There is no way the acronym CCTV can be further shortened unless we are trying to give it another meaning. CCTV is the acronym for Closed-Circuit Television. CCTV is a television system which is used for security and surveillance. It is used by placing it in a strategic place where it will be able to capture optimally and send signals i.e its observation to a computer that is connected to it.

This type of camera is used and put in strategic places that will be very hard to figure out by people. CCTV is used to spot crimes in a specific place. You can easily see it in hospital, bank, supermarket, big companies, and also private housees. A lot of criminals would have gone unpunished if not for the CCTV that captured them when they were committing the crimes. CCTV is also used to Observe the behavior of inmates in the prison.

The word CCTV cannot be abbreviated anymore because this stands for another thing entirely. CCTV means Closed Circuit Television. This is something that has become more popular over the years. It seems that times have changed greatly that a lot of businesses and houses already feel that this is necessary so that they can monitor their houses and their business establishments properly.

This system requires different devices so that it can work properly. A CCTV set usually contains a monitor, a camera, a recorder, and a display. Over the years, the CCTV has started to become more advanced. You can now view the footage of your CCTV from your own smartphone or tablet.

No. CCTV is not a word, it is a set of initial letters of a term that means closed circuit television. Luckily, when this is translated into Spanish, the same initial letters work. CCTV is used in surveillance. It is a self-contained system with cameras, recorders and displays for monitoring activities.

It was brilliantly forecast in the novel 1984 where our actions would be supervised by Big Brother. CCTV has brought many criminals to justice, however.
