Sommer Cable now shipping 6G/12G SDI products

AUTHOR: Inavate

Sommer Cable is now shipping single SDI lines with guaranteed 6G or 12G SDI transmission over distances of up to 100m (328 ft.) or more.

The project series SC-Vector and SC-Vector Plus have now been tested with 6G and 12G-SDI signals for their maximum transmission distances. It was found that the SC-Vector Plus RCBS 1.6 / 7.0 3G performs reliably up to 360 m (1180 ft.) at 30 fps, or 240 m (800 ft.) at 60 fps and transmitting 6G over up to 120 m (400 ft.).

The company’s latest generation of Hicon BNC connectors for SDI applications now provide even lower return loss, thus ensuring optimum signal quality.
