Essential Info

The Niles Audio C5-SVWM Wall Mount S-Video Balun is a stand-alone device that transforms a single S-Video channel to and from CAT-5 twisted pair cabling. It has two sets of simple connections. The first is an S-Video connector for the S-Video signal. The second is a shielded CAT-5 connector for the CAT-5 twisted pair connection. The circuitry is passive so there is no need for a power supply.

The C5-SVWM allows an S-Video device such as a VCR or satellite receiver to be located an extended distance from the system it is to be connected to. Doing so with conventional video cabling is both expensive and prone to signal degradation. By using a pair of these devices and a run of CAT-5 the problem can be solved inexpensively and without signal loss and the introduction of noise. Additionally, in today’s retrofit market an installer cannot always successfully run a wire from point A to point B. There exists however an abundance of twisted pair cabling in many homes. By using a pair of these devices with an existing wire an installer may be able to complete a job that he otherwise could not.
