Where do you find cat6 cable over 100ft long as you can extend this to 328ft?
BEST ANSWER: You buy a spool of CATx cable and cut it to length and terminate the ends. 100M(328ft) is an ethernet limitation.
What kind of Ethernet Switch is recommended for this product?
BEST ANSWER: It is a 100mb connection, use a 10/100 or gigabit switch. Should not need anything special unless you require a more advanced network.
What Ethernet Switch is recommended to be used with this product?
BEST ANSWER: Device is 100Mbps. Pretty much anything can be used. I've used managed and unmanaged switches, both 100Mbps and 1000Mbps switches. Both as an isolated network (a switch just for video distribution) and on switches with other IP traffic. If on the later and the switch is managed, I do recommend setting up a VLAN just for the video traffic.
Can you have multiple encoders on the name IP network? Assuming this will require separate VLANs?
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you are correct. must have separate VLANs. Even if you would only use 1 encoder, but place it on a network with other IP traffic, I would recommend separating traffic if your network allows it.
Will this product decode the H264 signal from a PTZOptics PTZ camera to the HDMI input on the PTZOptics camera control unit such that camera power, camera control and video can be carried on a single Ethernet cable?
BEST ANSWER: It is not intended for this role. I don’t think you’d get very far trying to do this. The control panel won’t let you change much. However for a broadcast hdmi to h.264 IP system it works very well as long as you use the Blackbird encoder.
For the H.265 video, would I be able to stream via Wi-Fi? Do you know what bandwidth is required for this streaming video?
Will this item convert the H264 signal from a PTZOptics PTZ camera to the HDMI input on a Blackmagic video switcher so that camera power, camera control and video can be carried on a single Ethernet cable?
