Modern security systems don't "record onto tape," either.

Let's be real how many places are using ssd, my works modern system still uses dvds.

The important part is that not just anyone can go and access it or interfere, 1 guy with the key and that's it

Sorry but the big glaring weakness to me is that there's a human with access to it and that it's locked behind a lock. Both of those things are fallible. No matter how good of a lock you think you have, it can be exploited. No matter how trustworthy a person seems, they can be bought/coerced/eliminated.

True but that's why it's proof beyond a reasonable level of doubt.

I could take strands of your hair and plant them at a crime scene while wearing a high tech containment suit to not leave any of mine.

I could hire actors who are your body double and commit the crime in front of a bunch of witnesses.

Everything is fallible but as video evidence stands a key from a trusted person, who often stands to gain little from giving others access is the most reasonable level of evidence you can provide.

Cctv systems are also a little different in the way they record onto whatever medium they chose that itself has validation methods I am aware of but never had explained.
