Nonetheless, conventional CCTV setups face numerous obstacles, complicating the task of security teams in identifying and addressing potential threats.
Surveillance System Equipment. There are two types of cameras used for surveillance - analog and IP (internet protocol), which are digital cameras. Analog cameras: These are usually lower resolution than the more modern IP technology, and require cable connections to a DVR to record and store footage, plus wired connections for power. To ensure the integrity of the footage, the camera must be located fairly close to the DVR and the number of ports on the DVR determines the number of cameras that can be connected. So, additional DVRs may be needed to support sites requiring many cameras.
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.
