Resolution

Yes, however Pelco recommends you follow RS-422 Specification best practices by either running your single RS-422 twisted-pair to each camera in a Daisy Chain, or - if you have more than 1 separate twisted-pair coming from the camera(s) back to the head end - by using a Code Distribution Unit such as the Pelco CM9760-CDU-T.
