Clarity is Everything

This crime happened at 7.30am on April 10th 2010 at Jalan Ipoh, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The victim, Mary Rose Josept James was on her way back after her morning walk. She spotted 2 suspicious men on a motorcycle and suspecting something amiss, she climbed over her neighbor front gate. One of the robbers with a machete followed suit, climbed over the gate and snatched her gold chain.

Luckily Mary was unharmed in the incident.

This incident was recorded by a CCTV camera in the house compound but from the unclear recorded video footage, we could not recognise the robbers. Hence in my opinion, in any CCTV system clarity is more important than the recording frame rate.

The ultimate surveillance camera which give you many times the clarity of a conventional analog camera is Megapixel network IP camera.
