I suppose this may be kind of outdated but the brand of the camera catched my attention as we had a similar model except it used RJ45 and web access. Your model seem to provide a direct video signal (no usb/ no ethernet).

I just wonder how gstreamer (used un gscam node) gets the video signal out of your camera, are you using a video acquisition card ? Maybe the problem comes from the video card driver ? Can you get vlc to display the image (also uses v4l and /dev/video etc...)
