Hi sorry for the delayed response, I have been in and out of the office.
Hi I would assume that your CCTV signal would be similar to that of an analogue TV signal. Any of our scopes will allow you to have a look at the signal, however it all depends on the level of detail you want. For example if you use our entry level oscilloscope , the 2203, then you can see one line of data, if however you wanted to have a look at a whole frame and zoom into it then you need something with a larger memory (the more memory you have on a scope the longer you can sample at high rates).
Another consideration is voltage resolution, the more bits you have the more detail you will get out of your voltage. The 2203 is 8 bits and gives you 256 increments across each voltage range we provide (so if you were to use the +/-1 V range then you would have 2V/256 approximately 8mV).
If however you want more detail, our 12 bit scopes will give more increments, 4096, so 2V/4096 is approximately 0.4mV). So if you are interested in looking at noise on the signal a 12 bit scope is more appropriate (3224 or 4224).
However a picture is worth a thousand words, so I have taken some screen shots of various scopes with a video signal generator, hopefully this will help you make your mind up, please look at the attached pdf file.
