Hello, I was hoping someone would be able to suggest a camera for my situation. We have 5 Axis 232D+ cameras installed and connected to a dedicated server. Four of the cameras work flawlessly but the fifth camera needs to connect to the network via an older pair of Bendek LB900 radios that can't carry enough bandwidth for streaming video. I need to find a camera that can just send a still image every minute or so to the server running Axis Camera station. The current hardware does not support QOS and I just can't get the 232D work. The location of the camera is about .75 miles away, outside and is just needed to monitor water level in a lagoon. Any suggestions are welcome, if I can't find a camera we may have to upgrade the radios.
Yes I've decreased the resolution and the image settings all the way. When I do that I get one frame at the camera station and then the connection fails. The problem is that other information coming from level sensors and pump flow meters is eating up most of the bandwidth. It doesn't need ptz. It is starting to look like more capable radios are needed but they are expensive.
