How long do you need the run to be?


Using Cat5 and passive baluns you can move a video signal up to 300 metres. Using active baluns that rises to over 1,000 metres. The voltage drop on the supply to the camera is going to be your limitation, obviously to get round the problem power the camera locally.


Make sure you use pure copper Cat5 rather than CCA (copper clad aluminium.


Keep smiling.
