Polycom uses the mini-HDCI connections on cables to differentiate between digital cameras and analog cameras. The HDCI to HDCI cables are for the analog cameras like the EagleEye III and EagleEye View. The mini-HDCI to HDCI are for digital cameras like the EagleEye IV and the EagleEye Acoustic.
Since there is not an indication of the use case for the cable it is hard to advice as to a solution. I have attached an accessories data sheet for the RealPresence Group Series that has the available cables for other accessories to extend the digital cameras, like the DBA (Digital Breakout Adapter) and the EagleEye Digital Extender.
If I use these two adapter cables;
Polycom Digital Breakout Adapter 7200-68518-125
Polycom Codec Digital Breakout Cable - 7200-68524-125
with a 50 foor active HDMI cable and RS-232 cable will I be able to extend the camera 50 feet just as I would if I was using a Polycom 2215-64200-001 EagleEye IV Digital Extender?
The DBA allows the HDCI digital interface to be broken out into HDMI and RS-232, and it works in that application. It would not be possible to state if using a sepcific cable with the DBA works or not, it would be up to the user and/or the integrator to verify the operation in each applicaiton.
The DBA for the camera does come with the AC adapter that will need to be used to power the camera.
Does anyone projected this situation (attached) to use two cameras EEIV on a Group Codec 500 for example, using 2xDBA-Camera,1xDBA-Codec, HDMI MAtrix and Control Processor?
Is that possible to work?
Did your solution works?
Can you control the cameras from the processor using RS232?
