Live video for night vision goggles? Answered

Hi, I want to get live video streaming from this camera (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00WSJIQH0?psc=1&redirect;=true&ref;_=ox_sc_act_title_3∣=AOEPEY6PZCP7F) to stream to this screen (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0045IIZKU?psc=1&redirect;=true&ref;_=ox_sc_act_title_2∣=A1DBCKGXGABBQV) What do I need to connect them? the connecting cables on the two look to be the same so they won't connect. I would prefer to keep this all wired together (no tx/rx) Also, I don't see power inputs on either, what would I need to power them. I will use ir leds for illumination but that's all figured out (night vision goggles using something similar to fpv goggles with a camera on the front)

Night Vision Camera: Do I need a Visible Light Filter?

I have a Kodak C533 Digital Camera that I want to turn into my "test" Night Vision device, and I am wondering when I take out the IR filter, is it really necessary to put in a film negative to filter the visible light? I just did a project on Infrared Light so I know all about the electromagnetic spectrum and why we can't see it, so I don't need help there. I also don't want to use it to take pictures or videos, just so I can use the LCD screen. Will it be too bright with all of the light coming through? I obviously won't want to use the night vision outside, just so I could easily take it from the dark into the light again.
