The boat i work on has a Panasonic CCTV system, one of the cameras was damaged and needed replacing. I found what i thought to be a suitable replacement online however the original was a WV-CW864AE (PAL) and the replacement is a WV-CW864A (NTSC) so when connected it has no control (coax video and control) and the image is black and white.

 

Does anyone here know if i can get a converter to sort this or suggest a replacement camera i could use?

 

TIA

Hi. There is but your talking 100s and are not worth it for a camera

Hi Tom,

The unit is from around 2005 it is a WJ-HD716

Wow my advice is to swap out the recorder

for a number of reasons 

1st proprietary software …… no good for law

2nd cif record only ……. 7fps at 720x340 bad resolution compared to today’s systems

 

what country are you in …. Most law enforcement or courts will allow proprietary software to view footage

 

i would keep your existing cameras and your new one and replace the recorder

Thanks for the advice.

I will look into a new recorder. I guess a newer Panasonic model will be suitable.

We are in France but the boat moves a lot, Europe summers and Caribbean winters. Possibly America next year.

Hi. You have had good experiences with pano but don’t buy now or you will be stuck with many restrictions

Hi then I would look at a hybrid recorder 

it will run your existing cameras and also allow you to go upto 4K analog or IP cameras

not expensive it’s around €200

Will it work with the controller we have? Panasonic WV-CU360CJ

 

or will we need to find a controller that is compatible with the new recorder?

Hi. I know the controller is compatible switchable via dip switches 

switch dips for rj45 data

but you will have to check if your ptz cameras are rj45 compatible 

 

a modern recorder will also allow mouse control as well as controller 

you can also control via a pad if you have a local network onboard
