The 1164 is an S-Video Panelmount Cable,
with a standard 4-pin mini-din plug
(male) connector at one end and a 4-pin
mini-din female panel mount connector
at the other.
These wall-mounting video cables are ideal for
mounting video ports into face plates and wall plates
for clean and secure termination. The
wire can be run through walls, ceilings, and
and conduits to remote locations—perfect for
boats, offices, and home theaters.
When combined with a wall plate,
these cables offer convenient access to mounted
video displays or cameras, such as in classrooms,
presentation environments, and video labs.
The cable is made of 75 ohm mini-coaxial
video wire, with individually-shielded conductors
for the luma and chroma video signals. This low-loss cable
allows optimal signal strength at lengths of up to 200 feet (in most
S-Video (SVHS) was typically used in high-end video
applications and equipment, and on
many camcorders. It is still common as a legacy
connector, but has generally been superceded by
component (Y/Cb/Cr) video and digital formats.
Additionally, if you have legacy Macintosh peripherals in your setup, the 1164 can act as a panel-mount ADB cable.
