Welcome to Security Camera Integration Wiki


Closed-circuit television (CCTV), also known as video Surveillance, is the use of video cameras to transmit a signal to a specific place, on a limited set of monitors. It differs from broadcast television in that the signal is not openly transmitted, though it may employ point to point (P2P), point to multipoint, or mesh wireless links. Though almost all video cameras fit this definition, the term is most often applied to those used for Surveillance in areas that may need monitoring such as banks, casinos, airports, military installations, and convenience stores. videotelephony is seldom called "CCTV" but the use of video in distance education, where it is an important tool, is often so called.

In industrial plants, CCTV equipment may be used to observe parts of a process from a central control room, for example when the environment is not suitable for humans. CCTV systems may operate continuously or only as required to monitor a particular event. A more advanced form of CCTV, utilizing digital video recorders (DVRs), provides recording for possibly many years, with a variety of quality and performance options and extra features (such as motion detection and email alerts). More recently, decentralized IP cameras, some equipped with megapixel sensors, support recording directly to network-attached storage devices, or internal flash for completely stand-alone operation. Surveillance of the public using CCTV is particularly common in many areas around the world. In recent years, the use of body worn video cameras has been introduced as a new form of Surveillance.

Video Surveillance has been around for a lot longer than you think

Though many see video surveillance as a new thing, these types of cameras have actually been around since 1942, and have been in use since the sixties. In fact, the first CCTV camera was installed in Germany to watch the launch of the V2 rocket, and it was created by German engineer Walter Bruch. Video surveillance systems started out as 100-percent analog systems and are gradually becoming digital. Today's systems, using networking security cameras and PC (personal computer) servers for video recording in a fully digital system, have come a long way from the early analog tube cameras, which were connected to a VCR (videocassette recorder). NorthEast Remote Surveillance is an excellent source for your Security Camera Installation.
