Item# 500016

Exclusive "S-Video Tranceiver" #500016 allows you to send S-video via CAT5 cable. Please see Application Diagram. We also offer transceivers that allows you to send both S-Video and Stereo Audio over a single CAT5.

Advantages of sending S-Video over CAT5:
- Better Video. With our S-Video Tranceiver you can get inexpensive CAT5 that meets your building's fire code. Almost all S-Video cable is not fire-code rated for sending it inside walls or Through drop-ceilings. We provide you a unique solution for this common problem. You could consider running the s-video cable Through conduit, but if you're going long distances, our s-video trancievers will provide you with a better video signal.
- Less expensive solution than installing two RG6 cables and the related loss of signals due to couplings and adapters.
- Less signal loss. Our S-Video Tranceiver can easily transmit an svideo signal up to 1,000 feet. Although our S-Video cable has been tested upwards of 500 feet, most other s-video cable will have noticeable signal loss even at 25 feet so consider our "S-Video Tranceiver Balun" for the least signal loss solution at any length up to 1000 feet.
- Unique design allows you to connect the S-Video Tranceiver directly to your S-Video equipment. The tranceiver has a male 4-pin Mini DIN s-video plug to connect to the s-video output/input of your equipment.
- Use your building's structured cabling. No need to run conduit when you can use your existing structured cabling of Cat5
- Neater and faster cabling.
- More variety of CAT5 cable to meet your building's code.

  • Will this balun work with IP cameras that have a Cat. 5 output? No, this balun is for s-video only; IP cameras that have an IP output have to be connected to another device, usually a router, that accepts an IP signal. You may be able to decode the IP signal with a set-top box, such as our box at
