Answer: S-Video Maximum Length There are a lot of issues that can develop when running long lengths of cable. A safe length for S-Video is 150ft. This length is subject to signal strength from the source unit and being run in an area that is relatively free from interference.

If you need to increase this length, you can use a device called an S-Video Balun. The S-Video Balun is a stand alone device that transforms a single S-Video channel to and from CAT-5 twisted pair cabling. CAT-5 cable is much cheaper than S-Video and can be run up to a maximum of 500 ft.
