RG59 Coax Camera To Ethernet Adapter


Hello everybody,

Hope all are doing ok with the current events!!

My question has nothing to do with that.

I was wondering if anybody has tried or used an adapter or converter to take a IP Camera Video signal to send on RG59 Coax back to the
head-end and the convert back to Ethernet for connection to a NVR??

Something like this:
http://www.seco-larm.com/NE-SE01-020Q

Basically how good does it work for the application if you know.

I have a customer that has some old video cameras on RG59 Coax and would like to move up to a IP Camera system.

Any thoughts would be helpful.

Thanks,

Les

Hi rjconstructs

Well I am sorry as well. This is a Low Voltage Forum.

Are you looking to get an education in the field of Electrical/Electronics??

If so I really can't help you here. It took me over 40++ years of effective education, hands on, making things smoke and not, designing and installing a bunch of crazy stuff and making it work. I don't think I can take the time to re-write my posting to help you.

It always helps to opinions or actual knowledge about new stuff so
that is why I asked the question here. So far my posting has been
read 37 times with one response.

It's early and I will be patient.

So rjconstructs I do thank you for your response.

Have yourself a good rest of the week.

Les

Re: RG59 Coax Camera To Ethernet Adapter


Sounds like you need an IMUX and a REMUX per camera.....

Why don't you upgrade the cameras and recorder? Keep the coax using coax cameras, and an nvr with an IP connection.
I'd be surprised if you can upgrade the resolution without upgrading the cable.

Upgrade the WIFi and utilize wireless cameras. Ring is one system, $100 an end point and $120/ year unlimited storage and access. Not a UL listed system though...

Hi Porterfarm,

Right now have a PC recorder capturing both IP and Coax cameras.
It is on or has been on its last leg. Keeps crashing.

The old Coax camera locations would be a nightmare to rewire with
CAT5 at this point. There is only three(3) and if the converters actually work effectively it would be the better upgrade.

As for resolution of picture quality. That is important and one of the
reasons I am asking for input. If the Passive dongles can't transmit
good quality 1080p then it may not be worth the expense.

As for wireless, that is not practical. As for Ring again not practical.

Thanks for you input.

Les

Would it work? Magic 8 ball says "decidedly so." (I once had 6 months of training at a former baby bell, so my gut thinks, yes, it would work. Hardly a ringing endorsement. )

This looked interesting.

Hi MarkJames,

Yes, I could roll the dice as well and maybe get lucky. Maybe not!!

As for you amazon link, yes that does look interesting as well.
But, I already have power at the camera end. So the PoE aspect
is really not needed.

I noticed the acronym "EOC" in that ad and it was referenced
a number of times. Did not see a breakdown of what it stands for.
I found the following and others but none seem to fit the bill.

End-of-cycle
Emergency Operations Center
Equal Opportunities Commission
Episode Of Care
Engine Order Capability
Earth Observation Center
Eastern Oklahoma County

Electric Over Coax could work but PoC works better.

I may have gone off on a tangent here so I pull myself off the brink.

Thanks for the input, and have a good weekend.

Les

I think it means ethernet over copper, i.e the ethernet cables.

Re: RG59 Coax Camera To Ethernet Adapter


1080p requires 1.8 Mbps, so maybe verify that all the components of the circuit can handle it. (Ethernet is good for 10 Mbps and up, easy.)

Another interesting link. Have a good one.
