Sonygroup?? You should adjust your post CMOS is a newer technology because its digital whereas CCD is analog. CCD more expensive because of it manufacturing & production process hence CMOS is the cheaper solution.
CMOS-Complementary metal–oxide–semiconductor older type of cctv system but very cheap and popularly used.
CCD-Charge-Coupled Device slowing becoming modern pricing is medium to high while quality can be from 720p upwards

I used cameras claiming up to 1000tvl and they were a waste compared to digital. RHD technologies has pretty good prices on his ip cams and nvrs, plus it should be a breeze for you to configure lol.
