Network Camera Peripherals Microphone


PRODUCT CATEGORY: Network Camera Peripherals


TECH TIP SUBJECT: POE Powered Microphone Application

A customer submitted an application spec to Hanwha requiring the use of an outdoor active microphone able to be powered by the CAT5/6 cable connected to the camera. (e.g. a separate microphone power supply was not an option)

There are 3rd party products that can be used to meet this requirement. While Hanwha does not, as a matter of policy, endorse 3rd party products as Hanwha has no control over the design/production process below is an example of such a product that has been tested here in our NJ offices.
