Broadband (CATV) over Cat5 Cable converter, Male F connector on a pigtail to RJ45 jack, using pins 4 & 5


Broadband video (CATV) over UTP, once thought to be impractical (or impossible), is now commonplace, due to the use of the PV880 Series of Broadband Video Baluns from ETS. Commercial and professional grade video can be transmitted over Category 5 and better UTP.
Distance is a function of frequency and signal level. Using Category 5 or better cable, all channels up to 26, at a drive level of not more than 36dBmV will accommodate 100 meters. The usable distance is reduced at higher channels, reaching 50 meters at channel 78.
Off air channel 26 is 542 to 548 MHz. CATV allows packing channels into unused on-air frequencies.

• Transport Broadband video signals over structured wiring (UTP)*
• Up to 77 channels (550 MHz) on CATV spectrum
• Low cost solution for moves, adds and changes by reducing costs of cable and associated labor of rewiring.
• Sturdy compact plastic case
• Made in USA. 100% QA.
• Media Retrieval Systems
• Schools
• Churches
• Production Monitoring
• Security and Surveillance
• Displays
• “Smart” Houses
• Teleconferencing
