It's really not much more than a jack in a jacket.
And you are correct, Terry. This is one of those issues where people are blowing it way out of proportion. It's like the mini-XLR deal... Cables are easy to make, just be sure you have the right connectors or hire the people who will have the right ones and will know what they're doing. Any good on-set sparky or competent cable/data tech will be able to handle all this when the time comes. Once again, like the mini-XLR deal with the RED One, I always found it humorous that mini-XLRs are technically standard, they are present on most audio recording gear from companies like Sound Devices, etc.. They are readily available, easy to make... And yet people stress out about it and there are sound guys who can't deal with them.. WTF?
The brains / modules with this ethernet connection probably include the proper LEMO to RJ-45 adapter. And having an extra, and/or the parts to make them, within your kit -- you know, in that box with all your other little spare parts, is probably a good idea.
It may not be a LEMO connector, there are some other industrial flavors of Ethernet connectors out there. Could be one of those, but so far I've only seen renders of the port.
Don't stress over rugged milspec data connections.
You will stress if they were standard RJ jacks that break easily.
Cool, I don't know why but I thought it would be a much bigger module than this. This one will stay on my camera all the time...
How much power does it draw ?
this is intense! i've been thinking of this possibility for quite a while now! super amazing you guys!
Is the H264 stream multicast? I'm thinking this would be ideal for live broadcasts to our casino digital signage system....being able to stream directly from the Epic camera to 100 screens property wide would be very nice!
