Analog CCTV cameras are hard wired to surveillance cameras and connected to the DVRs and need to use coaxial cables such as RG59 and a power adapter to operate the analog surveillance camera.

Coaxial cable are needed to connect it to the DVR and power supply for the analog CCTV camera to run.This means analog cameras need multiple cables and  which can be quite troublesome for some.

Firstly, Analog camera are called coloured camera which display coloured and high definition footage.

Secondly, many might think IP cameras are better than analog camera as IP cameras use POE(power over ethernet) which enables the user to power up and access the IP camera with a single Lan cable(Cat5e/6).  However, analog camera can also run a single Lan cable to power up and run the video footage similar to IP camera.

Lastly, having a coax cable and power adapter is not necessary for an analog cameras. By using a lan cable (Cat5e/6), it can power up and run the video footage to the DVR. Analog camera uses a pair of video balun to allow video transmission using unshielded twisted pair wire Cat5e/6 cables.This means analog does not require multiple cables to run.A single Cat5e/6 cables is enough to run the Analog CCTV Camera.
