiple camera images (when
using a video splitter).
Security monitors have no TV tuner.
When should you consider using a security monitor?
When you plan to record multiple cameras through a video splitter, use a
security monitor for greater detail.
For the highest image quality in your recorded video during playback, security
monitors can show details that could never be seen by a TV.
Use security monitors for viewing in extreme heat or cold, dusty or otherwise
Use security monitors when BNC connectors are necessary.
