Panasonic TR-930 CCTV Monitor

The Panasonic TR-930 CCTV Monitor is an affordable used alternative to costly security and surveillance video camera CCTV monitors. They were made in the '80s, so they have a history of consistent performance, and they have a cool understated style that's not unpleasing to look at, too! Need to know how to connect a coaxial or RCA signal to a BNC connection? Scroll down to find out how I got this beautiful image of Olivia Newton-John on my BNC input CCTV Monitor.

This Panasonic TR-930A black & white CCTV monitor was manufactured in January of 1988, and it has a typically '80s style. This commercial-grade video monitor has a 9-inch cathode ray tube screen and a boxy industrial steel cabinet. It was originally designed for security cameras and closed-circuit television, medical instrument monitors, high-tech manufacturing, and other industrial purposes. Ours still works perfectly after 25 years and looks like it will go for 25 more. It still has a nice crisp picture and all the fine-tuning controls you need to get the image just right.  The entire unit measures 9.5 inches x 9 inches x 8.75 inches.

How to Connect a coaxial video signal to a BNC connection on a CCTV Monitor

You know, that thing on the back of many commercial CCTV monitors that looks like a standard coaxial cable jack, but doesn't fit a coaxial cable! The Panasonic TR-930 CCTV has only BNC input & output connections, and we don't personally own any closed-circuit cameras or compatible equipment, so I had to get creative to test it. I had a really hard time getting a straight answer on the interweb regarding this issue, so I just went to my local Radio Shack and started poking around.  By poking around, I mean just that...when did Radio Shack start employing absolutely no one who can help you with anything technical? So, I purchased a BNC to coaxial adaptor  and attempted to connect a VCR signal via coaxial cable. That did nothing at all. So I thought for a second and realized that this video monitor doesn't accept any audio signals, so I needed to isolate a video source. I went back to Radio Shack and purchased a coaxial to RCA connector (which is also great for connecting 1980s video game consoles to modern TVs without the need for those crummy old RF switch boxes). Finally, I connected a standard RCA A/V cord in the back of the VCR's video output, connected it to the coaxial cable with said adaptor, then attached my BNC to coax adaptor tip to the end of the coax cable. When I plugged it in and turned on the monitor, it worked! Of course, you can skip all of this nonsense and just get one of these things to connect the RCA video source directly without that coaxial cable...

I could have saved myself $6.50 at the Rat Shack, as well as precious time wasted with know-nothings. I'm being a little harsh, I guess. It was my fault that I had a question about out how to play my retro video games on my CCTV Monitor, and not about a cell phone.
