KBS-3 Coax Camera to Digital Video Converter Unit

The Alpha Communications® / S.T.R.™ KBS-3 coax camera to digital video converter unit is used only with the S.T.R.™ QwikBUS™ series video-intercom systems, when using the TT33 or TT33-2 type lobby panel speaker/microphone assembly. The KBS-3 is used to convert the video data signal from the lobby entry camera's conventional NTSC coax signal, to a digital signal to be sent to the QwikBUS™ video monitor(s).

The KBS-3 gets its power from the TT33 or TT33-2 speaker/microphone module and does not require a separate power supply.

Each lobby camera connected to the QwikBUS™ series video-intercom system, requires one (1) KBS-3 converter.
