Wireless digital transmission for CCTV cameras

Wireless digital transmission means placing the signal (video, audio, data) in electromagnetic wave using an OFDM modulation (Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiplexing). It works on the basis of simultaneous transmission of multiple signals on orthogonal carrier frequency. This helps in effective use of the radio spectrum and increasing the data transmission rate. Instead of a single high-speed data, it transmits a lot of slower streams at different wavelengths - subcarriers (more in the article about wireless technology). This technology is used in CCTV surveillance systems, industrial television channels and Internet access technology ADSL and DVB-T.


The advantages of digital transmission in the CCTV systems

Digital systems, compared with analogue systems are characterized by much higher resistance to external interference and the ability to transmit a lot more information in an instant. This makes it perfectly fulfill their role in wireless security camera systems, deployed in production or assembly halls, and other places where there are significant electromagnetic interference.

Wireless CCTV system for signal transmission from IP HD cameras, PTZ

Wireless transmission for IP Cameras

For some time analogue systems are being replaced by systems based on digital IP camera. This solution allows you to send the image in a much better quality (HD). However, the picture even with the best security camera may lose its high quality, if the other system components will not be able to process it properly.


The solution is our CDS-5IP designed to transmit a signal from IP cameras, providing the possibility of wireless video and sound transmission in HD, as well as digital  PTZ IP camera control (PTZ - Pan Tilt Zoom). The transmission is performed at a frequency of 5 GHz 1W (30 dBi). It is designed to operate with cameras with resolutions up to 5 megapixels. It has an integrated MIMO antenna, which allows to transmit the signal up to 2 km. The device has two RP-SMA connectors to which you can connect the antenna to increase range up to 5 km.


IP CCTV system using CDS-5IP

  • Stable, bidirectional transmission in HD.
  • Two inputs for direct connection of two IP cameras.
  • The built-in dual antenna MIMO (Multiple Input Multiple Output).
  • The ability to extend the range up to 5 km / 23 Mb / s.
  • Up to 32 modules broadcast on one system.
  • The device acts as a wireless video transmitter and receiver (operation mode selected by the user).
  • You can use remote security camera

CDS-5IP – application example

Wireless CCTV monitoring system  CDS-5IP can be used even in very complex security systems. Below is an example of one of them.

In high building No. 1 there is a monitoring center for residential buildings using the CDS-5IP devices for video transmission.
The signal from cameras in the office building 1A The signal from cameras in the office building 1 .

The image from multi-level parking 2A, shopping center 2B, health center clinics 2C and 2D, can not be sent directly to the center of the observation 1. because of the obstacle - a tall building number 2, which completely blocks radio signals from the transmitters.

The radio receiver CDS-5IP Rx with omnidirectional antenna located on the building 2 receives signals from the transmitting devices in locations 2A, 2B , 2C and 2D. Then, the signal from the RX is wire hooked to a transmitter Tx, from which information is transmitted directly to the receiver Rx 1 on the building.

The signal from the pitch 3A, sports hall 3B and parking 3C is transmitted via radio transmitters Tx to receiver Rx office 3, the signal wired to the next transmitter is sent to a receiver located at the control center.
