How CCTV works?
How does a closed circuit TV work?
A CCTV is basically formed by cameras, a transmission medium, monitors, recording systems, data recording and some other complementary elements, such as lenses and storage and processing devices for the information collected.
Its operation is simple: CCTV security camera captures the images of the areas that are being monitored, which are then transmitted to the monitors that reproduce them using different media, such as coaxial cable, fiber optic, UTP cables or the most modern wireless systems, which do not need cables of any kind.
Based on this base scheme, current technology allows CCTV systems to be complexed, adapting to the available budget, the needs of the locations to be monitored and other factors. What you have to keep in mind is that an ideal closed-circuit TV system provides many advantages
