Closed-circuit television was used as a form of pay-per-view theatre television for sports such as professional boxing and professional wrestling. Boxing telecasts were broadcast live to a select number of venues, mostly theaters, where viewers paid for tickets to watch the fight live.[17][18] The first fight with a closed-circuit telecast was Joe Louis vs. Joe Walcott in 1948.[19] Closed-circuit telecasts peaked in popularity with Muhammad Ali in the 1960s and 1970s,[17][18] with "The Rumble in the Jungle" fight drawing 50 million CCTV viewers worldwide in 1974,[20] and the "Thrilla in Manila" drawing 100 million CCTV viewers worldwide in 1975.[21] Closed-circuit television was gradually replaced by pay-per-view home cable television in the 1980s and 1990s.[18]
There is a cost in the retention of the images produced by CCTV systems. The amount and quality of data stored on storage media is subject to compression ratios, images stored per second, image size and is effected by the retention period of the videos or images.[113] DVRs store images in a variety of proprietary file formats. Recordings may be retained for a preset amount of time and then automatically archived, overwritten or deleted, the period being determined by the organisation that generated them. 

Most security cameras use Wi-Fi, but not all rely on it exclusively. Some add Bluetooth for local control and easier setup through your smartphone, while others incorporate separate home automation networking standards to interact with other devices, like Zigbee or Z-Wave. For most cameras, all you need to do is follow instructions on an app to connect them to your home network.

Nest's Cam IQ is the most advanced way to make your home safe, but of course that comes at a price. For £299 per camera it is one of the most expensive in-house Wi-Fi home security camera systems, but it is seamless with the Nest app and can distinguish between people, animals and strangers. It includes a speaker to communicate like using a web cam through the nest app. Its most advanced feature is its facial recognition, which is far beyond what the other cameras we tested could manage.
Surveillance camera systems enable you to deter theft and reduce shrinkage. Ninety percent of theft is internal; see what goes on that you wouldn’t otherwise know about. Ensure that your operational and safety procedures are being followed and review any accidents that occur. Afford yourself the peace of mind and pragmatic benefits of protecting your assets and employees. 

75 ohm coax cable is used to wire CCTV cameras to DVRs and monitors. Typically a "Siamese type" cable is used which consists of the coaxial cable for video and a pair of stranded cable for power. This makes it convenient for installers to run both power and video using a single cable. Pre-made Siamese coax cable and spools of RG59 coax cable are available for CCTV camera installations. These same cables can also be used for HD-over-Coax cameras such as AHD or HD-TVI cameras.
Criminals may use surveillance cameras to monitor the public. For example, a hidden camera at an ATM can capture people's PINs as they are entered, without their knowledge. The devices are small enough not to be noticed, and are placed where they can monitor the keypad of the machine as people enter their PINs. Images may be transmitted wirelessly to the criminal. Even lawful surveillance cameras sometimes have their data go into the hands of people who have no legal right to receive it.[51]

Currently CCTV has 10 channels broadcasting around the world (CCTV-娱乐 (Entertainment), CCTV-戏曲 (Chinese Opera International), CCTV-13, CCTV-4 in Chinese, CCTV-NEWS and CCTV-9 Documentary) in English, CCTV-Français in French, CCTV-Español in Spanish, CCTV-العربية in Arabic, and CCTV-Русский in Russian. CCTV-4 ASIA used Japanese in Japan. A Portuguese channel is planned for the near future.
Another factor to consider when outdoor surveillance camera shopping is the camera’s resolution. The higher the camera resolution, the clearer and easier the images will be to see. Ideally, you’ll want 1080p or higher resolution for the clearest images. Keep in mind that if you connect your camera to a DVR or other recording device, it will also need to be HD compatible in order to keep the image at a high quality.
I bought this camera for its price and I just wanted to see the night time picture quality. All my other camera's I have has very poor nighttime vision. So, I was talking to my friend and he told me all cameras have really bad picture quaily. So I installed the camera in as little as 5 minutes. The camera is very well made of steel, not plastic. I placed the camera in the darkest area of my home. Bam!!, I have a fantastic picture at night in real color. This camera you can change the setting to make it show black and white for night vision or color, I chose color The camera is rated at 165 feet night vision, but I can see to the end of my block and that over 700 feet, I can see very clearly into my cars, that I keep on the ... full review

I bought the 4ch 720p HD NVR a little over 3 months ago. I waited to write a review because you really don't know the value of what you got until ample time has passed. Last May while sitting on my back deck enjoying the warm spring morning, movement within my neighbors brush pile shed caught my attention. It was 4 small kittens playing. I quietly sleeked over to get a closer look. Sure enough, they still had blue eyes so they were only a couple weeks old if that. 2 grey ones with black stripes and dots, a mostly black one with splaters of tan, white and orange and an adorable rambunctious blonde one. I watched for a while but knew momma probably would be back soon so not wanting to spook her and have her move them, I went back to my deck. I went inside and ... full review

After you have an idea of where you want to install the cameras, you’ll need to know how many cameras the system will be able to handle. If you want one by the front door, garage, back door, and shed, you’ll want to make sure the system can handle at least four cameras. If you’re considering expanding in the future, make sure you purchase one with additional channels. All the systems in this article include four cameras but have eight channels, so you can add cameras on as you see fit.

In 2012, the UK government enacted the Protection of Freedoms Act which includes several provisions related to controlling and restricting the collection, storage, retention, and use of information about individuals. Under this Act, the Home Office published a code of practice in 2013 for the use of surveillance cameras by government and local authorities. The aim of the code is to help ensure their use is "characterised as surveillance by consent, and such consent on the part of the community must be informed consent and not assumed by a system operator. Surveillance by consent should be regarded as analogous to policing by consent."[105]
Finding the best home security camera comes down to whether it meets your specific needs. Do you want a security camera to deter burglars, or are you more interested in keeping an eye on children or pets? Before you dive into the specs and features of different home security cameras, take the time to identify why you want the camera and what you need it to do.
Yes, analog cameras are especially easy to connect directly to a TV because most TVs have an analog RCA video input. If your TV has an analog RCA input, you can use 75 ohm pre-made camera cable or 75 ohm RG59 coax cable and connect your camera directly to the RCA input of the TV. You can find a more detailed article about connecting security cameras to TVs here.
We have purchased 2 sets of these cameras. We are pleased with their function. We bought our second set of cameras (for a total of 8 now) in April. Early this month the power adapter from the second set started making a humming noise and made the camera image wavy. I contacted the seller and told them the problem and they promptly sent me a replacement adapter and all is well now. We are pleased with the product and especially pleased with the customer service!
Closed-circuit television (CCTV), also known as video surveillance,[1][2] 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 (P2MP), or mesh wired or 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, stores, and other areas where security is needed. Though Videotelephony is seldom called 'CCTV' one exception is the use of video in distance education, where it is an important tool.[3][4]
The system is used by Chicago's Office of Emergency Management in case of an emergency call: it detects the caller's location and instantly displays the real-time video feed of the nearest security camera to the operator, not requiring any user intervention. While the system is far too vast to allow complete real-time monitoring, it stores the video data for later usage in order to provide possible evidence in criminal cases.[119]
Monitoring at night is one of the most common uses for outdoor surveillance cameras, and in order to get a high-quality image, you’ll want to purchase a camera with infrared (IR) technology. Many models have a built-in IR cut-switch that automatically enables and disables the infrared technology depending on the lighting conditions. The number of infrared LEDs used in a camera will help determine how far of a night vision range a camera has.
Saving uncompressed digital recordings takes up an enormous amount of hard drive space, and a few hours of uncompressed video could quickly fill up a hard drive. Holiday uncompressed recordings may look fine but one could not run uncompressed quality recordings on a continuous basis. Motion detection is therefore sometimes used as a work around solution to record in uncompressed quality.

After some research decided on purchasing two: [[ASIN:B01K4DRKSM IeGeek Waterproof Home Security Surveillance Outdoor Bullet IP Camera]] Relatively easy to install mechanically and configure, although a knowledge of IP addresses and router functions is desirable. The instructions, both in book form and the pdf are not extensive (and translated into rather strange English!), and there are many unexplained parameters that are tweakable so beware! The cameras come without a micro SD card on which to record their output.

In 2011, new CCTV head Zhanfan "was found to have proclaimed in July [or January,[53] both before the CCTV appointment in November] that journalists’ foremost responsibility is to 'be a good mouthpiece'"[54] (当好喉舌工具). Internet posts of the comment blossomed after the appointment, one "juxtapos[ing] CCTV’s ... Xinwen Lianbo (新闻联播) and photos of Chinese crowds waving red flags with black-and-white images from Nazi-era Germany". Comparisons with the Nazi propaganda chief Joseph Goebbels (gepei’er (戈培尔)) also spread. Official media coverage of the Zhanfan's presentation focused on his call to avoid "fake news and false reports (失实报道)" but also incorporated the "mouthpiece" comment.[53]

VCA can track people on a map by calculating their position from the images. It is then possible to link many cameras and track a person through an entire building or area. This can allow a person to be followed without having to analyze many hours of film. Currently the cameras have difficulty identifying individuals from video alone, but if connected to a key-card system, identities can be established and displayed as a tag over their heads on the video.[citation needed]
Nevertheless, multi-megapixel IP-CCTV cameras are coming on the market. Still quite expensive, but they can capture video images at resolutions of 1, 2, 3, 5 and even up to 11 Mpix. Unlike with analogue cameras, details such as number plates are easily readable. At 11 Mpix, forensic quality images are made where each hand on a person can be distinguished. Because of the much higher resolutions available with these types of cameras, they can be set up to cover a wide area where normally several analogue cameras would have been needed.
Ok I have been testing the unit and for the price the cameras give very good clean video ,camera's connect up to the NVR wit out problem , NVR works well and is very flexible in its operation , night vision good very clear , motion detection works well.

An article published in CCTV Image magazine estimated the number of private and local government operated cameras in the United Kingdom was 1.85 million in 2011. The estimate was based on extrapolating from a comprehensive survey of public and private cameras within the Cheshire Constabulary jurisdiction. This works out as an average of one camera for every 32 people in the UK, although the density of cameras varies greatly from place to place. The Cheshire report also claims that the average person on a typical day would be seen by 70 CCTV cameras.[77]

Many consumers are turning to wireless security cameras for home surveillance. Wireless cameras do not require a video cable for video/audio transmission, simply a cable for power. Wireless cameras are also easy and inexpensive to install, but lack the reliability of hard-wired cameras.[120] Previous generations of wireless security cameras relied on analog technology; modern wireless cameras use digital technology which delivers crisper audio, sharper video, and a secure and interference-free signal.[121]
Among other factors, the specific type of camera being used has the most significant impact on its cost. The average cost of two digital cameras packaged with an LCD monitor is around US$450. Different brands can also have different prices. The type of technology used also has an impact of security camera installation cost. Wireless camera systems are generally more expensive than their wired counterparts.

Now that you’re ready to begin purchasing a system, it’s time to determine the type and number of cameras, sensors, detectors and alarms you’ll need. There are basic alarm systems that include door sensors, window sensors and a keypad to control arming and disarming. For properties that have more square footage and openings to cover, a smart security system with wireless doorbell cameras, spy cameras, motion sensors, and multiple door and window alarms can all be controlled remotely via your smartphone or tablet, allowing you to keep an eye on things from anywhere, especially when you’re not home. To cover all your bases, be sure to look into driveway alarms, voice recorders, water leak detectors and pool door alarms. 

Each of these operations is transmitted with a description, allowing detailed monitoring of all actions of the operator. Some systems allow the user to search for a specific event by time of occurrence and text description, and perform statistical evaluation of operator behaviour. This allows the software to predict deviations from the standard workflow and record only anomalous behaviour.[47]
Many civil liberties campaign groups, academics and consultants have published research papers into CCTV systems. Opponents of CCTV point out the loss of privacy of people under surveillance, and the negative impact of surveillance on civil liberties. Furthermore, they argue that CCTV displaces crime, rather than reducing it. Critics often dub CCTV as "Big Brother surveillance", a reference to George Orwell's novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, which featured a two-way telescreen in every home through which The Party would monitor the populace.
Analogue signals can also be converted into a digital signal to enable the recordings to be stored on a PC as digital recordings. In that case the analogue video camera must be plugged directly into a video capture card in the computer, and the card then converts the analogue signal to digital. These cards are relatively cheap, but inevitably the resulting digital signals are compressed 5:1 (MPEG compression) in order for the video recordings to be saved on a continuous basis.
The amount of free online storage and cost of storage plans can vary drastically by manufacturer. For example, Netgear’s Arlo cameras come with seven days of free cloud storage, which stores the most recent seven days of motion-triggered video clips, and charge $10 per month or $100 per year for 30 days of storage. Ring video doorbells offer no free storage, but Ring charges only $3 per month per camera or $30 per year per camera for 60 days of storage.
In October 2009, an "Internet Eyes" website was announced which would pay members of the public to view CCTV camera images from their homes and report any crimes they witnessed. The site aimed to add "more eyes" to cameras which might be insufficiently monitored. Civil liberties campaigners criticized the idea as "a distasteful and a worrying development".[41]
I was a little concerned by some reviews of the camera and the app. Totally unjustified. Excellent in both ways. Set up in about 15 minutes and the quality day and night is very good. Good follow up from the supplier and I am confident they will provide first class support should I require it. I am only average technically but had no problems . Instructions very clear. I would recommend this product.
The UK Highways Agency has a publicly owned CCTV network of over 3000 Pan-Tilt-Zoom cameras covering the British motorway and trunk road network. These cameras are primarily used to monitor traffic conditions and are not used as speed cameras. With the addition of fixed cameras for the active traffic management system, the number of cameras on the Highways Agency's CCTV network is likely to increase significantly over the next few years.[citation needed]

If you’re using CCTV cameras outside, make sure they’re weatherproof and have the recommended IP rating of 66. Wireless cameras are available, but you’ll still have to run a cable to a power source. Position cameras where they can’t be tampered with, but are accessible for maintenance and cleaning. You can buy vandal-proof cameras, but these tend to cost more.
