A/V over Cat5, modern miracles

In an ongoing effort to reduce the amount of cables on set, and to add more functionality to my rig. I decided to try out using Cat5 cable as a means to distribute audio and video feeds while on location. MuxLab makes a series of passive boxes that take various combinations of composite video, component video, and analog audio and combines them into a single Cat5 cable. The setup pictured bellow transmits two video feeds and two audio feeds over cat5. That's a total of four connections made by a single run of cat5. Pretty slick I think. The cable is a high durability jacketed cat5e cable made by gepco.
