HD Designed Coaxial Cables

The European Broadcast Union (EBU) has recently decided to support both 720p/50 Hz and 1080i/50 Hz high definition (HD) formats, which results in a clock of 750 MHz and a data rate of 1.5 Gbits/second.

1080p/50 Hz with a clock of 1.5 GHz and a data rate of 3 Gbits/second is an attractive production format for high-quality sport production, and as a master format that will convert into 1080i/720p with minimal transfer artifacts; the EBU is keen to promote its adoption in the longer term.

Top Reasons why to use Belden’s HD coaxial cables

  1. Country of manufacturing: USA and Europe
  2. Belden exceeds the standards, longer lengths possible - Belden's HD coaxes deliver 3G
  3. Belden guarantees return loss (-23 dB from 5 MHz to 1.6 GHz and -21 dB from 1.6 GHz to 4.5 GHz; Belden coaxial cables are ready for 1080p)
  4. HD designed coaxial cables (high-density nitrogen-gas-injected foam dielectric; Belden's bubbles are small and closed-cell)
  5. Quality and Consistency. No connector issues and re-pulling of cable
