Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) comprises of a TV or video system in which the signals monitor specific places, primarily for surveillance, monitoring, and visual recording and security purposes. CCTV systems consist of Charged-Coupled Device (CCD) video cameras for video recording, wired or wireless communication mediums, Transmitter and Receiver System or Internet System for Video Transmission and Monitors for video reception and private observation of the camera’s input. Modern CCTV systems provide high-resolution display; zoom in/out ability and speakers enhancement.
