By Joe Cieszynski

Closed Circuit tv (CCTV) surveillance is among the quickest growing to be parts within the safety undefined. This e-book is a vital advisor for execs concerned the install and upkeep of CCTV platforms, procedure layout, specification and buying and the administration of CCTV structures. in contrast to such a lot present books on CCTV, this name isn't just a dialogue of protection matters, yet an intensive consultant to the technical facet of the topic - cameras and displays, video recording, cabling and transmission, install and maintenance.

The concise, available textual content makes it for hard-pressed practitioners and scholars on education courses.

The moment variation is absolutely dual-standard for buddy and NTSC platforms. New fabric within the moment version covers lights matters and kit, electronic sign transmission, built-in CCTV / intruder alarm platforms, CAT5 cabling, electronic recording, video printers, ancillary gear, and a glossary.

This e-book is usually recommended by means of SITO (the defense education supplier, united kingdom) as compatible for its classes, town and Guilds 1851 programme, and the underpinning wisdom requirement of point three NVQs from SITO / C & G.

Sample text

The TDR can also indicate the location of an excessive bend in the cable which is impairing its performance. An optical TDR is available for use with fibre-optic cables and, like the co-axial version, it is an essential part of a service kit for anyone dealing with fibre-optic cables regularly. Although the optical unit is somewhat more expensive, it can very soon pay for itself by making savings in both time and materials. 3 Light and lighting Although the majority of the equipment in a CCTV system is in the business of processing electronic images in some form or another, the lens has the task of processing the light that is reflected off the surface of the target.

1. As you can see, the human eye begins to respond to light in the red region at wavelengths around 700nm (nanometres), and loses its response around 350nm. However, we must remember that the camera pick-up device can have a much wider response, particularly in the infra-red region, making it capable of producing a picture in what would appear to us to be total darkness. Light and the human eye The eye reacts to light, converting the incoming electromagnetic radiation into small electrical signals which are sent to the brain.

This factor tends to limit the use of microwave to short range, unless it is possible to locate the equipment at both ends of the system on top of high structures. Alternatively the signal would propagate well across flat expanses, however there are not many of these in the UK! In a CCTV application, the transmitter is located close to the camera, connected by a co-axial link. The receiver is located somewhere within line of sight, but in a place where the signal can be sent via cable to the control room, ideally as close to the control room as possible.
