Closed–Circuit Televisions (CCTV) refer to a surveillance system using cameras that transmit visual information over a closed circuit through an electrical conducting cable or wireless transmitter and receiver. It is used both for security purposes and traffic observation.

The CCTV of the OSU Transportation and Parking Services (TPS) is connected to its Parking Dispatch Center. The cameras are utilized as follows: for the cameras at street intersections, they act as detectors to change the signal timing, as well as assist with security and ground transportation information. For the parking garages they act as customer service assistance devices allowing dispatch to assist someone who is visibly having difficulty.
