      The preface notes that this book is intended to address the
      requirements of the security professional, rather than those
      interested in the technical details of closed circuit television
      systems. Chapter one looks at the purposes for which cameras can be
      used in various industries and settings. Requirements are addressed
      in chapter two, but primarily in terms of the volume of equipment
      needed. Elements of the monitoring and playback area are in chapter
      three. Chapter four deals with camera specifications and features.
      Control equipment is outlined in chapter five. Chapter six looks at
      recording and storage systems. Various means of reducing the storage
      and review needs, and triggering or directing recording to important
      events, are addressed in chapter seven. Chapter eight discusses
      covert and hidden cameras. Cabling and other communications systems
      are dealt with in chapter nine. Considerations of outdoor
      installations are in chapter ten. A case study of a particular
      application and the process of determining and fulfilling the
      requirements is presented in chapter eleven.

      A decent review of a specialty topic, accessible by anyone concerned
      about it.
