The MuxLab Component Video & Stereo Analog Audio 2-Pack Balun Kit is a set of two baluns that work together to transmit a component video signal along with a stereo analog audio signal for long distances over a Cat5e/6 cable. The cable is not included. You can carry, for example, a DVD player's video and audio signals from one room to a plasma and speaker system in another. The baluns each connect to their video source by an integrated RCA cable with three male connectors, and to their audio source by an optional RCA cable. In the DVD player example, make sure to connect into the DVD player's stereo audio outputs to carry a stereo audio signal, which is the only kind that these baluns support. An audio signal carries on the fourth twisted pair of a Cat5e/6 cable.
The video carry distance depends on resolution. You can transmit 480i/p resolution 1000 ft, and 720p or 1080i/p 500 ft. Audio carries 3250 ft.
2 x MuxLab 500058 Component Video/Stereo Audio Balun
The MuxLab 500058 Component Video/Stereo Audio Balun allows transmission of one component video (YPbPr or RGB) signal and one stereo audio channel via a single Cat5E/6 UTP (Unshielded Twisted Pair) cable. The balun is used in pairs to transmit component video/stereo audio and supports 480i/p video transmission up to 1000' (305m) and 720p and 1080i/p video transmission up to 500' (152m) via Cat5E/6 cables. For analog stereo audio, the maximum transmission distance is up to 3250' (990m).
The component video/stereo audio balun delivers high-definition resolution and combines RGB and true left/right stereo audio over four twisted pairs for hi-fidelity commercial and residential AV applications that include DVD players, satellite receivers, plasma displays, projectors, monitors, up-converters, amplifiers, switchers, home theater and other equipment supporting HDTV component video and/or analog audio.
The balun features GLC (Ground Loop Coupling) that eliminates ground loop effects and provides hassle-free wiring. Besides using Cat3/5/6 as a cost-effective alternative to coaxial cabling, the balun also makes changes / additions to modular outlet connections faster and easier. The unit has an ABS fire-retardant plastic enclosure and includes a modular shielded RJ4.
