Strange Ptz

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Recently looked at a PTZ which was wired to a switch in cat5 (both terminated rj45 at the switch and in the camera) and it then had a cat5 patch lead from the switch to the dvr which brought it into the system and its own seperate local supply wired into terminals in the PTZ, is there a name for this as i havent come across it before, its not HD its an ancient system which presumably was cutting edge on install because the quality is much better than most of its age! I cant remember the name of the dvr manufacturer but its old american pc based.

Any ideas or previous experience with this sort of PTZ? Basically want to know if I upgrade to an HD IP PTZ and upgrade the switch to a PoE switch will it come on the ancient dvr or any potential issues?

Many Thanks

Dan

Sure the cat5 from the camera isn't wired into a patch panel and not a switch?

Does the patch cable to the DVR turn into BNC?

It's definitely a switch, and no it goes from switch to the back of the DVR.
