Altronix E-bridge ethernet adapters simplify IP over coax

Las Vegas, Nevada (USA)

At the recent ISC show in Vegas Altronix introduced a high-performance and cost-effective solution that transmits IP video and data over coaxial cable more than 2,000 feet without the need for repeaters.
These new Altronix Ebridge ethernet adapters make it possible to use legacy coax infrastructure with the latest IP video surveillance and access control devices without the cost of installing new cabling.

“Repurposing coax cable for IP applications has many economic advantages, including elimination of the labour costs to pull new wire, the cost of new cabling, and the costs of removing unused wire,” said Alan Forman, President, Altronix. “The ability to transmit video and data over longer distances is another advantage, especially in industrial environments, casinos, schools, airports, retail facilities and hospitals.”

Each paired set of Ebridge1CT ethernet transceivers and Ebridge1CR ethernet receivers enables fast 10/100Base-T Ethernet digital communication to be transmitted over coax cable. The plug-and-play Ebridge1CRT receiver and transceiver kit accommodates multiple IP cameras and devices over a single coax cable or one IP camera with composite video and data simultaneously. Also on display at the show were the new Ebridge16CR 1U rack-mount ethernet receiver with 16 channels, and the new Ebridge4CR receiver with 4 channels.

Dallmeier argues less is more in wide area surveillance applications

As feelings of insecurity are on the rise, demands to expand video surveillance installations and increase the number of cameras in public spaces are growing, and are being voiced by representatives of many political affiliations. But would more cameras or higher resolution cameras really offer more security? Regensburg-based manufacturer Dallmeier, one of the world's leading providers of network-based video security systems, says no. And presents a viable alternative with its video solution for the city of Cologne.

OT Systems new hardened managed 8-port gigabit Ethernet switches

Indirect lightning strikes are common when the lightning current branches off, striking obstacles as it traverses its way to Earth and destroys everything in its path. Lightning strikes can cause dangerous power surges if a surveillance system is not protected. Cameras, storage systems and connection will lose function, suffer damage and loss. An embedded 6kV surge protection from OT Systems, specially designed for surveillance systems can protect against lightning risk. Each copper port can endure a 6kV surge issue and protect the equipment.
