|NV-EC1701 Ethernet-over-Coax (EoC) transceiver allows 10/100 BaseT Ethernet and PoE power |
Network Video Technologies (NVT), has released a new Ethernet-over-Coax (EoC) transmission solution that enables coax-based CCTV installations to migrate to IP. The NV-EC1701 Ethernet-over-Coax (EoC) Transceiver is a compact media converter that allows 10/100 BaseT Ethernet and PoE power to be transmitted up to 5,000 ft (1,500 m), using new or existing coax cable. Transceivers may be linked together using BNC ‘T' adaptors, forming a bus-architected network that supports up to 4 EoC transceivers and IP/Megapixel cameras.
A 48VDC class 2 power is delivered to one transceiver, which distributes ‘always on' PoE to up to 4 remote transceivers and their IP/PoE cameras (or other devices). Camera loads of up to 45 watts are supported. Saving time and money, the NV-EC1701 is quick to install, simple to use, and network transparent, with no transceiver IP or MAC address configuration required. Three status LEDs indicate power, link, and activity for its RJ45 and coax ports.
"With the introduction of the EoC product, we are providing our customers with a cost-effective opportunity to deploy IP cameras over installed coax cable, at distances and power supply levels far beyond conventional PoE," says Steve Proctor, NVT's Sales Director. "NVT's advanced transmission and power technology provides ultra-robust full-duplex connectivity for all IP cameras, including megapixel, affording an easy transition to IP."
NVT will also be showing their range of UTP CCTV Hybrid Video transmission products. These include the PS42 Power Supply StubEQ Active Receiver Hubs that provide exceptional noise-free DigitalEQ video and camera power, the award-winning ‘DigitalEQ ' and StubEQ Active Receiver Hubs, and Power, Video & Data (PVD) range.
