I've posted measurements of the degradation that cables does to video signals before; see here, but I was grabbing a couple of screen caps for an industry colleague and here they are.
As mentioned in a previous post I'm integrating one of the big 288x288 VideoHub routers - 572 3G High Def video connections (mix of coax and single-mode optical) and 288 RS422 remote ports. The thing is not very deep (maybe 100mm) and only 18u high and therein lies the problem; how do you cable it [...]
I've recently installed an NVision 8144 router at a large facility and some of the output cards are for fibre - dual LCs on each SFP with 3G video conforming to SMPTE 297M (SDi over single mode fibre). Very nice. Over the last couple of years I've put in a load of the little Black [...]
Read the article on BE's site; As video data rates increase, installation engineers must become as familiar with fibre as they are with coax. Many types of fibre and twisted-pair copper must be purchased pre-terminated. Runs of 3Gb/s in copper require special attention to cable type if long runs are required. It may be necessary [...]
Our head of Systems Integration and broadcast-engineering "Yoda", Phil Crawley, recently shared some of his vast knowledge in a series of packed out seminars at BVE - "training tasters" of root6's half-day training courses. If you didn't manage to squeeze your way in, or did but couldn't jot down all the info fast enough, then [...]
