Not all coax connections are the same. It may be running though a video distribution amp. The coax runs themselves may be set up for RF, not baseband video. In fact I'd same most runs in the building are setup for RF and only a few are for video.

I've found that many of these connections are running Daisy Chained from one room to another which will impact what you're trying to do, as Russel also mentioned, it could be direct from an amp to certain places and some are daisy chained, but no building I've worked with has every really been setup the same way.

I can get the HDMI to work perfectly, but my SDI connection doesn't work at all. I tried two different bridges to no avail. I'm trying to push the video feed from the Streaming Bridge to the RS and primary rooms, as well as cultural hall projectors. Those are all coax or RCA connections. If I can get the building to recognize the program video from my ATEM Mini Pro, we'll be golden.
If you are feeding your video into an analog video distribution system, you will need to convert the SDI output to analog. We use one of these.

I don't have experience with the setup you are describing but just off the top of my head, I would suggest a different approach that may be easier. The SDI solution is a tried and proven technology, the follow on the the SDI solution is the NDI which is basically the same thing but over ethernet (Network). So rather than trying to use old coax, if you ethernet in your locations, I would just to that. You can even use an iphone running NDI as a feed to broadcast. I have used 3 of these in the front of the chapel to provide multiple camera angles. Wirecast and I believe OBS will accept the NDI connections.

You are welcome to contact me directly to discuss.
