I think you just need a poe injector to sit inline between the cam and your router (or DVR) to provide the power.
If you're gonna have a few of these cams you'll probably want a multi port injector.

The balun is so analogue cameras can use cat5. As has been said a poe injector is what is required for poe ip cameras.

you can use the baluns the opposite way around, short cat cable from back of camera into balun connect that into existing RG59+power and do the same at the other end

think im a bit out of my depth setting this up , ive looked at the injectors and it looks complicated, i used the wired set-up of cameras straight to the dvr and thought getting 1 of these would be simple to connect to the same set up + i could use the zoom and other facilities the big dome camera had to offer for the small price i paid fot it at a car boot sale !
