Essential Info

The Calrad Electronics HDTV Balun System is designed to transmit Component video (Y,Pb,Pr) over a single Cat5/5e cable over long distances. This device Supports 480i/p, 720p and 1080i resolutions. It has Bi-directional signal design and passive design with no power required with built in cable distance equalizer circuit. The device includes a single RJ-45 Jack, 3 x Gold RCA Jacks and a sturdy white plastic designer style enclosure. The system includes wallplate and mounting hardware.

The 28-202D allows an audio device such as a DVD 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 the Channel Vision Baluns and a run of CAT5 or Cat5e cable the problem can be solved inexpensively and without signal loss and the introduction of noise. In addition, 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.
