- Camera (EVI-D70 in chapel, under the "soffit" area) represented by the red box below:
- Control/Video Transmission
We will be using a Knoll UR-SVID and a US-SVID to send the S-Video signal from the camera to the Stake Clerks Office and then on to the library. This will also allow us to control the camera with the IR remote control.
I realize that serial control is better than IR control, but IR control has worked well for the past few conferences, it fits in the budget and if need be, we have an extra CAT6 cable running to each location so that if we want to switch to another system in the future, the cables are in place.
- Video distribution:
We will have a 1x4 S-Video distribution amplifier in the stake clerks office to split the S-Video signal for the various places it needs to go
We will have a computer and the webcast software. We were looking at buying the box, but decided that the extra features and upgradeability of the software were worth the added complications that a computer entails
We have 3 CAT6 cables that run from the camera to the stake clerks office where we will control the camera (1 for power, 1 for video and a spare) and then 2 more CAT6 cables that run to the Library where they will feed the building CCTV system (1 video, 1 spare).
- Camera Mounting:
FM is working on a bracket (similar to: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/684181-REG but longer) and a way to fasten it to the wall when in use (the camera will come down between uses)
When I talked to FM about running wires, they offered to punch all of the holes and put in 1" PVC sleeves through all the walls/floors we needed to go through. That was done last week and yesterday we pulled the CAT6 cable (1084 feet of it). I need to get pictures of the finished boxes, but it went smoothly. The hardest part of the pull was fitting 2 CAT6 cables and a CAT5e cable down the 1/2" conduit into the satellite rack in the library.
When we get everything installed, I will take some pictures and post them on here, but here is a slightly dated version of our general wiring layout:
