CCTV camera? Answered

This isn't really a question as such.

I have been looking at the news of the various attacks around the world recently and almost 100 % of the CCT camera footage is appalling. WHY?

You can buy a 1080P gopro for a couple of hundred pounds. Why are these picture so bad.

A CCTV cam can do full HD or even more - but they are costly.
Especially if you need multiple cams and recorded video.
They are a deterrent at best but no solution.
But even a full HD cam won't produce really good images if there is 95% background around the guy in question - does not leave enough pixels to work with.

I think it has more to do with satellite transmission and satellite interference.

As good as satellites are they are not perfect and the images are being sent from remote places and mobile transmitters to the TV station.
