Can you run an IP video surveillance camera on coax?
Another cutting edge solution from your security professionals at Allied Lock.
Are you adding or wanting to add IP cameras to protect your property with video surveillance?
IP Video Surveillance is the next generation of video surveillance security. Of course, if you are looking to purchase video surveillance cameras, you are looking to purchase IP Video Surveillance cameras as to not have to replace them in the near future.
What if you have an existing coax cable with a traditional BNC connector that you would still like to use?
HIGHWIRE turns any existing analogue video cable (co-ax) into a high-speed Ethernet connection.
Thus the original investment in the cable installation can be retained, even though IP cameras are installed. With HIGHWIRE, Ethernet connections can be up to 350m apart (or longer with RG11 cable) which overcomes a severe limitation (100m) with standard CAT5 cable.
HIGHWIRE is not a video codec or any kind of video it is simply a signal conversion unit for ANY type of network device (IP camera, network switch, DVR / NVR, PC etc.)
Fast Ethernet Over Video Co-ax
- Uses legacy cabling and cuts installation costs
- Simple to install – no setup – rack mountable
- Supports multiple/mega-pixel IP cameras on one cable
- Full-speed Ethernet over 270m RG59 (450m RG6)
- Auto adapts to cable length and quality
- Uses existing camera power supply (12V DC or 24V AC)
- Fits inside camera housings
High-Speed Ethernet Over Video Cable: Why HIGHWIRE cuts your installation costs
- Uses legacy analogue video cabling
- Supports multiple IP cameras
- Supports MEGA-PIXEL cameras
- Supports any network device – fully transparent 100BaseT Ethernet
- Simple to install – no IP address or other setup required
- Full-speed over 200m cable runs
- Compact – fits inside camera housings
- Low power – uses camera supply
- Rack-mount option for control room end
- Solves network traffic problem for MEGA-PIXEL cameras
HIGHWIRE turns any existing analogue video cable (co-ax) into a high-speed Ethernet connection. This allows multiple networked IP cameras to replace a single analog CCTV camera, without installation of any new cabling. Thus the investment in theoriginal cabling (usually around 30% of any system installation cost) can be retained and exploited for new-generation networked CCTV camera systems.
HIGHWIRE is especially suited to mega-pixel IP camera applications or multiple IP cameras as it supports high data rates.
HIGHWIRE is not a video codec or any kind of video capture device – it is simply a signal conversion device enabling Ethernet over co-ax for ANY type of network device (e.g. IP camera, network switch, DVR/NVR, PC or even a printer).
HIGHWIREs are used in pairs and installing them is extremely simple.
One HIGHWIRE unit is connected to each end of the co-axial cable with the BNC connectors, thus providing a straight RJ45 to RJ45 network connection from end to end across the existing cabling.
This HIGHWIRE to HIGHWIRE connection instantly operates as a full-duplex 100BaseT Ethernet connection and is completely transparent to any network device. HIGHWIRE has no MAC address or IP address and requires no set-up whatsoever.
Auto Cable Adaptation
Where cable length, quality or signal interference prevents full rate operation (200Mbps), the HIGHWIRE pair will auto-adapt to transmission conditions, lowering the total bandwidth as necessary. This will be transparent to the network system, although the connection bandwidth will be reduced. However it is the total rate (up + down) which decreases – so that for example at half rate, a camera that requires up to 90Mbps downstream and 10Mbps upstream capacity will not be affected.
HIGHWIRE itself is a compact box about the size of a cigarette packet. It has a standard RJ45 network connector on one side and a co-axial BNC connector on the other. It uses very little power, and is designed to fit inside a camera housing.
CCTV cable is normally routed to a central point, forming an effective single “star” network topology.
Thus exploitation of legacy video cable with HIGHWIRE actually solves a major problem with mega-pixel cameras that of the high network bandwidth requirements for such devices.
Need to add more than 1 IP camera and already have existing coax cable?
Four x PoE Network Cameras over One Coax Cable
New to the HIGHWIRE range, this model integrates HIGHWIRE with a four-port 100BaseT network switch, including Power over Ethernet (PoE) for powering four PoE Class 2 (6.5W) IP cameras via the CAT5 network cable. HIGHWIRE Quad itself is powered by a 12V or 24V supply near the camera end, and supports all four IP cameras connections on one legacy coaxial video cable, communicating with a standard single-port HIGHWIRE at the control room end. HIGHWIRE Quad can even support 4 x mega-pixel IP cameras on one coax. Wall-mountable, robust, compact and extremely cost-effective.
