Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month
I've used these things to put security cameras around my house. Using these means I can get away with running a single cat5 cable which is a lot cheaper than a coax + two power leads.
These also support Audio but I don't record that.
They're a little bulkier than others, but these ones work well.
The wire in the power lead could be thicker - I've had to snip and bare a couple to connect to older cameras with those cable gripper connectors, instead of power sockets.
I'm pretty sure these add a bit of noise to the image, but they don't make it fuzzier or anything.
They're actually reversible - you can use two output ends or two input ends together, if you want to hack something together.
I've also used structured cabling to patch a camera through the house. Works well.
Joiners or poor-quality cabling make these work worse, so use decent cat5 and terminate them well. No need for cat6.
I have a single 5 A 12V power supply that runs 6 cameras without issue, throgh a couple of splitters.
Flexible and convenient for cameras.
You'll also want a stack of adapters, like BNC/RCA (both ways around, and both available on trademe)
