Answer CCTV (closed circuit television) is a television system in which signals are not publicly distributed; cameras are connected to television monitors in a limited area such as a store, an office building, or on a college campus. CCTV is commonly used in surveillance systems.
Answer The CCTV Video Balun allows base-band composite video signals to be transmitted via a single unshielded twisted pair (UTP) cable for more versatile cabling.
CCTV Balun is used in pairs to allow you to eliminate more expensive coaxial cable, including coupling signals from remote video cameras to display systems, video capture, security and surveillance monitoring applications.
The use of existing twisted pair infrastructure such as telephone cable and cat.5 computer networking cables are also available. All our Baluns are 100% test for reliability and durability to guarantee your signal integrity.
Answer For a point-to-point connection, with great quality cable, the maximum distance is 680 meters. But usually, CCTV application means a connection: camera > DVR > monitor. There will be signal loss and the distance cannot be as far as a point-to-point connection. For these type of application, a typical distance is 350m (985ft) to 400m (1312ft)
