Network Video Technologies (NVT) today introduced a range of video transmission products featuring RJ45 connectivity that are designed specifically for installers experienced with structured cabling systems.

NVT’s UTP transceivers allow the use of new or existing unshielded twisted pair wire (UTP), which the company says allows end-users and installers to deliver a high quality picture while cutting costs and simplifying installation.

“In most video transmission applications, coaxial cable is more difficult to install, resulting in higher labour charges,” said Guy Apple, NVT’s vice-president. “More and more, we were running into installers who wanted a 568B standards-based connectivity solution.

“They recognized the importance of reduced installation time and a fully-prepared cable plant for future digital systems.”

NVT now offers 4-, 8-, 16- and 32-channel rack-mountable units with RJ45 video inputs for passive-to-passive multi-channel applications under 230 metres and passive-to-active multi-channel applications up to 915 metres.

The 8- and 16-channel active hubs also feature a built-in DA output with quad or dual outputs per channel, respectively.

The new 1U tall, DA receiver hubs use rack-mount space more efficiently and enable easier integration into head-end systems, yielding savings on the equipment and installation time over standalone DAs.
