C20 QuickSet Camera Extension Cable

Agile Support
Level 1
Level 1

Hi - Does anyone know if it's possible to extend the length of the camera cable on a QuickSet C20 please?

I'm just wondering if it's possible in a similar way to the MXP solution that used the 3 x 6.5m extender cables plus a power supply.... along with an extended HDMI cable as well perhaps??

Kind Regards,
Richard

I don't know the length, however the PrecisionHD Camera Guide might contain the requirements.  I know HDMI has a maximum length, though I'm not sure if the VISCA cable has one since it's simply power/control.  You could also plug in the camera's independent power supply, then all you have to focus on is control.  The guide also contains the pin-outs you're looking for as well.

Yes it is possible, you can create your own cables to whatever lenght you need.  C20 Admin Guide contains the cable pin-outs you would need, see page 79.

Thanks for the quick response, that's great. So to a maximum length I presume, am I safe to say up to 20m for argument sake?

Thanks again

Thanks again, very much appreciated.

You're welcome, glad to help!  Don't forget to mark your question as answered with replies that helped.

Just found the following on the developer forums, it looks like someone managed to make a ~100ft VISCA cable and it worked fine.  It's daisy changed, but it's the same concept.
