The Z-Balun powered balun is one of the required components of Z-Band’s high definition Video Distribution System. It is located at the receive end of the system and permits a TV, Set-Top Box/Cable Box or PC with a Tuner Card to be connected to the system for HDTV over CAT 6 cable. A Z-Balun is required for each TV in the system.

Z-Balun Powered Baluns were formerly known as the Z-Band Gigabob product line.
