Long Distance IP Camera - Fiber + Media Converter?

This just popped into my inbox at 1631 this afternoon 7/24.

"Ross, attached are the construction drawings we have approved to go out to bid for potentially a new drive out of MWDC to 104th. Please work on a plan for your security camera’s and a proposal will be needed and at least 2 different contractors. We have 8 - 35’ poles in the budget along the drive for site lighting. If we could have your proposal’s back in 2 weeks, by August 9, that would be great."

I am happy to be included BEFORE the road is done being built, but it would be nice to have more than two weeks…...

Anyway this will be my first long distance outside IP camera. Our corporate standard is AXIS Q1604-E for outdoor cameras mounted to the building and I think it would work well for this too so I plan to stick with that. I am thinking fiber to the pole, then a media convertor that is PoE enabled, into a surge protector and then up to the camera? However in a recent thread I seem to recall many folks saying convertors were not the way to go?

Wondering if this is the set up you would suggest to me if you were coming in as the integrator or should I expect something else?
