This CCTV glossary is an attempt to pull together all the terms you are likely to come across in the course of your involvement with CCTV.
It has been created from my knowledge and research in the field of CCTV. It is accepted that it is not necessarily the definitive glossary, but I am striving to find CCTV definitions that need to be added. It would be very helpful, to me, if you have any definitions you cannot find or would like added, that you let me know by E-mail at :-
