High Definition Coax: Miniature  
Miniature, Precision 75Ω Coax for HDTV Video  
         
   
  Precision, low-loss coax for uncompressed 1.485Gb/s Digital HDTV, SDI, and analog video transmission. With a 3GHz bandwidth, the Miniature HD series coax series can be used in a variety of digital or analog broadcast, commercial, or residential video applications.

The Miniature HD series utilizes a proprietary gas-injected dielectric that reduces the high-frequency attenuation and provides exceptionally low return-loss. The high-purity, solid copper center conductor has a precision overall diameter for exceptional electrical characteristics, while the double foil and braid shield provides broadband rejection from external RF and EMI interference.

Riser or CM rated, the Miniature HD coaxial cables have a low-friction and easy-to-strip jacket that simplifies cable installation and termination.

FEATURES & BENEFITS
Precision 75Ω Impedance
The characteristic impedance has precision tolerance specifications to prevent impedance mismatching that can lead to reflections, jitter, and bit-errors.
3GHz Bandwidth
Extended 3GHz cable bandwidth guarantees SRL, attenuation, and impedance specifications for accurate transmission of uncompressed 1.485Gb/s HDTV signals.
Gas-injected Dielectric
Proprietary, Nitrogen-injected, blended polyethylene dielectric provides uniform cell structure, crush resistance, and low structural return loss.
100% Swept Test to SMPTE 292M Standards
All reels are swept test to meet or exceed the SMPTE 292M standards for High Definition video interconnects.
UL Rated for Permanent Installation
Outer jacket is UL listed for permanent installation.
