Made with Belden 179DT Cable and Kings 2065-28-9 Connectors DigiTruck RG179 Miniature Broadcast Production Coaxial Cable Belden1s New RG-179 Type coaxial cable is ideal for HDTV broadcast trucks weighs 60% less and takes up to 40% less space than standard Mini RG-59/U Type coaxes. This cable is ultra light, extremely flexible, and perfect for routing your cables on camera rigs and various cinema camera applications. To comfortably support today's broadcast technology, especially HDTV, mobile television broadcast trucks are densely packed with equipment and over-the-road axle weight requirements have become a real concern. To help lighten the truck's load, lessen the amount of space needed, and to improve air-conditioning air flow and gas mileage, Belden offers Brilliance DigiTruck 179DT lightweight RG-179 Type 75-ohm coaxial cable. This new coax weighs 7.25 pounds per 1,000 feet and has a guaranteed return loss of 21dB (minimum) and is sweep tested to 3 GHz. This mimics the return loss performance of Belden1s most popular Brilliance precision video cables, providing 6dB of RL headroom against the SMPTE 292M specification. 179DT features a highly crush-resistant, foamed high-density polyethylene (FHDPE) dielectric to help ensure the durability of the cable a particularly important characteristic for use on television broadcast trucks.

Please Note: This cable is designed for permanent installs and is limited in its capacity to send 3G-SDI over very long distances. See the secondary image of this product for further details.
