Belden shows latest HD solutions – and more – at IBC

At IBC, to be held from 9 until 13 September 2011 at the RAI Exhibition Center in Amsterdam, Belden will showcase its world-class solutions for HD and 3G applications in Hall 1 at Stand C21.

As an industry leader, Belden has a proven track record in reliability and high quality which is especially important for the registration of “live” events. The company offers a broad product portfolio for HD and 3G applications, and as every year, Belden will be using its IBC booth to highlight its latest high quality infrastructure solutions for a wide range of applications. Belden specialists will be on hand to demonstrate how physically robust Belden cables offer excellent support for the high frequencies needed for digital video. It is here that Belden delivers Installable Performance®, providing sufficient headroom so the cable will still work after installation.

This year, Belden’s main emphasis will be on cables for both studio and field use, as well as cables for use in permanent installations.

Key innovations and features include:

Belden Brilliance HD BNC

Instead of using a standard 3-piece crimp BNC connector to connect a 3 Gb/s HD coaxial cable, Belden now offers a new line of Belden 1-piece compression BNC. After prepping the cable, the 1-piece compression connector can be fitted in a few seconds. And this solution is tested up to 4.5 GHz to meet the professional broadcast performance of 3G (1080).

Belden 3 Gb/s HD Coax Cables

Once again this year, Belden will be supporting a demonstration at the nearby Grass Valley booth (Hall 1 D11). Grass Valley will be showing its Trinix router, running 3G (1080p/60) through Belden 1694A. The transmission distance chart at the Belden booth says this cable can go 82 m. Last year, this demo was actually achieving 140m.

Belden Duofoil™ Plus Coax Design

Last year, Belden introduced Belden 1794A, the first RG-7 coax cable designed specifically for 1080p/50-60 “3gig” applications, with a high-velocity core, and Belden Duofoil™ shield, for the ultimate in shield effectiveness. The product was so successful that this year, the cable is now also available in RG-59 and RG-6.

Hirschmannn™ Ethernet Switches

Belden’s Hirschmann™ brand offers an Ethernet switch with the same high reliability of other Belden broadcast equipment. Mean-time-between-failure: 40 years. Five-nines reliability (5 minutes per year). A back-up switch can be booted and formatted in seconds. According to PTPv2 (IEEE1588) at all ports, plus PoE and with 10G ports.
