Following the launch of its new HDView CCTV collection which features the latest AHD (Analogue High Definition) technology, ESP, leading security products supplier, reminds installers and wholesalers about the accessories needed to get the very best from this new technology.
The manufacturer has a range of single channel HD Baluns which are designed to facilitate AHD CCTV camera transmission over CAT5 cable. The Baluns are compatible with AHD high definition CCTV cameras, and allow traditional coax cable to be replaced by cat5 and other forms of twisted pair wire in CCTV video camera and surveillance installations. They allow installers to use more cost effective structured cabling techniques to wire security cameras.
Compatible with AHD and analogue CCTV cameras, the HDView Baluns range comprises a Single Channel HD Passive Balun (HDBALUNV), Single Channel HD Video and Power Balun (HDBALUNVP), as well as a Single Channel HD Video and Power Transmitter Balun (HDBALUNVPCT).
They provide real-time transmission over UTP cat5e/6, offer exceptional interference rejection and feature a built-in transient voltage suppressor for surge protection.
AHD is the most recently developed solution for transmitting full 720P HD digital video in a CCTV surveillance system. The ground-breaking concept of AHD is to deliver high definition video using digital TV (DTV) transmission. AHD leverages the extremely robust AV transmission capability of DTV to easily and seamlessly upgrade an analogue CCTV surveillance system to digital full HD.
With AHD, high definition digital video can be transmitted easily over existing coaxial cabling – the same cabling used for existing standard resolution analogue systems. Cable run limitation is not a problem as AHD cable runs can easily exceed 300m – longer than a standard analogue system’s capability.
