Hey Leonardo,

Yes the hdmi cable for the TV/Monitors are the same for each codec. The SX20 supports the Visca protocol which is why the camera cable is different. I however have connected a regular HDMI cable between the camera and codec without any issues as far as I can see, but always keep in mind to follow the guides and use the recommended cables.

Hello Leonardo

SX 20 and C series use different connections for the cameras, so that is not possible using supplied cable.

Please check this link:

Thank you

Sound Control Technologies (SCT) has a kit specifically designed for  the  SX20 allowing up to 300' of dual CAT5e or CAT6 between camera and   codec.  The kit is inclusve of the Unity connector cables for the SX20   codec and 4XS2 and 2.5x camera.  If you are using a 12x camera just let   them know and they will insure you receive the proper cable set.  The   camera is powered via the codec head-end module, so no need to deploy a   power supply (and 120V) at the camera location.  Also, the kit supports   the Visca control loop at the head-end, so no need to run a cable   between cameras.  Of course the SX20 only supports one camera, so unless   you are integrating a control system and HDMI switcher, multiple   cameras on a single codec applies to C40, C60 and C90 only, which SCT   also has kits for.

www.soundcontrol.net, select RC3 on the left.  This covers the RC3 (up to 130 feet) and the RC3X (up to 300') solutions.
