I'm confused about powering the camera over POE. If I purchase a TP-Link 5 Gigabit PoE Switch 4 Port PoE 56 W as Donald did do I still need the GAF-12v12w splitter from POE Texas ? Normally when we do cameras we just use a POE GIG Switch to supply the power
If you have one of the USB models you would need a PoE splitter because the USB models do not support PoE.
It looks like PoE Texas has the specific PTZOptics model back in stock, https://shop.poetexas.com/products/gaf-ptzoptics .
If you have one of the SDI or NDI models you can power those cameras directly through the PoE switch without any sort of splitter.
Thank you that really helps --I was confused cause with normal IP cameras you can just go to POE switch.
