How-to Display Video from Multiple Security Cameras on One TV

In today’s security-conscious world, monitoring multiple areas simultaneously is not just a convenience—it’s a necessity. This guide provides a step-by-step process to seamlessly integrate live video from various security cameras onto a single TV screen. Whether you’re overseeing a commercial property or fortifying your home, our method ensures you won’t miss a thing. Plus, we’ll show you how to extend your setup for larger spaces and even incorporate recording capabilities.

Simplifying the Setup: The Role of CCTV Video Multiplexers

A CCTV video multiplexer is the linchpin in this setup, allowing you to connect multiple analog and HD-over-Coax security cameras (AHD, HD-TVI, HDCVI formats supported) into one cohesive system. Here’s a breakdown of the process:

  • Connect Cameras: Use RG59 Siamese coax cable to link each camera to the multiplexer. This cable type conveniently carries both power and video signals.
  • Multiplexer Outputs: The multiplexer offers HDMI and VGA outputs to connect to your TV or monitor.
  • Screen Layouts: Choose from various display layouts using the multiplexer’s wireless remote or front panel buttons.

Overcoming Distance: HDMI over CAT6 Solutions

When your TV is not in close proximity to the multiplexer, HDMI over CAT6 comes to the rescue:

  1. Connect Multiplexer to Transmitter: Use an HDMI cable to link the multiplexer’s output to the HDMI over CAT6 transmitter.
  2. Set Up Infrared Control: Attach the infrared transmitter cable to the multiplexer and position it to face the receiver.
  3. Run CAT6 Cable: Connect the transmitter and receiver with CAT6 cable, allowing for extended reach without signal degradation.
  4. Final Connections: Link the HDMI receiver to your TV and set up the infrared receiver to maintain remote control functionality over the multiplexer.

Recording Integration: Multiplexers and DVRs

To record as well as display your camera feeds, consider these options:

  • Use a Video Splitter: Share the video signal between a multiplexer and DVR using a CCTV video splitter.
  • Spot Monitor Functionality: Some DVRs have built-in display functions, potentially eliminating the need for a separate multiplexer.
  • Multiple Displays: For setups requiring several independently controlled monitors, video splitters facilitate the use of multiple multiplexers and/or DVRs.
