Transcript of History of Video Surveillance

Camera Development
With the creation of the camera in 1880, and a smaller version produced in 1939, cameras were able to be used for purposes besides taking family photos, and without people noticing.
Computer Integrated Technology
The creation of video tapes, and later, with the development of computers and microchips in the 1970s, cameras could now be used to monitor continuously and at night. The video could also be recorded for later viewing.
Modern Surveillance
In today's world, we are not just monitored by cameras. Our online activity, credit card transactions, and even mobile phone movement are tracked.
