NVT Introduces Full RJ45 Connectivity

MENLO PARK, CALIF. -- Network Video Technologies (NVT) has introduced a full range of video transmission products featuring RJ45 connectivity, 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), letting end-users and installers 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 labor charges. 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," emphasizes Guy Apple, Vice President of Network Video Technologies (NVT).

NVT now offers 4-, 8-, 16- and 32-channel rack-mountable units with RJ45 video inputs for passive-to-passive multi-channel applications under 750 feet and passive-to-active multi-channel applications up to 3000 feet. The 8- and 16-channel active hubs also feature a built-in DA output, with quad or dual outputs per channel (respectively). As a result, 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.

"These new NVT transceivers are fully compatible with DVR technology and provide fully adjustable HF and LF gain controls," adds Apple. "They are compatible with 568B premise wiring standards, allowing easy future migration to an all-digital solution."

NVT will exhibit the new RJ45 solutions at the ISC West Exposition, Booth 16085, in Las Vegas, April 6-8.
