The HDCV-3-T is an HD-TVI to HDMI video converter that is used to display 720p and 1080p HD video from TVI security cameras on a TV monitor. This video converter accepts input from a TVI camera input and sends the video to the HDMI output. Multiple HDCV-3-T converters can be used as a video splitter to connect a TVI camera to multiple HDMI monitors. This is done using the BNC loop output which allows you to send the native HD-TVI video signal to another device, such as a surveillance DVR or second converter.
This converter is typically used to connect an TVI security camera to an HDMI monitor to display a live high definition video feed. Click here to see how this device can be used to display live surveillance video at a retail store entrance.

This is how installers connect the HDCV-3-T.
- An HD-TVI security camera is connected to the BNC video input using coax cable that is compatible with HD-TVI cameras.
- The HDMI output is connected to a TV monitor using an HDMI cable.
- The 12V DC power supply is connected to the device and a power source.
- The LED lights will indicate the status.
- Optional: the BNC video output can be connected to an HD-TVI compatible DVR or to a second HDCV-3-T converter. This will enable live video display on an additional monitor.
The other side of the device is where the included power supply is connected. The LED light labeled "P" indicates if the device is powered on / off. The "I" LED let users know if the device is functioning properly. Flashing is a normal status. Off is not normal.
How to Connect HD-TVI Camera to HDMI Monitor
The above wiring diagram shows how to connect an HD-TVI CCTV camera to an HDMI monitor and surveillance DVR. Because many TVI DVRs do not have loop outputs (like traditional CCTV DVRs do), the BNC loop output of the HDVC-3-T is used to share the TVI video signal between 2 devices. In this diagram, we share video from a single TVI security camera with an HD TV and a hybrid CCTV / HD surveillance DVR.
Important Note: Using the loop output is optional. Some customers only want to view their camera live on a TV and DO NOT require recording from a DVR. In this case, installers will only use the HDMI output to connect the HD-TVI camera to a TV.
The above diagram shows how a HD-TVI-BL180 security camera can be connected to two high definition TVs using two HDCV-3-T converters that are linked together using an RG59 jumper cable. Here is how it works.
- The HD-TVI camera is connected to the HDVC-3-T video converter using RG59 coax cable. You can use this premade Siamese cables for HD security cameras if you want to power the camera from a source near the first converter. Or if you are powering the camera at the location where the camera is installed, you can use these RG59 jumper cables.
- The video converter has a BNC loop output which lets you connect the video to a second device using a coax jumper cable. In this installation, we connect it to a second video converter using a premade RG59 jumper / patch cable. A 3rd video converter could be connected to the 2nd one this same way if an additional monitor was needed. You can connect as many monitors as you need by adding additional HDVC-3-T video converters.
- Last, use an HDMI cable to connect the HDMI output of each video converter to a TV / monitor.
The HDCV-3-T can be used by retail stores to display a live surveillance video feed at the store entrance. This type of installation is very typically used by major retail chains. It creates a theft deterrence and helps customers feel safe knowing that the store uses security cameras.
