Power over Coaxial (PoC) means that power for the camera is supplied by the DVR via coaxial video cable (RG59 or similar),removing the need for separate cables and power supplies which would otherwise be needed to power your cameras..
PoC cameras can also work on standard, non PoC recorders
- PoC cameras can also be powered locally via a separate power supply allowing them to be used on a non PoC TVI DVR
- All non PoC cameras can work on a PoC capable DVR as the camera is powered via a separate power supply and PoC will only transmit when requested to by a compatible camera
- PoC transmission must be used through RG59 coaxial or similar cable, it will not pass through CAT5/6 or baluns
