    Nice; I've been using shielded video cables with BNC connectors directly from DVR to cameras so far
    I am definitely not a pro plumber, but I am a pro crastinator

    Coax is nice, At least you don't have cross-talk to deal with.

    The only problem with using wire, Is lightning protection.

    Sometimes Wireless pays off just because of the Electrical Isolation that you get.

    Fiber also works great, You can't get much more Isolated than that. No ground loops to deal with either.

    Fiber should get cheaper, I look for more Fiber Optic stuff to be available at a reasonable price.

    Right now the twisted pair using Cat cable seems to be the choice for Video Security Systems.

    Looks great, but why the power hookup? Do I need that power just for sending color video? And if yes, what transformer would work with that?

    You only need the power if your camera is located away from a usable power source.

    Or you could use it for Battery Backup Power.
