The first time I saw a Mobotix camera at the NFL Hall of Fame in Canton, OH, I thought it was the ugliest camera I had seen. This at least looks like a camera. A cheap, fake like looking camera, but assuredly a camera. That Mobotix contraption had me scratching my head wonder WTH it really was.
I don't know about cameras, but when it comes to screenshots of security software in movies, Hollywood tends to make what we have in the real world look somewhat bland.
Take a look at Mark Coleran's showreels containing "Fantasy User Interfaces" that he has done for movies, and see how many VMS, access control... interfaces you see there.

Keep in mind the oldest of the above reels is 10 years old.

It reminds me of the foscam ptz that we recently tested. Perhaps they chose a WiFi camera after reading this.

Also, on movies or TV shows when a person is using a chat program or something similar on a computer, when the letters are typed out from the remote user, it always makes a small clicking sound. Or like when they finally unlock a password and it starts to readout all of the secret information that they have been trying to crack, it makes a small clicking sound on the readout. It always usually with a black background with green lettering I have noticed as well. That never happens in the real word either.
Also, noone ever uses a mouse in movies.
As far as CCTV footage in movies, the footage has very little color and usually has a green hue to it. What cameras are these people using?
