How To Create CCTV Network Diagram

Closed-circuit television (CCTV) uses cameras and monitors to carry out video surveillance. Unlike broadcast television this system has only local signal. It is a feature of almost every video camera, yet CCTV is mainly a system for visual control of certain areas such as banks, airports, supermarkets, and other places for security reasons.

CCTV is often used to control production process, especially when people are recommended to stay away from the area (due to dangerous or unhealthy conditions). CCTV may work non-stop or during set periods of time, or watching a definite area and event. Another type of CCTV is digital video recorder (DVR). These devices vary in quality and features: motion detection, email or cell phone messaging etc. CCTV is widely used to observe public areas worldwide.

However, developing and installing CCTV system is a time-consuming process. It also requires certain knowledge and skills. ConceptDraw is a solution of setting video cameras rationally. You can achieve two aims at once: CCTV Design Tool saves your time and your money and helps you make professional video surveillance system.

In the course of recent decades data visualization went through significant development and has become an indispensable tool of journalism, business intelligence and science. The way visual information may be conveyed is not limited simply to static or dynamic representation, it can also be interactive. Infographics can be conditionally divided into several general levels. Primarily, this is level of visualization of information, its interpretation and association on any ground. Second level can be defined as a visualization of knowledge, depiction of thoughts and ideas in the form of images or diagrams. Finally, the level of data visualization, which processes data arrays in charts, enabling the information to be more clearly perceived. You can also identify the main approaches to the creation of infographics: exploratory and narrative. Exploratory method insists on minimalist design in favor of data precision without unnecessary details and is common for scientific researches and anaDesign Pictorial Infographics. <br> Design Infographics *

Local area network (LAN). Computer and Network Examples →

Computer networks nowadays are spread all across the world. The large number of parameters, such as geographic scale or communication protocols, can divide networks. One of the most common types of networks is called local area network (LAN). It convenient to represent network examples by means of diagrams. This local area network (LAN) diagram provides an easy way to see the way the devices in a local network are interacted. The diagram uses a library containing specific symbols to represent network equipment , media and the end-user devices such as computers (PC, mac, laptop) , network printer, hubs, server and finally a modem. There are two types of network topologies: physical and logical. The current diagram represents precisely a physical type of LAN topology because it refers to the physical layout of a local network equipment.Local area network (LAN) diagram

Virtual networks. Computer and Network Examples →

A Virtual network is a computer network that consists of virtual network links, i.e. between the computing devices there isn't a physical connection. Well known forms of network virtualization are virtual networks based on the virtual devices (for example the network based on the virtual devices inside a hypervisor), protocol-based virtual networks (VLAN, VPN, VPLS, Virtual Wireless network, etc.) and their combinations. This example was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the Computer and Networks Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park and shows the Virtual network.Virtual networks. <br>Computer and Network Examples *
