  1. Hi there, I am looking for a way to use an old CCTV Camera which I have laying around some time now. It is a (according to the model sticker) SANTEC VTC-621P (some images her: https://imgur.com/a/gjU1D). I googled but was not able to find any resources. I was able to use the camera with a BNC S-Video Video to VGA Converter on a normal Monitor. So the camera works perfect and gives a nice image! I can use the buttons on the side of the device to adjust the focus and so on. But what I would like to do is to convert the video signal to use it in my ZoneMinder setup. I was thinking of using a raspberry Pi or similar to convert the signal ... is there ay possible way to use the camera in a "modern" setup? any help/idea would be appreciated ... thanks and regars krijeck

    hi, thanks for that fast reply! the manufacture date of the camera is 2004! actually I got this camera without any cables - I got it to work with a 12V power adapter and the mentioned BNC to VGA Converter on a monitor. to be honest it was not my primary idea to use it as a security camera. But as the quality of the images was quite usable and i liked the idea of reusing the good old hardware I thought to go deeper into the surveillance/security thing. So I would like to be using this as security now. according the commands you mentioned ... as said I have no cables to the camera - how could i use this as well? just to explore this CCTV topic a little deeper without spending millions - which DVR would you recommend? I found pretty cheap devices on amazon. Just to connect the camera via BNC - no chance of controlling it. I have a small house - so no more than 4 channels should be sufficient ... I tried (not too much for now - just the last days) zoneminder - is there a chance to connect a DVR with analog cameras?
