What Kind Of Camera Is This Samsung? SDI, TVI, AHD, IP?

Can you tell what the technology of this Samsung camera is just by looking at the spec sheet? Here are some clues:

  • 1080P
  • Cat 5e
  • Passive 12V POE
  • Built-in UTP TX ???
  • Max cable length 100m solid, 50m stranded
  • Min cable length 60ft. ??? (Fully Detachable cable shown below)
  • Amazon Price price $134
  • Listed under Accessories on Samsung Techwin, part of an all-in-one kit...

Are they being purposely evasive or is it just so low end that it doesn't get a real sheet?

I'm guessing it's SDI based on the SDC in the model number and the 100m limitation, but isn't SDI natively coax? And the POE without IP seems unusual. Plus from what I've read here this is a pretty good price for SDI with 1080P and built-in IR for outdoors, no?

Update:

Samsung has responded:

"The camera is essentially same as HD-SDI camera, but we send the HD-SDI signal over UTP instead of coax.The cost is similar to the HD-SDI. It's not like CVI or TVI at all. We are still sending digital signal over UTP."

Also if the reviewer was using wireshark or equiv., he would would have seen ports that were listening (if there were any), even they weren't "open", or least TCP/IP packets, but he doesn't say he saw anything IP. If it is IP and you hooked it up to a good VMS autodetect program, maybe it would find something...
