RG59 Composite A/V Snake Cables

 

RCC-HD Series

RG59 HD/SDI Coaxes - low attenuation that increases maximum allowable distances

22AWG Audio Pairs - low-loss twisted-pairs for balanced audio applications

4.5 GHz Coax Bandwidth - meets or exceeds SMPTE 292M and 424M standards for HD/SDI

100% Sweep Tested- network analyzer quality control for consistitent performance

Color Coded Elements - uniquely identifies each channel

TPE Outer Jacket - flexible and rugged for staging and remote broadcast applications

The RCC-HD series cables are hybrid audio and video cables designed for remote broadcast, staging and production environments. Each video element is a CD7559 20AWG RG59 HD/SDI coax cable that is rated to 4.5GHz for high definition SMPTE 424M, 292M and 259M video data transmission. The audio elements are made from Clark’s SPA22GS low-loss 22AWG single-pair cables. Each audio and video element is uniquely color coded for quick identification. The outer jacket is an extra-flexible and abrasion resistant TPE compound.
