Coaxial or Cat5e

Postby JamesMichaelson » Fri Jun 19, 2009 12:14 pm

Hi all,

I am debating on whether to use coaxial cable for a cctv installation or Cat5e with video baluns.

It's 2x 12V CCD cameras, but the signal is one 1V Peak to Peak, SO I can get away with just 1 Cat5e because that's 4 twisted pair, and I can use 2 pairs for video and power each.

See otherwise I have to run uncomfortable coaxail...

Any tips?
