  • 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 Balun allows 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-Digital Balun supports 480i/p, 720p and 1080i/p video formats for hi-definition (HDTV) video applications.

    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 this Component Video/Digital Audio Balun, a wide variety of audio and video baluns are available and are sold separately.

    Review of 7805hd

    Plug and play baby, easy as pie. A little more expensive than I would have liked.
