Video baluns are an excellent choice for long cable runs. Standard coaxial cable is usually the best medium for transmitting video, but video over those runs is limited to about 600 feet before the quality degrades. CCTV video baluns allow signal to travel over Cat5E cable for several thousand feet. There are 2 types of CCTV baluns, passive video baluns and active video baluns. A passive video balun can send video up to 1,000 - 1,200 Ft. away and an active video balun can extend that range to 4,000 feet, but only with external DC power.
