Nonetheless, conventional CCTV setups face numerous obstacles, complicating the task of security teams in identifying and addressing potential threats.
Camera Connections. Connecting analog cameras with a DVR system is done by way of directly plugging a BNC cable from the DVR into the camera. To connect more cameras to the DVR system, you need additional cables. DVR systems are difficult to scale up because once every BNC connection is occupied by a camera, you need to purchase an entirely new DVR before adding another camera to the system. DVRs also require that the connected cameras be in close proximity to the recorder otherwise, the video quality begins to degrade.
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.
