  • Many new homes and office buildings already contain structured cabling systems of not only electrical and phone wiring, but also inexpensive Cat.5 twisted pair cable, which is commonly used as a data line. Now you can take maximum advantage of this existing wiring by adding Component Video/Digital Audio Baluns to each end. This small transformer converts audio and video signals from unbalanced to balanced and vice versa, making the necessary impedance adjustments for A/V signal transmission between different wiring systems. This means that you can run your signal over inexpensive Cat.5 wiring, rather than rewiring your home in order to send these signals from room to room. This Component Video/Digital Audio Balun is designed for use with HDTV component video and/or digital audio equipment, sending component video and digital audio transmission up to 1000 feet. The Component Video/Digital Audio Balun comes in a 2-Pack as it is designed to work in pairs. A Coaxial RCA S/PDIF cable is required for digital audio signal transmission and is sold separately.

    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 2,500 feet.
