Customer Question

I have an analog CCTV with cameras approximately 600' from the DVR using a 22 gauge Ickey Pic shielded cable. The picture on the monitor has lines and appears clear then distorts.
I installed a VID4AMP amplifier which didn't clear up the problem.
Any suggestions?

Hello and thank you for your question. I look forward to assisting you today. You have an impedance mismatch and will need what is called a balun at each end to correct the problem.
