M/A-COM Technology Solutions Holdings (“MACOM”), a supplier of semiconductor solutions for broadcast video infrastructure, has today that SMPTE compliant 12G-SDI transmission can be supported using MACOM’s award winning 12G-SDI cable drivers, equalisers and reclockers over Belden 1694A, 1505A, 1855A and 7731A cable.

“As 4K production needs grow in the studio, infrastructure costs are of upmost importance,” said Steve Lampen, multimedia technology manager and product line manager for Entertainment Products at Belden. “This year, we celebrate the 20th anniversary of 1694A. This cable and our other prolific models of precision video coax have been reliably deployed for years as the industry transitioned from SD to HD to 3G.”

“Demonstrating a 4K solution that can support the future needs of broadcast, MACOM has successfully transmitted fully compliant links over 1694A, 1505A, 1855A and 7731A using MACOM’s 12G-SDI chipset,” said Mike Fukatsu, director of product management, High Performance Analog, MACOM. “Belden cables are considered to be a defacto standard in the broadcast world. Partnering with a supplier so critical to this market helps MACOM enable the next generation of video production.”

MACOM’s award winning family of 12G-SDI products are currently shipping in volume. These MACOM products, along with the Atomos Shogun, will be shown at NAB 2015 April 13th – 16th, in booth N3115 in the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV.
