Veracity Highwire QUAD

Four x PoE Network Cameras over One Coax Cable

This model integrates the Veracity HIGHWIRE with a four-port 100BaseT network switch, including Power over Ethernet (PoE) for powering four PoE Class 2 (6.5W) IP cameras via the CAT5 network cable. HIGHWIRE Quad itself is powered by a 12V or 24V supply near the camera end, and supports all four IP cameras connections on one legacy coaxial video cable, communicating with a standard single-port HIGHWIRE at the control room end. HIGHWIRE Quad can even support 4 x mega-pixel IP cameras on one coax. Wall-mountable, robust, compact and extremely cost-effective.


Installing HIGHWIRE is extremely simple. HIGHWIREs are used in pairs. One HIGHWIRE unit is connected to each end of the co-axial cable with the BNC connectors, thus providing a straight RJ45 to RJ45 network connection from end to end across the existing cabling. This HIGHWIRE to HIGHWIRE connection instantly operates as a full 100BaseT Ethernet connection and is completely transparent to any network device. HIGHWIRE has no MAC address or IP address and requires no set-up whatsoever. If the co-axial cable is of poor quality, longer than the recommended distance, or suffers from signal interference along it's installed path, the two HIGHWIREs will auto-adapt to the signal transmission conditions, lowering the total bandwidth as necessary. However, this will still be transparent to the network system, although the network performance (connection bandwidth) will be slightly reduced.

Compact Device

HIGHWIRE itself is a compact box about the size of a cigarette packet. It has a standard RJ45 network connector on one side and a co-axial BNC connector on the other. It uses very little power, and is designed to fit inside a camera housing.

Mega-Pixel Cameras

Exploitation of legacy video cable with HIGHWIRE actually solves a major problem with mega-pixel cameras - that of the high network bandwidth requirements for such devices. HIGHWIRE provides fully transparent 100BaseT network performance, so that any network devices can be connected at either end.


BENEFITS of the solution:
  • Uses legacy cabling - cuts installation costs
  • Supports multiple IP cameras
  • Supports MEGA-PIXEL cameras
  • Supports any network device -fully transparent 100BaseT Ethernet
  • Simple to install- no IP address or other setup required
  • Full-speed over 300m cable (900ft)
  • Compact - fits inside CCTV camera housings
  • Low power - uses camera supply
  • Rack-mount option for control room end
  • Solves network traffic problem for MEGA-PIXEL cameras
