    Upgrade coax system to HD, or run cat5e?

    I have a 8-9 year old low resolution analog wirepath surveillance 8 channel. When my house was built I asked the guys to hardwire cat5e alongside the RG59, for future flexibility but they did not and the drywall went up. They chalked it up to miscommunication. I want to upgrade from the analog which is basically horrible image quality and I am debating the HD over coaxial (such as hikvision) vs. IP systems over cat5e. The problem is the house design will make rewiring with cat5e pretty tough but doable. I would be replacing the HD recorder and all cameras regardless of the upgrade path. Does anyone have a strong opinion or experience either way? Any recommendations for specific products? I would be self installing, Thanks.
