Video Baluns are ideal for use in closed circuit TV (CCTV) installations and enables the transmission of video using ordinary unshielded twisted pair (UTP) wire instead of coaxial cable. Cost effective and much easier for installation. UTP cable is less expensive then coax cable. Our Video Baluns also work over existing UTP cabling, making them perfect for use in nearly any building or across an entire campus.


Cat5 / UTP cables have become increasingly popular in CCTV security installations because they are smaller in size than coaxial cables, making cable density less of a problem. They are also easier to terminate, which speeds installation. Transmits video over point-to-point Unshielded Twisted Pair wire, 24-16AWG (0,5-1,31mm), stranded or solid, Category 2, or better.
Transmit color or monochrome applications up to 1,250 feet. Passive design provides immunity from noise and interference and does not require power supplies.


The purpose of the Video Balun is to allow traditional 75 ohm coax cable to be replaced by Category 5 (or better) twisted pair in the CCTV security and surveillance environment, thereby allowing CCTV camera and monitoring equipment to be deployed more cost-effectively using structured cabling techniques. Video Balun allow video signals to co-exist in the same wire bundle as telephone, datacom, or low-voltage power circuits. This allows the use of a shared or existing cable plant. With built-in transient protection, damaging voltage spike problems are eliminated. Video Baluns work with any analog video equipment that supports NTSC or PAL systems, CCTV cameras, video multiplexers, video switchers and monitors.
