Easy-to-install, customizable models gain popularity in passive video baluns segment

Passive video baluns continue to drive production in China with a 90 percent share of aggregate supply.


  • Passive video baluns dominate: With a 90 percent share of China’s total video balun output, passive varieties continue to lead production. This type offers ease of use and cost efficiency. Entry-level models list at $0.30, at least one-tenth of the price of an active counterpart. Makers predict passive units will lead mainstream supply in the next three years.
  • Ease of installation: More companies are developing tool-free installation design. Push-pin, press-fit and other tool-free connectors are replacing traditional screw terminals in many recent releases. RJ-45 jack is also available in some models, but many manufacturers expect cost considerations to slow down adoption.
  • Enhanced durability: Several makers provide shielding for connectors for dust and water resistance. Surge protection may also be added.
  • Flexible configurations: Suppliers can customize products, allowing buyers options for connectors, wires and even the overall look.
