Types of Communication Channels in a CCTV Security Camera System

Performance of a CCTV Security Camera SystemCCTV Security Camera System

It has been highlighted again & again on this blog that performance of a CCTV Security Camera is not something which is totally dependent on the camera itself, which means, you cannot give 100 % credit to your favorite camera for its best resolution, and on the other hand you cannot even blame it for the low performance .

The show of CCTV Security Camera System is a team effort and is run by various components/modules in it playing their part and contributing to its overall performance. One such module is communication channel deployed for taking signals from camera at one place to the central monitoring station. We already discussed various types of topology employed in a CCTV System in our previous post for the case when communication channel is optical fiber network for larger distances. But there is more to it. Depending on the distance to be covered, technical expertise, budget available, there are n number of communication channels that can be used to make a CCTV System work in a premises.


Criticality of a Network Design in a CCTV Security System

For any CCTV Surveillance Security System, deployed in large industrial Security Camera Installationsetups- the role of network design is very important, as it is design of the system which decides the performance of overall Camera Security System, rather than the quality or specifications of individual camera itself.  I am not saying that we should ignore the specifications of camera in such a case, but it is like in a class a highly qualified professor gives his best lecture to the students, but due to large size of class, his voice is not reaching all his audience. In such a case, it is not the professor who is giving a bad lecture, but his lecture will still be perceived as useless for students at the back, as his voice is not reaching to the last student of the class.
