Nonetheless, conventional CCTV setups face numerous obstacles, complicating the task of security teams in identifying and addressing potential threats.
Compression: Compression is used to eliminate unnecessary data from the footage transmitted to your video recorder, thereby saving space. Two of the more common compression techniques used for high-definition video are MJPEG and H.264. You can also use MPEG4, but the quality tends to be lower than that of MPEG4s aforementioned counterparts. Compression methods are relatively complex and vary in their applications depending on your needs and hardware.
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.
