High-Quality Balun allows you to connect any camera or DVR over CAT5 Ethernet cable.
You can use one balun on each end of your CAT5 cable to allow your wire run up to about 1,100 Feet to transmit your video signal from your surveillance camera.
This allows you to use a less expensive twisted pair wire instead of coax/siamese cable for your security cameras and surveillance systems.
Video transmission via UTP CAT5 cable
10-20% wire costs saved.
Full-motion CCTV Video at distances up to 1,100ft (300m).
Outstanding interference rejection and transient protection
Male BNC allows connection directly to the camera or DVR
These work great! This is a great way to convert your BNC to a CAT5 quality UTP cable. 1) I think the UTP is easier to work with than regular video cable, and 2) UTP wire is definitely cheaper than RG59 coaxial video cable for example. The balun works not only as a good cable converter but helps to filter out any interference you might otherwise catch too.
I work as an IT person for a fairly big company. We have a training room with an overhead LCD projector. Recently, my supervisor wanted to run a monitor line to the projector located in the center of the room, about 15 feet in the air. Since the area was already pre-wired with CAT5 I decided to give a couple of these baluns a try. They work great! (You should have seen the look on his face when it only took me a few minutes to plug one into the DVR output and the other to the projector!)
We recently moved our retail store to a larger facility that was once used as a telemarketing business office. Cat 5 Ethernet cable is all over for each of the previous telemarketer's computers. When I installed our new system, all we did was attach these Baluns and we didn't have to run cable to any of our 8 cameras. Thanks to your on-line support--I never new these things existed until they suggested them.
