Belden gets ready to connect
Belden is set to show its full range of broadcast solutions at IBC 2014. A first in the broadcast industry: extending Belden’s world-class range of coaxial digital video cables and connectors, the new Belden Duobond Plus DNH series with bonded foil over the dielectric make the termination of Belden’s 1-Piece HD BNC very easy and much faster than the traditional 3-Piece BNCs.
They set the standard for reliability to deliver the performance required for HD, 3G and 4K video transmissions, with guaranteed signal integrity over longer transmission distances, helping to save both installation time and costs.
Belden has also introduced a new high quality hybrid fibre SMPTE311 HD Camera Assembly that supports 720p, 1080i and 1080p. HD cameras provide digital transmission using SMPTE311 standard fibre optic cable for connecting to the camera control unit. In addition to their exceptional quality, HD cameras can transmit all digital bi-directional video and audio signals, one control line, power line, and prompter line over extremely long distances – up to 4000 metres with Belden SMPTE311 HD Camera Assemblies.
A key example of Belden’s approach is the recently completed 45,000 square-meter Hazza Bin Zayed Stadium located in Al Ain in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, which has used Belden copper and fibre cables to achieve high signal integrity and camera compatibility. The Belden cabling infrastructure supports 85 screens, including an enormous 40 square metre stadium screen, a sophisticated audio system, dedicated media centre, press conference room, outside broadcast units and more than 30 camera locations for television broadcasting.
