Using a balun (balanced-unbalanced) adapter, you should be able to do 500' with color NTSC. Look for Avaya SYSTIMAX 380-series adapter or have your cabling supplier cross-reference that part with other manufacturer's part.
Non-balanced signal will not make it through 500' of CAT5, so avoid using direct connection adapters, such as Ortronics' IDC-to-RCA outlet inserts.
