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.

Casey have you tried playing with the image settings or even dropping the resolution? There are many ways to reduce the image filesize.

If you do need to replace the camera, does it need to be PTZ or will any fixed camera do?

The next step to take would be to get an Axis H.264 camera

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.
