All About CCTV

CCTVCCTV stands for closed circuit TV. The system employs a number of video cameras in an area that is to be secured. The cameras are connected to a computer that keeps on recording the output from these video cameras to a disk.

The number of cameras depends on the type of surveillance required. They all may be connected to a single computer or to more than one computers depending upon the frequency of clips to be captured per video camera. The mounting of the video cameras is also a factor that needs to be given a thought.

This guide brings together articles from BrightHub to offer you information about CCTV systems.
