  • Transmit Component Video Over Cat. 5
    Ideal for such devices as DVD players, satellite receivers, plasma displays, projectors, monitors, amplifiers, switchers, and other equipment supporting HDTV component video and/or digital audio, the Component Video/Digital Audio Baluns allow one component video (YPbPr or RGB) signal and one digital audio signal to be transmitted via cost-effective unshielded twisted pair (UTP) cable in a point-to-point configuration. Used in pairs, the Component Video, Digital Audio Baluns support 480i/p, 720p and 1080i/p resolution for hi-definition (HDTV) video applications.

    Transmit Over Longer Distances Than HDMI
    HDMI is a great connection protocol, but it's limited in how far you can transmit - the signal degrades at lengths over about 10'. However, with these baluns and some Cat 5 cable, you can successfully transmit HDTV signals up to 500' without degradation. Now you don't have to worry about poor signals when connecting a projector to your rack system or feeding the plasma screen in the den.

    Advantage of Using Baluns
    Because they contain isolation transformers and utilize twisted cabling, baluns eliminate the ground loops that cause background hum and rolling interference. Baluns also extend transmission distances, passively transmitting audio and video signals up to 2500 feet. In addition to these Component Video/Digital Audio Baluns, numerous audio and video baluns are available and are sold separately.

    This is a good product, however it took some time to resolve a gremlin in the machine. This unit it subject to ground loop issues. I was connecting over a 100 ft Cat5 cable to another room in my house and the image was completely unwatchable green horizontal image distortion. After much trouble shooting, I lifted the ground on my LCD display and the problem was 100% resolved. The manual that comes with this unit has no practical troubleshooting - no mention of ground loop sensitivity - so be prepared to lift the grounds on your equipment for acceptable results. FYI, this same Cat5 cable/run worked fine with VGA baluns with no ground loop issues.

    The unit was quick and easy to install and worked perfectly right out of the box. I am using balun pair to send component video and digital sound output from cable STB on main floor of house to an HDTV located in the basement.

    Great product! perfect picture quality. Wish it could do analag audio, I ran a single coax along with my cat 5 and attached these ends http://www.smarthome.com/7824.html for left audio and the balun for the right side. They're both equal volume.

    Awesome! I hooked the product up (without any adjustments to my CAT-5) and the picture worked perfectly. Simple setup and excellent product.

    The pair of baluns works great to transmit HD over CAT5. No problems in over a months' use. You are limited to mono sound over a single CAT5 but this is not a problem for me since I am sending to an LCD TV using the TVs speakers.

    Works great. Sending HD signal to 720p plasma over fireplace. Used a 'Y' adapter to send the analog audio. Suppose to be digital only, but it works fine.
