VIDEO SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS (CLOSED CIRCUIT TELEVISION SYSTEM OR CCTV)
Video surveillance cameras are a visual technology that combines the analog benefits of traditional CCTV (Closed Circuit Television) with the digital advantages of IP (Internet Protocol) communication networks, allowing local and/or remote monitoring of images and audio, as well as the digital management of images, for applications such as license plate and facial recognition, among others.
The circuit can simply be made up of one or several surveillance cameras connected to one or more video monitors or televisions, which reproduce the captured images. Although, to improve the system, other components such as videos or computers are usually connected directly or linked by network.
The cameras are fixed in a specific place. With a modern system, the cameras can be controlled remotely from a control or monitoring roo, or from your mobile device, where you can configure their pan, focus, tilt and zoom.
