ProCo Sound to Showcase HD-SDI Cable at 2017 NAB Show

At the 2017 NAB Show, ProCo Sound will feature its HD-SDI cable, a 100 percent sweep tested, low loss coax cable designed for broadcasters that need a high-performance and reliable SDI connection.

ProCo’s HD-SDI cable is a low-cost solution built for connecting equipment and video distribution gear with standard size BNC inputs. The cable helps broadcast facility migration trends towards Serial Digital Video and HDTC standards.

“Cabling is often one of the most relied upon products by broadcasters and needs to be considered just as vital to an eco-system as the cameras,” said Darius Seabaugh, ProCo’s vice president of marketing. “If you cannot reliably transfer the data that your gear is capturing, the entire ecosystem falls apart.”

The ProCo HD-SDI cable features a bare copper conductor, gas injected foam HDPE insulation, a Duofoil tinned copper braided shield and durable PVC jacket. It measures in at 19 AWG and has an electrical resistance of up to 75 ohms.  At the 2017 NAB Show, ProCo Sound will feature its HD-SDI cable, a 100 percent sweep tested, low loss coax cable designed for broadcasters that need a high-performance and reliable SDI connection.
