12 GHz Coax, the New Frontier: Exploring 4K Coax Cable Technology

Free Webinar: Available OnDemand


NOTE: We are currently experiencing a syncronization issue with our OnDemand recording of this webinar. If you listen through the introduction, the slides will eventually sync up with Steve. We are working on a solution. Thank you for your patience!

When will copper fail us? From the beginnings of electronic media, broadcast engineers have struggled with the bandwidth limitations of interconnecting cable. When 4K and other high data rate services first appeared, it seemed only fiber could handle the bandwidth. But we thought the same when SDI was introduced. Belden first introduced 4794R and now 4855R. Will these be the new 8281 and 9209? Have we reached the limit of electrons in cable, or are there new technologies that will extend the convenience of cable and connectors into the next generation of broadcast?

With each advance in interconnection, new methods for installation and use come with new limitations along with the improvements in bandwidth. This webinar covers interconnection in the 12 GHz world, and what is likely to be the technology for the next generation.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  1. If you can use existing cable for 12 GHz 4K applications.
  2. If there is a difference between 6 GHz 4K and 12 GHz 4K when choosing cable.
  3. Connectors you can use for 12 GHz 4K applications.
