Sample text

Camera. The camera sensor converts the visible scene formed by the lens into an electrical signal suitable for transmission to the remote monitor, recorder, and printer. Transmission Link. The transmission media carries the electrical video signal from the camera to the remote monitor. Hard-wired media choices include: (a) coaxial, (b) two-wire unshielded twisted-pair (UTP), (c) fiber-optic cable, (d) LAN, (e) WAN, (f) intranet, and (g) Internet network. Wireless choices include: (a) radio frequency (RF), (b) microwave, or (c) optical infrared (IR).

The choice of transmission medium depends on factors such as distance, environment, and facility layout. If the distance between the camera and the monitor is short (10–500 feet), coaxial cable, UTP, and fiber optic or wireless is used. For longer distances (500 to several thousand feet) or where there are electrical disturbances, fiber-optic cable and UTP are preferred. For very long distances and in harsh environments (frequent lightning storms) or between separated buildings where no electrical grounding between buildings is in place, fiber optics is the choice.

The availability of large memory disks (hundreds of megabytes) made these machines available for long duration security recording. Significant advantages of the DVR over the VCR are the high reliability of the disk as compared with the cassette tape, its ability to perform high speed searches (retrieval of images) anywhere on the disk, absence of image deterioration after many copies are made.
