- The RG59 Siamese cable is more heavily shielded so it's more durable and can be run longer
distances (up to 1000 ft. without a repeater). It's heavier shielding makes it less susceptible to
interference. Florescent lighting in particular can interfere with camera signals. The RG59 is purchased
in 500 or 1000 ft. rolls and each camera run is cut to the exact length needed. Since you need to cut the
cable and attached the connectors, it is a little more involved to install.
