Semtech, Canare partner to extend 12G UHD-SDI cable reach benchmark

May 26, 2016
At the recent NAB Show 2016, Semtech demonstrated a new 12G UHD-SDI performance benchmark utilizing Canare’s high-performance coaxial cable, which is optimized for UHDTV applications.

Semtech Corporation (NASDAQ: SMTC), a supplier of analog and mixed-signal semiconductors, announced that its advanced portfolio of 12G UHD-SDI products has set a new industry cable-reach performance benchmark utilizing a new coaxial cable optimized for UHDTV applications from Canare, a supplier of UHDTV cabling solutions. Semtech says its 12G GS12141 retiming cable equalizer and GS12181 retiming cable driver each offer superior performance at all data rates and have established an industry benchmark for cable reach that is further enhanced when utilizing Canare’s L-5.5CUHD cable.

Semtech’s portfolio of 12G UHD-SDI products was demonstrated in the company's booth at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) show (April 18-21) in Las Vegas. The company notes that UHD-SDI technology is ideal for UHDTV infrastructures, including routers, cameras, monitors, switchers and more, offering pristine image quality. The technology is backwards compatible with existing SDI systems and is standardized by both the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) and the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), simplifying UHDTV infrastructure upgrades and reducing risk for broadcasters.

“The rapid industry adoption of UHDTV is placing greater demands on the performance of UHD-SDI infrastructures,” said Don Shaver, director of video marketing for Semtech’s Signal Integrity Product Group. “Semtech and Canare share a common commitment to pushing the limits of UHDTV technology. Our range of 12G UHD-SDI interface products feature the industry’s most robust cable reach performance and excellent cross-talk and noise immunity, further augmented by Canare’s L-5.5CUHD cable. We are very pleased to see Canare addressing the critical requirements of broadcasters as they deploy their next generation UHD-SDI infrastructures.”
