Baseball Stadium Video Feed
I apologize if this is in the wrong section.
I work at a 3000 seat baseball stadium and have a question about a video setup.
I am trying to add a PTZ camera in centerfield to add a 'Centerfield' angle like you see on TV. The press box is behind home plate, and the distance of the RG6 cabling is approximately 600 feet from the where the camera is mounted to the input in the press box.
I ran the RG6 myself, and put in a total of 3 couplers to link cabling (I had a lot of random distances of RG6 so I coupled the them together.
When we plug it into our computer that we use to stream, I am unable to get any video feed. We currently use 1 camcorder and another PTZ camera so we copied all of the settings in our video program for one PTZ camera to the other and we still cannot get a picture.
I want to start trouble shooting, but have no idea how.
My thoughts for no picture are :
- possible distance is too long for RG6?
- I did not attach the coupler connections correctly
I had the idea to try and test the signal coming out of the camera at every coupler point (that would be 150 feet, 350 feet, 400 feet, and then the final BNC connector that plugs into our computer.
I tried to look on Amazon, but could not find what I thought I needed. What would be the best way to troubleshoot this?
Thank you - Jordan.
