Network Video Technologies today announced that its new unshielded twisted pair wire (UTP) CCTV power-video-data product, the NV-218A-PVD, incorporates the transceiver engine of NVT's popular NV-213A video transceiver to allow a direct video output connection from the camera. This innovative new product adds power and data connections to and from the camera.
"The unparalleled interference rejection and low emissions of the NV-218A-PVD let video signals co-exist in the same wire bundle as telephone, datacom, or low-voltage power circuits," emphasizes Guy Apple, NVT vice president, marketing and sales. "This allows the use of a shared or existing cable plant, reducing costs and time of installation. As with all NVT products, the NV-218A-PVD carries a limited lifetime warranty and is UL and cUL listed."
With the new NV-218A-PVD, power, video and data are routed via UTP and RJ45 or 'press-fit' terminal block inputs/outputs. When used at the camera, the passive NV-218A-PVD has a 9-inch mini-coax pigtail lead for direct video output connection from the camera.
Alongside the coax lead are two sets of "press-fit" terminal blocks for quick pass-through connections for the camera's power and data. On the "house" or output side of the product, installers have the option of deploying convenient "press-fit" UTP connectors or the more efficient RJ45.
NVT's transmitters, transceivers, receivers and hubs allow the use of new or existing unshielded twisted pair wire, Category 2 or better, for video transmission. This allows end-users and installers to deliver a high quality picture over the same wire used by phone systems while simultaneously cutting costs and simplifying installation.
