Sony's MP Coax Hybrid Cameras Examined

Author: Ethan Ace, Published on Sep 25, 2011

Like the idea of plugging in coaxial cable to an IP camera and getting MP video? This is Sony's new pitch. At ASIS 2011, Sony announced specific hybrid coax/Ethernet camera models, using a technology they call SLOC, or Security Link Over Coax, allowing the reuse of coaxial cable with their IP cameras. In this note, we review the models, feature sets, pricing and competitive positioning versus HDcctv and Ethernet over Coax adapters.

For background on the underlying technology, review our SLOC update.
