CCTV Evolution

CCTV evolution

Evolution of CCTV (Closed Circuit Television).

It started with telescopes monitoring the horoscopes, then the need increased when the German armed forces needed to monitor the launch of V2 rockets in 1942. The system was developed, designed and installed by Walter Bruch. 


The system purpose was live monitoring these rockets through cameras and monitors, just like today. Cameras were set near the unsafe places. 

In 1949, technology was launched on a commercial basis and an American contractor began promoting the system. It was small, low-resolution black and white monitors with no interactive capabilities.

Later in 1964, Liverpool police initiated using CCTV for criminal purposes and it was too helpful for them as it assisted in solving many cases.
