I have a client that wants to run a wireless WiFi security camera so that the image can be viewed from any web browser anywhere in the world. No problem.
But he also wants to be able to put that same image onto the cable TV wires in the house using a ChannelPlus box so they can view the camera image from any TV by switching to a preassigned channel.
The question I have is this: How do I convert the signal from the WiFi camera into a video signal suitable for input to the ChannelPlus box?
The only way I can think of is to get an old beater computer, have it start up in web browser kiosk mode (full screen) and automaticlaly browse to the camera's web page, and install a TV video out card that feeds the WiFi camera's full-screen web page into the ChannelPlus box with RCA jacks.
Are there any dedicated single devices that could replace the beater PC in this application?
o He wants to use WiFi, so an analog wired or wireless camera is out of the question,
o The camera will go in a location that can only be wired to AC power, so no video wiring,
o We have a WiFi repeater (one of many in the huge multi-story house) located near the target location.
