Dan, this is an analog transmitter. Digital transmitters are in the 200-400$ range and most folks stay away from them as they'd rather deal with the snow and static rather than missing an instant from camera stutter. Timing is critical and if you see even the slightest trouble in front of you, you can avoid. This is also why I hate HD Over-The-Air streams.

 

Since the receiver outputs in various formats like NTSC and PAL, I could potentially see this ability happening down the road.

 

The cameras use security cam outputs, so its just a simple composite signal. The number of TV Lines varies per brand and model. Some newer cameras are hitting 900 TV lines making it a very good picture. You will need a decoder to pull these images from these cameras to even view on a normal television.
