The relationships between monitor size, number an observer performance were investigated. In the Autumn of 1995, a survey of 20 town centre CCTV systems was conducted. The survey incorporated CCTV control room audits which assessed the ergonomic design of CCTV control rooms. As many of the ergonomic designc solutions associated with CCTV are incomplete, the survey aimed to review common practice and collected qualitative data. This paper outlines the main findings on ergonomics from both the earlier experimental work and the survey.
