960H CCD image sensor
960H represents the number of effective pixels in the horizontal direction of the CCD image sensor.
Similarly, 760H and 510H also represent the number of horizontal pixels of the image sensor.
960H is an increase in the number of pixels of nearly 30% compared to 760H, resulting in significantly enhanced picture detail.

Horizontal resolution & Over 650 TVL
Horizontal resolution represents the level of detail in the horizontal direction of the video. A larger number indicates higher definition video. The unit is generally noted as TV lines or TVL.
(Measurement method is referred to JEITA (TTR-4602B)).
Advances in signal processing technology have enhanced horizontal resolution even for 760H. However, 960H increases the number of pixels of the CCD image sensor that corresponds to the "eye" of the camera, enabling to obtain more natural high-definition video. In addition, the signal processing technology used in the "Effio" Series realizes the higher horizontal resolution.
Output format of the "Effio" Series
Analog composite video signals output from an "Effio" Series camera system that uses a 960H CCD image sensor are also completely compatible with the NTSC and PAL signal standards.
