Hikvision, the supplier of innovative video surveillance products and solutions, is further advancing surveillance camera technology by introducing Power over Coaxial to its analogue cameras. This makes installing the cameras a lot simpler, which is great news for installers and end users alike.

Power over Coaxial (PoC)

Power over Coaxial (PoC) basically means that power for both the camera and the back-end DVR runs through the coaxial cable. This removes the need for separate cables, sockets, and plugs. For installers, this means a much more time- and cost-efficient installation. For example, in a conventional analogue system, the installer may need electrical engineers to set up wiring for an installation first. But with PoC, they can simply connect camera and DVR equipment directly, so there’s no need for this electrical ‘preparation’ work.

End users, on the other hand, will find the products totally ‘plug and play’, with no configuration for camera access needed and power available straight away. PoC is also very stable, making it especially useful for regions with voltage instability issues.

“Because we can introduce a UPS system as a backup power supply for the DVR with PoC technology, then when local power goes down, the UPS can power up the PoC DVR, and the PoC DVR can power up the PoC cameras accordingly”, says the Hikvision Product Manager.

This is another example of how Hikvision is leading innovation in the security industry.
