Burn is the permanent freezing of an image onto a sensitive area of a camera or monitor, and can be avoided by shutting off the device when not in use, or closing an image or application when finished. This can happen to a security camera if the CCD sensor is exposed to direct sunlight causing permanent damage. This used to be much more of a problem with CRT monitors and with Plasma TV's. However newer LCD monitors and TV's do not have problems with burn. Sometimes called Burn-in as well.Get Free Video Surveillance Systems Quotes!
