Annotation: The rapid technological developments that are occurring in the field of closed-circuit video systems (CCVS) make it crucial for security decisionmakers to be aware of prospective changes, especially considering the large investments involved in CCVS.
Abstract: Total systems integration will be one of the most important forces driving new CCVS technology in the 1990's; it entails the ability to integrate fire detection systems, intrusion detection systems, electronic article surveillance, CCVS, and computer hardware into one system. A central element in successful integration is the microprocessor control/matrix switcher, which is the focus of continuing advances. Other advances will probably occur in imagers, camera size, the use of color cameras, sensitivity and resolution, and multichannel links in fiber optics. Mobile applications will also become more common and will encompass police cars, school buses, and refuse vehicles. During this period of technological advances CCVS manufacturers must provide not only equipment but also continuing education through seminars, videotapes, and general verbal and written communications.
