eBridge1CT

Ethernet and Video over Coax (EoC) Transmitter

Where to buy

Overview

Transmit networked IP camera signals over conventional analogue coax infrastructure.
The eBridge1CT is a single-channel IP over coax transmitter that enables fast 10/100Base-T Ethernet digital communications over ordinary coax cable.

This easy to install plug-and-play unit simplifies system upgrades from analogue CCTV to networked IP video security cameras. By re-using existing legacy coax infrastructure, the costs and complexity associated with installing new network cabling are effectively eliminated. As such, the eBridge1CT offers an ideal digital upgrade option for a wide range of security applications, including retail, casinos, airports, schools and hospitals.

The compact transceiver allows composite video as well as digital IP camera signals to be transmitted simultaneously over the same coax cable. In addition, the eBridge1CT extends transmission distances to approx. 600m (over five times the maximum transmission distance over Ethernet), thus eliminating the need for repeaters in larger-scale installations.

The transmitter is compatible with Sony V Series IP cameras and PTZ models. Compatibility with X Series and E Series cameras requires PoE.

The eBridge1CT is designed for use with the eBridge 1CR and eBridge 16CR Ethernet over Coax (EoC) Receivers (available separately).
