Security Camera Compliance?

I know this maybe a simple answer, however I am having a hard time finding a formal answer.  But what are the regulations of security cameras in a network when it comes to PCI compliance/Calea?

I know they should be on their own network/vlan, physical security locked etc.  Also police usually likes to see 31 days retention, but is there any official ruling on exact settings for PCI Compliance or standard compliance?

Policy on retention is likely going to be dictated by your legal department, should you have one.  To be honest, I've not heard of PCI dictating anything about your video cameras or a CCTV system.  

I would default to your own wisdom and intuitive decisions.  Yes, dedicated VLAN is a great idea, and not having one is a bad one.  Yes, the server that's holding the data should be physically protected from those who don't need-to-know.  I would also run application white listing on the server.  

I would recommend (as much as possible) having your cameras wired, not wireless.  That eliminates a lot of attack vectors right there.
