It's a shame more wasn't revealed. You find folk try this only to discover the camcorders auto shutoff and blow the would be CCTV design out of the water.
OK. With that out of the way and keeping in mind I've been in the design world of CCTV for over a decade (I won't bore you with how long) this is not cheap to do. The old standard def stuff is much cheaper and easy to find but you have stepped into HD which currently is running about 100x the costs. Are you sure you can afford this?
I'm trying to hook up two new HD camcorders (mini-HDMI outputs), a regular f-connector cable TV signal, and possibly a network camera (thru a PC?) to a single HDTV. I could really use some input on what type of switch is needed. We also want to view all feeds at once (in a quad-view type setting). I've seen some switches out there with multi-view capabilities but they are either way too expensive or only have bnc type connectors, which I don't believe are HD.
We'd like to keep these signal as Hi-Def as possible (The TV is only 720p but we may upgrade that if needed...)
Also, on related topic - The two camcorders need to run about 100' and 50' respectively. I currently have on order two long HDMI cables, several short ones, two HDMI signal boosters, and various adapter fittings... But I'm still at a loss on how to get what I'm after... I'll try to post a pdf diagram of what I need if I can figure that out...
Is this the right forum for this feed?
Please help... Thanks!
