Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) surveillance is one of the fastest growing areas in the security industry. This book is an essential guide for professionals involved the installation and maintenance of CCTV systems, system design, specification and purchasing and the management of CCTV systems. Unlike most existing books on CCTV, this title is not just a discussion of security issues, but a thorough guide to the technical side of the subject - cameras and monitors, video recording, cabling and transmission, installation and maintenance.

The concise, accessible text makes it for hard-pressed practitioners and students on training courses.

The second edition is fully dual-standard for PAL and NTSC systems. New material in the second edition covers lighting issues and equipment, digital signal transmission, integrated CCTV / intruder alarm systems, CAT5 cabling, digital recording, video printers, ancillary equipment, and a glossary.

This book is recommended by SITO (the Security Industry Training Organisation, UK) as suitable for its courses, the City and Guilds 1851 programme, and the underpinning knowledge requirement of Level 3 NVQs from SITO / C & G.

Joe Cieszynski is a well known magazine writer and a contributor to the SITO distance learning materials on CCTV. He has extensive experience in the industry and as a lecturer.

* Demystifies CCTV technology for installers and managers
* Concise, accessible text ideal for hard-pressed practitioners and students
* Fully dual-standard coverage for PAL and NTSC based systems
