ABSTRACT
This article presents information related to cable technology in security video systems. If cable runs less than 250 feet, coax is probably the best option. Between 250 and 8,000 feet, unshielded twisted pair (UTP), wire is often the best choice. If the runs are more than 8,000 feet, it's time to consider fiber. Other conditions that may indicate UTP wire include runs between buildings and floors, noisy environments, existing UTP wire, or the need for plenum cable or conduit. With UTP, systems also can be designed to maximize cable usage. INSET: A Diversity of Analog, Digital Fiber Transmission.
