WiFi mesh networks for CCTV

one of our site engineers has asked a question about using mesh to get an HD CCTV system connected. The cameras would be in hard (expensive) to cable outdoor areas, around the perimeter of a large yard. 

Is this something a mesh would be able to handle in terms of bandwidth etc? Is it just a bad idea?

We have Aerohive recently installed in an office environment which I am very happy with so I would like to stay with Aerohive if possible for other WiFi implementations. 

Any comments or experience would be appreciated. 

Thanks in advance

I've been told that we have successfully been deployed in situations like you describe, but only when we had a really amazing partner who understands outdoor networking and wireless implementation. So, yes it can be done, but is not advised unless you have the right installers.
