Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) Cameras

 
— What are Closed Circuit Television Cameras?
 
Closed Circuit Television Cameras are the cameras used to monitor the activity on major roadways across Ohio. Most cameras are equipped with pan/tilt/zoom capabilities, which allow the TMC operators to rotate the cameras and zoom in for a closer look at what’s going on. The cameras are primarily used to view any roadway incidents or accidents that occur so that a corresponding message can be posted on the DMS and/or broadcast on HAR.
