Paper Abstract

This paper attempts to explain the basic principles of video recording machines and discusses important considerations when selecting these devices for use in a TV system. The recorder can be a crucial element in a TV surveillance system. It can furnish law enforcement with a documented copy of the criminal act which is apparently widely accepted in a court of law as long as the recordings were obtained in an acceptable manner. For good, hard evidence , however, it is important that the pictorial evidence be as clear and distinctive as possible. In some cases, this requires a high performance machine, but in others, a moderate, inexpensive recorder will do. This should give some indication that the total system should be carefully examined and the choices weighed. It is hoped that this paper will make these choices more clear.
