Hi , i have room 220i lifesize camera. I need one LS camera cable basically it is connected Camera to Main Device. Please see the attachment file. What is the cost of cable. How can i take it.
You either use an HDMI/DVI cable to connect the camera to the codec, or a (Lifesize) Firewire cable, you can't buy a cable with different ends.
The Room 220i (do you have this codec?) has a DVI connector for the camera, so you can use a DVI - HDMI cable to connect the two, but you'll then need to power the camera separately.
Hi Rich DeBrino,
Please can you send cable picture fro LS camera to Device. Actually what type of cable i confused.
The camera in the photo cannot be used with the camera input of the codec in the photo. The camera has an HDMI output and can be connected to either one of the two DVI-D inputs of the Room 220I. The input in the photo is for the older firewire (IEEE 1394) camera that was used on the original Lifesize Room and 4X camera. The standard cable length was 25 feet and there was an optional 50 foot version. The firewire protocol is not used, just the physical cable.
Ok- the picture (camera end) appears to be from an older 4x Lifesize camera- before the Lifesize cameras went to HDMI and power. These are only compatible (as in able to be used) with the older Lifesize systems (200 series or older) as shown in this image.
This means that you cannot use that camera on anything except this older series system as it gets power and video and control through that special cable.
If you are just looking to get a longer cable for this camera to a 200 series, Lifesize used to sell a longer one but I suspect it may no longer be available. It was known as the "Lifesize camera firewire cable" and you could order up to a 50' version.
I think you have the pics the wrong way around, the HDMI is the camera output, and the Firewire shown is on the codec, hence the 'camera only' warning.
Well, I admit I may be mistaken Pete, as the 220i does have that specific camera input on it. (see below)
If he truly has the camera with only the "firewire" port on the back then my statement is correct.
If, however, he has the newer camera with an HDMI and power on the back then he can use a standard HDMI cable (up to about 10 meters without a specific type of extender as I am sure you also know) and then flip it at the edge to DVI to plug it into the codec.
I may have reacted a little too quickly when seeing the old "firewire" connection, brought back a lot of old memories, and if I am mistaken then I stand corrected.
If I had to identify the camera in a line up my money would be on a 10X which is HDMI only and would not be able to be used with the shown firewire camera input of the codec (but could be used on any of the DVI inputs). The original 4X camera was firewire only and an HDMI output was added later on for the 220 series.
