I've not run into this, nor any power or image problems, that I might think were due to surges. What sorts of problems, other than a dead camera, would point toward a need for surge protection?
I'm not saying it doesn't happen. It would just be nice not to be shooting in the dark if some problem arises.
Well, electrical code in a lot of places for one thing. Most low voltage contractors don't follow it however because it is rarely inspected.
The way I've always interpreted it, any low voltage cable that enters / leaves a building should be protected.
It is also best practice as recommended by BICSI and IEEE.
