How to Hook Up Black & White Stereophonic CCTV

Closed-circuit television or CCTV systems capture security footage for malls, restaurants, stores and parking lots. You can hook up a black and white stereophonic CCTV camera to save the captured footage to a digital video recorder for later review. Most CCTV systems do not capture audio, but stereophonic systems can record both audio and video footage to provide an extra layer of security.

Things You'll Need

  • Coaxial cables
  • DVR

      Fasten one end of the coaxial cable to the "RF OUT" or "OUT" jack on the back of the CCTV camera.

    • 3

      Connect the other end of the coaxial cable to the "IN" jack on the DVR. Turn on the camera and the DVR. Press "Record" on the DVR to begin capturing the footage from the CCTV camera to the DVR's internal storage.

      Connect a coaxial cable to the "OUT" jack on a second CCTV camera. Plug the other end of the cable into the remaining "IN" jack on the DVR. Your stereophonic CCTV system is now hooked up and ready for use.
