What Does a Surveillance Camera Do?

Here is the definition of a surveillance camera:

Connected to a central system, the surveillance cameras send footage back to a monitor that displays what the cameras see. Unlike traditional television broadcasting, CCTV sends a closed signal to the receiving monitor, allowing viewing to be strictly observed by the connected equipment, only.

Here is what security cameras do:

Most security cameras on the market today are standard analog security cameras connected directly to a digital video recorder. The cameras in this type of system consist of a lens, DSP chip (digital signal processing chip) and a housing. The cameras are simply the window used by the DVR (digital video recorder) to see.

To explain it simply, it is really the difference of the job each camera needs to perform.
