Nonetheless, conventional CCTV setups face numerous obstacles, complicating the task of security teams in identifying and addressing potential threats.
PoE Switches (Power over Ethernet). IP cameras can also be connected to what is known as a power over Ethernet switch, which both sends data from the camera and provides power to it. Analog cameras, on the other hand, require a switch to run the signal from the camera as well as a separate power source, meaning a more complex setup and more wires. PoE switches are also generally regarded as a more secure way to transmit data.
Definition of CCTV Systems:
Closed-circuit television (CCTV) systems refer to a network of cameras and recording equipment used for surveillance purposes. Unlike broadcast television, the signal in a CCTV system is not openly transmitted but is instead monitored, typically for security and surveillance purposes. These systems are prevalent in various settings, capturing and recording footage that can be reviewed or monitored in real-time to enhance security, deter crime, and assist in investigations.
