CCTV Baluns

Video baluns allow RG59 coax cable to be replaced by category 5
twisted pair wire in CCTV camera installations.

Therefore when using CAT5 cables for your CCTV surveillance system you will require the use of a balun. This device turns the unbalanced signal mode carried down the CAT5 cable in to a balanced signal.

Many users prefer the implementation of CAT5 cable and baluns because they offer a much more reliable signal and better image quality over long cable runs over the more traditional coaxial type cables. 

Transmission over CAT5 using a CCTV balun offers better performance on long cable runs where a standard RG59 cable will lose signal. Baluns are very easy to install and will help improve the quality of your video signal on cable runs of 100m to 1KM depending on the balun you purchase. CCTV Baluns are capable of transmitting signals from multiple security cameras down one single cable thus simplifying CCTV installations.
