CCTV technology advances raise new human factor challenges in the use and operation of these systems. Increasingly it’s the operators’ abilities which now must be fully considered if the full potential of a CCTV system is to be realised. This paper will present some core human factor considerations including, target size requirements, the impact of monitor numbers, image complexity and a taxonomy for CCTV tasks. Experiments will be described on the impact of different arrangements of images on a motorway detection task.
