So I've been tasked with spear heading a committee to seek out, purchase, and have installed live streaming system in our church. We are looking at a 4 PTZ camera system. These matter of fact (https://ptzoptics.com/sdi/#video) with the 20x zoom. The vendor says we would need to run an ethernet cable and an SDI cable to each camera back to the A/V booth to where we would have the mixer, software, etc. My question is if these cameras have PoE would we need the SDI cable ran or wouldn't the ethernet provide power AND control for the PTZ functionality along with transmitting the system back to the booth.
