Today’s coax based analogue surveillance systems are migrating to ‘IP’ camera technology. IP systems have many advantages but the cost of re-cabling the network for IP can be expensive. NVT’s Ethernet over Coax (EoC) transmission technology can dramatically reduce IP migration costs by allowing up to four IP/Megapixel cameras to be connected and powered over a single legacy CCTV network coax cable.
This solution is typically one-third the cost of upgrading to an UTP based IP solution. By leveraging already installed cable, the NVT EoC solution provides quick installation, with minimal disruption to an organisation’s operations. Very important where shut downs can mean lost revenue.
For example: There was a need to expand the surveillance coverage at a historic hospital’s facility. This expansion needed to be done without damaging the valuable structure or causing disruption to patient services. Four existing analogue cameras were being used to watch over the entrances and receiving area, but their coverage was no longer adequate for the job.
The goal was to increase the camera count to a total of 16 cameras. Initially, the additional surveillance system needed to be Megapixel IP and were to be connected via newly installed UTP cable runs. But, alternately, by deploying EoC technology, the hospital was able to connect four additional IP cameras to each of the four existing coax cable runs, to deliver a sixteen Megapixel IP camera capability.
NVT EoC enabled site management to take full advantage of an economical upgrade using the latest Megapixel and analytic surveillance technology, while preserving the historic integrity and continuous operation of the facility. With NVT, you can now release the power of your existing coax infrastructure and gain all the benefits of IP and Megapixel surveillance.
With NVT EoC…remember “Don’t re-cable, re-enable!”
