How CCTV Camera Works

Firstly, the light falling on the surface or an object is reflected back to the camera. Higher the lens capacity (megapixel), more information the light carries.

The camera lens absorbs the light signals and sends it to the image sensor present in the camera. This image sensor converts light signals to electrical signals (Analog signals) and carries it to DVR/NVR.

In analog cameras, the analog signal is processed by an analog signal processor (ASP) present in DVR and the generated video is stored in DVR’s Internal/External Hard disk drive.

In Digital cameras (IP cameras), the analog signal is converted to a digital signal by ADC converter and the generated digital signal is processed by the digital signal processor (DSP).

NVR processes video data in the camera itself. Processed video is transmitted to NVR for storing and viewing.

DVR/NVR is connected with the monitor to view recorded video directly.
They can also be connected with Router & Modem for remote viewing.
