HASH(0xa3024060) out of 5 stars Excellent review of video surveillance design and app's June 2 2005
By Stephen M. Thompson - Published on
Format: Hardcover
"CCTV for Security Professionals" does a great job of reviewing design and application guidelines for video surveillance. It is comprehensive, but not complex. The book is targeted to an audience familiar with video security requirements who desire practical guidelines, not detailed engineering checklists.

"CCTV for Security Professionals" begins with older VHS tape-based analog technologies and moves through more advanced digital disk-based applications--but the real value of the book comes from a discussion of requirements for camera selection, placement, and lighting. The book is useful as an overview as well as a reference.

It is very concise & thorough explaining the different terminologies used by different systems, pros & cons, how to plan according to the different purposes, uses, areas, locations etc.. I would highly recommend this book, for anyone to buy before planning on buying a CCTV equipment.

CCTV for Security Professionals
Textbook style manual with few photos and no diagrams. Well organized but badly needs updating. No review of DVRs or flat panel monitors. Outdated review of PTZ CCTVs.

HASH(0xa3024894) out of 5 stars The book was in good condition delivery was bad!!! Aug. 24 2006
By A. Rodriguez - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I order the book with expedite service, the book never arrived. But at least Amazon, responded and took care of the situation. I received the book a day before I needed and was able to work my task.

Other than the delivery problems, the book was in good conditions.

This is only one thumb up.
