If a stand alone non electronic system would be of interest look at Murphy Switchgauges .

What are you looking to do exactly? Is your engine currently putting data on your N2K network or are you looking for an adapter to do that? Do you have an MFD already to display the data, or are you looking for something to do that?

I am not aware of any N2K video cameras. NMEA 2000 doesn't have the speed to transmit video. Most MFD's that allow video input use a standard video signal, often with a proprietary connector that needs converted to standard. There are a number of 'marine grade' cameras that output a suitable signal but don't connect to N2K. You'll need to run video wiring.

The preferred way (in my humble opine) is to do what I did for the gauges (referenced above) and have any cameras feed into the same MFD network. This way, information is available anywhere an MFD is located.

I used to be a huge fan of independent displays- with today's technology, I much prefer a single manufacturer system of your choice.

It's too vague of a question with no details. Does the OP have any MFDs? Starting from scratch? Electronic engines? Analog engines?

Just so many options and with no details on what is being attempted, no way to give useful suggestions.
