Run Video or Video + Data (PTZ Cameras) Over Normal Ethernet
Run video wires up to 1500 ft using our video baluns. These video baluns convert normal CAT5 or CAT6 wire to a 75 OHM impedance for proper video transmission. Baluns connect to camera and VCR/TV/DVR. The PTZ baluns can also run data.
Use Cat 5 Cable for your Hard Wired Camera
If you are installing a hard wired hidden camera such as an exit sign or emergency light CAT5 my save you money or allow for a much cleaner install for long distances.
Because Cat 5 cable has 4 pairs of wire, you could use 4 video baluns on each end of it and run 4 video signals through one Cat 5 cable. If you are using the PTZ baluns, they run one camera per CAT 5 cable.
100% Passive - No Power Required for Baluns
Baluns are passive and require no power. Video baluns have 2 screw-down terminals to connect wire to, and a male BNC jack to connect to camera or DVR. The PTZ baluns have a CAT 5 jack on each end - not screw down terminals.
Note: Baluns are sold in pairs. Each unit ordered is 2 baluns.
