July 5, 2007 -- Coleman Cable Inc. (CCI) has introduced a line of signal high-end RGB coax cables to support a range of applications for commercial and residential video systems. According to the company, the mini coaxes can be used to transfer HDTV or traditional video, digital or analog audio, and cable TV between electronic components.
A 3-coax version of the CCI line (#99403) transfers the RGB (Red, Green, Blue) signal from a video source to a display. A 5-coax version (#99405) can be used with projectors that require horizontal and vertical synchronization, in addition to the RGB signal, or for a combination of digital and analog audio.
Also, the company's line of bundled precision video coaxial cables now includes Cat 5e cables, for supporting applications including Internet telephone, networking, IR control, audio/video over baluns, and automation.
"Flexibility is the key with our new RGB line," contends Deane Myers, product and market manager for CCI's Security/Home Technology division. "Custom installers now can easily move audio/video signals between components as diverse as CCTV and HDTV or analog and digital audio."
CCI says the precision video coax cables' solid 23 AWG center conductor offers superior electrical performance over stranded, especially at higher frequencies, and is easier to terminate than stranded.Each mini coax is sweep tested to 3.0 GHz and constructed with 100% foil and 95% tinned copper (TC) braid to offer excellent shielding against EMI and RFI interference. The product also complies with the new proposed SCTE standard for mini coax.
