I have a question about using different types of cables (e.g. CAT6 [SU]TP) for signal and power runs to analog video cameras (that normally run with co-ax) as part of a security system (residential). The reason I'd like to use different types of cables is to make installation easier, and the reason I want to ask about it is because I'm not sure what types of cables can carry the signals effectively while preserving quality.
Three sites immediately come to mind:
- Video Production - I imagine the people here will know about video signals over different types of cables and, as a bonus, perhaps know about other A/V-centric solutions. My system can run in any of CVBS / AHD / TVI / CVI modes and this is the only site where I feel like people would know what those stand for.
- Electrical Engineering - I imagine the people here will have a good understanding of things like signal loss and EM noise, which is a major part of my question.
- Home Improvement - Since it's a security system in the residential building that I live in. Also, since the reason behind my question is to make installation simpler, they may know some good installation strategies.
Which ones can I ask on, and, of those, which one is my best bet?
