Welcome to the
Guide to Closed Circuit TV (CCTV)
Town Centre systems comprised almost entirely of remote control cameras, will hardly if ever be able to fulfil the requirements for even the most basic Passive Evidential Quality Recording (PEQR).
What has happened historically, is that system designers (and their clients) have gone for the most simplistic approach of achieving the greatest potential area of visual coverage, using the least amount of imaging equipment (PTZ or fully functional Dome cameras).
Doktor Jon tends to have a somewhat more objective approach to system design:-
Only when these key cameras have been correctly profiled, should attention then turn to the appropropriate locations for (active) remote control PTZ or Dome type units, which may specifically be used for tracking and identifying suspects.
In existing Control Rooms. greater emphasis sometimes needs to be placed on the way in which available camera images are presented to the Operator, in order to achieve maximum efficiency.
