SBT Provides Closed Circuit Television, also known by the acronym CCTV, is a private or closed video system where viewing of the video is restricted to a specific group of individuals.
CCTV systems have proven to be essential tools in most any surveillance and security application. Just a partial list of applications includes banking, retail, hospital, traffic management, and city centers. In all of these applications, video cameras are used as visual tools of the security staff or security design.
CCTV Systems can range in size from being within a single building, to a complex of buildings, to large campuses and city centers, and can even span across a continent. Such monitoring of areas and/or activities may be used for security, safety, industrial, or private purposes. The visual images created by a CCTV system may be viewed while an event is happening or recorded for ‘after-the-fact’ review either on-site or off-site. Review is done via the use of VHS videotapes, CD, DVD, and/or other such tape or computer based mediums. Such reviews of prerecorded visual information may also be done ‘remotely’ through the use of telephone lines, fiber optics, microwave, the internet, and/or a host of other such transmission methods according to the design and complexity of the CCTV system.
