rtrafford,

General comment: Unlike analog NTSC / PAL video which is supplied to an Axiom Pro or Axiom XL MFDs, analog NTSC / PAL video which is supplied to the analog NTSC/PAL video port(s) of an a/c/e/eS/gS Series MFD will not be encoded by the MFD for use by the system's other MFDs. Should the system feature video sources such as deck/engine room/backup cameras supporting analog NTSC video output or a thermal camera featuring a NTSC video output and should it be desired that video from these devices be available to more than one MFD within the system a/c/e/eS/gS-Series MFDs then one of the following options would need to be employed to supply video from these devices to the system's MFDs:

a) connect the NTSC video output of each analog NTSC camera and thermal camera to a video encoder (ex. AXIS M7011, etc.), which in turn will be connected to a network switch or available Ethernet Network (RayNet). The benefit of this method is that it will typically require the least amount of additional hardware and wiring.

b) Install a quality amplified analog video splitter(s) (recommend consulting a company specializing in video amplification and splitting) and then connect the amplifier/splitter to the analog NTSC/PAL video input port of each MFD on which you desire to view such video.

Q1. would the auxiliary Video-In port for BNC on the unit permit that signal to then be shared to the other stations via the "Camera 2" selector in the settings?
A1. Negative. See the general comment above.

Q2. Or would it be better to deliver that camera signal to one of the slave stations using the port on its power cable?
A2. If electing to use a MFD's analog NTSC/PAL video input ports, either port may be used. However, as indicated in the general comment above, analog NTSC / PAL video which is supplied to the analog NTSC/PAL video port(s) of a gS Series MFD will not be encoded by the MFD for use by the system's other MFDs.
