  • What's Included
  • 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 a balun 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 pulling new cable through your walls in order to send these signals from room to room. These Stereo S-Video Baluns for Cat. 5 Cable are designed to connect a DVD player or VCR to a remote television or plasma screen with an audio receiver, eliminating 75-ohm coaxial cable and sending video and audio signals up to 1000 feet. The Stereo S-Video Baluns for Cat. 5 Cable are sold in pairs.

    Connection to the balun is easy. Insert the video cable into the S-video connector and the audio cables into the RCA connectors. Use a second balun to connect to the S-video and RCA connectors of the destination equipment on the other end. Terminate your Cat.5 with a standard RJ45 plug like the EZ RJ45 Connectors.

    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 Stereo S-Video Baluns, a wide variety of audio and video baluns is available and sold separately.

    Review of 7829ss2

    I have used this product on several installations. Product works great.. I would recomend an amp for runs longer than 40 feet. I use Celabs svideo amps, and the use of sheilded cat5e for all instalaltions.. just easier to ensure a clean picture.
    product is very reliable except one unit had 2 wires broken off of board inside unit. i just soldered them back on as strain relief is not that great inside the unit. svideo cable supplied-attached can be pulled out of unit.. be careful of strain put onto this connector.

    Does just what it claims to do. I've connected my Plasma screen TV to my computer halfway across my house using a single Cat5 cable and now I watch Amazon Unbox videos on the bigscreen TV. Awesome!

    I do not recommend this as a 'serious option' for transmitting SVID via CAT5. Very poor quality!
