CHAPTER 2: Introduction
2. Introduction
With the Video Stereo Audio Balun, you can transmit composite baseband video
and audio signals across Category 3 or better unshielded twisted-pair (UTP) cable,
which is already wired into most commercial sites. Use pairs of Baluns to transmit
standard NTSC, PAL, or SECAM composite video with stereo audio: The Balun
near the media source takes a single composite baseband video signal from 75-ohm
coaxial cable, as well as left and right audio signals from two 600-ohm phono
cables, converts the signals, and transmits them over UTP cable to the other Balun,
which converts them back and sends them to their destination.
Connect the Video Stereo Audio Balun to a site’s structured cabling through
a modular wall jack in the work area. Each Balun has a BNC connector and two
RCA connectors at one end and an RJ-45 jack at the other end.
The Video Stereo Audio Balun is designed for use with CCTV cameras and
monitors, video-cassette recorders (NTSC, PAL, or SECAM), videoconferencing,
and other baseband audiovisual equipment. Applications include: security/
surveillance monitoring, video bulletin boards, financial information services,
news services, education, video training, airport displays, video capture, and
informational displays in stock exchanges, hotels, and convention centers.

3. Installation
To install a pair of Video Stereo Audio Baluns, take these steps:
CAUTION!
Do not attempt to open the housing. There are no user-serviceable parts
inside the Video Stereo Audio Balun. Opening the unit will void your
warranty.
1. Make sure that the video-destination device is not too far away from the
media-source device(s) (refer to the Maximum Distance specification in
Chapter 1). If the destination device is beyond the reach of the source Balun,
the signals the device receives will be weak or nonexistent.
2. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for turning off power to the video and
audio equipment you will be attaching, and disconnecting that equipment
from AC power and from all other devices.
3. Make certain that the telecommunications outlets and cross-connects to
which you will connect the Baluns are configured properly and are labeled
so that the circuit can be identified.
CAUTION!
Do not connect the Video Stereo Audio Balun to a telecommunication
outlet wired to unrelated equipment. Making such a connection may
damage the equipment and/or the Balun. Make sure that all wiring is
straight-through-pinned.
4. Verify that the twisted-pair circuit you want to use is not already being used
for other LAN or telephone equipment.
5. Optional: Each Balun comes with VELCRO® mounting pads. To mount a
Balun to a surface, first make sure that that surface is free of dust, oil, etc.,
so the VELCRO will adhere to it. Then peel off the adhesive backing, attach
one side of the pads to the Balun, and attach the other side to the surface.
CAUTION!
Do not mount the Balun over equipment-ventilation openings. Doing so
might damage the Balun or cause the equipment to overheat.
6. For each Balun—depending on what type of video equipment you are
attaching it to—plug its BNC female connector either directly into the
device’s BNC male connector, or into the BNC male connector of a cable that
runs to the device, such as the cable included with the Balun. You can also
run phono cables from your audio source(s) and plug them into the Balun’s

RCA phono jacks; you can use one or both of the audio channels,
as appropriate for your application. Refer to Figure 3-1.

Figure 3-1. The Balun and its connectors.
7. Connect one end of a UTP cable into each Balun’s RJ-45 modular jack.
To carry the video signal, these cables must carry a wire pair pinned to
RJ-45 Pins 7 and 8. To carry the left audio signal, the cables must carry
a pair pinned to Pins 3 and 6. To carry the right audio signal, the cables
must carry a pair pinned to Pins 1 and 2.
8. Plug the other end of each UTP cable into the appropriate video wall outlet
or patch panel. When this is done, a complete cabling circuit should run
between the two baluns, as shown in Figure 3-2.

4. Troubleshooting
4.1 Things to Try If Problems Occur
If at any time your Video Stereo Audio Balun system does not seem to be working
properly, take these steps:
1. Following the manufacturer’s instructions, perform diagnostics on your video
and/or audio equipment.
2. If this doesn’t solve the problem, check all cable connections and the integrity
of your site wiring.
3. You might be trying to transmit the audio/video signals across too great a
length of cable. The maximum distance over which the Baluns can transmit
and receive video signals depends on your cable and your video and audio
equipment; refer to the Maximum Distance specification in Chapter 1.
4. Make sure that the patch cord you are running between the Balun and your
site’s wiring system is the correct cable type and is properly pinned (see the
Cable Required specification in Chapter 1).
5. If possible, replace the Video Stereo Audio Baluns involved in the problem
with Video Stereo Audio Baluns that are known to be working, one at a time.
If at any point the problem goes away, there is probably a defect in the Balun
you just replaced.
6. If you still cannot diagnose the problem, call Black Box for technical support
as described in the next section.

• when the problem occurs;
• the components involved in the problem;
• any particular application that, when used, appears to create the problem or
make it worse; and
• the results of any testing you’ve already done.
