This is not a networking question, but a "Can I use the Net3 lines from the catwalk to the arena floor?" question.
My workspace is an arena that does not have an open network for additional equipment. The only dry-lines on the catwalk are single mode fiber lines which fall under the jurisdiction of the video contractor. The lighting network resides on the catwalk.
I need spy cam, and I am personally paying for the solution.
I'm considering a Marshall CV503 with MuxLab 500701 SDI to Cat5e converters and utilizing the Net3 network switches or a Net3 port to transfer the video signal down to my workstations on the arena floor.
I need a low-latency and inexpensive solution that won't corrupt the lighting system.
I appreciate ideas for solving this problem which doesn't include the video department as they are a completely separate entity. Prior to 2018, the facility purchased an IP camera which only works on Windows machines with Microsoft Explorer. This camera is now unresponsive.
