At IBC, held from September 11-15, 2009 at the RAI Exhibition Center in Amsterdam, Belden will showcase a range of new and existing products in Hall 1 at Stand C21.

Belden is set to focus on the cable developments for HD which offer extended broadcast quality. Visitors will be able to see the results of Belden’s work to upgrade and improve cables for both studio and field use, as well as cables for use in permanent installations. Belden cables deliver Installable PerformanceTM promising to deliver unequalled performance after installation thanks to the high-density nitrogen-gas-injected foam dielectric and use of both small and closed-cell bubbles.

New developments and products which will be shown include the new hybrid fiber SMPTE311 HD camera assembly and HDMI cables for HD audio and video.

Hybrid fiber SMPTE311 HD camera assembly

Belden offers one of the best-known SMPTE311 cables in the world and global standard SMPTE304M connectors, and has created a cost-effective SMPTE311 HD Camera Assembly that supports 720p, 1080i and 1080p.

The new Belden hybrid fiber SMPTE311 HD Camera Assembly was designed specifically for high definition (HD) fibered broadcast cameras and is ideal for Studio and Field Camera Applications, requiring multiplex audio and video signals and power. Adding range to reliability, these new Belden HD Camera Assemblies enable transmission distances of up to 4.000 meters.

HDMI cables for HD audio and video

Belden now offers a complete line of HDMI cables and related products for use by the home theater installer, including 26 AWG shielded twisted pair HDMI cables in lengths of 1, 2, 3, 4, and 7 meters.

Belden HDMI digital video/audio cables can be used to connect HDMI sources like broadband/cable set-top boxes, digital video recorders, DVD players, HD-DVD and Blu-ray players to displays like plasma screens, digital light projection (DLP) projectors, liquid-crystal displays (LCDs) and liquid crystal on silicon (LCOS) or digital image light amplification (D-ILA) devices, among others.

Tactical Fiber cable

This has been significantly upgraded and improved by Belden for broadcast quality. It is primarily used for long haul high definition (HD) transmissions from mobile trucks. The new ITU G.657 standard fiber has full compatibility with G.652.D fibers with low bending loss to enable smaller fiber management (< 0,5dB/km at 1625nm and < 0,2dB/km at 1550nm). It has a Core-Bonded™ outer jacket and is also available in 2-12 fibers (GMTT8xx)CatSnake™ Four-channel, Heavy-duty Cat5e Snake.

This is an ideal solution for applications that require multiple or redundant channels of Cat5e cables in remote production or staging applications.

Heat-resistant Hybrid Fiber Cable for HDTV Cameras

This is available as mobile cable for use in the studio or in the field and also as static cable for use in permanent installations. All three versions have flexible black jackets in either halogen-free, PUR or PVC and all feature heat-resistant PE insulation. The range is available with a special put-up for easy connectorization on the drum.

Expanded line of FRNC speaker cables

All these unshielded speaker cables are halogen-free but still flexible. The Brilliance® line consists of 1.5mm², 2.5mm² and 4.0mm² constructions.

Speaker snake products are 46379NH: 2.5 mm² (13 AWG), 50 strand, 4 conductor; 43907NH: 2.5 mm² (13 AWG), 300 strand, 8 conductor.

Expanded line of FRNC OFHC premium construction speaker cables

These cables are halogen-free but still flexible and have low capacitance. They are made with oxygen-free copper for exceptional clarity of sound. Print legends, such as Room 123 or Zone ABC, facilitate location identification. Single pair products available are 70003E2: 2.5 mm² (13 AWG), 651 strand, 2 conductor and 70004E2: 4.0 mm² (11 AWG), 651 strand, 2 conductor. Speaker snake products are 70003E4: 2.5 mm² (13 AWG), 651 strand, 4 conductor and 70003E8: 2.5 mm² (13 AWG), 1040 strand, 8 conductor.

CATV Multicore Cable for Multi Switch Systems

Belden has extended their highly popular CATV range with an easy-to-install bundle of H121A. This has the very common European video coaxial dimension of 0.8/3.5. The new cable provides optimum signal transmission performance for MATV/SMATV in 3x0.8/3.5, 5x0.8/3.5 and 9x0.8/3.5 versions.

NanoSkew™ Brilliance® VideoTwist™ in S/FTP design

Belden’s new shielded design of the well-known NanoSkew™ is now available for Digital Signage applications.

CA00270 Brilliance Assemblies™ SMPTE 311M HDTV

With the increase in high definition video applications, such as 1080i/p and 720p, bandwidth demands on camera cables has grown significantly. To meet this, Belden now offers the new generation, heat resistant 7804E range. This consists of dual single-mode fiber optic cables and copper components for power and data. It uses a special connector made by Lemo 3K.93C or ADC ProAx™ or Neutrik”s Opticalcon®.


Halogen-free cable developments were another important attraction for visitors who recognize that Belden is a well-established leader in this particular field:

Halogen-free VideoFlex® Snake Cable

This highly popular cable has been extended with an easy-to-install bundle of 1855ENH. It has the very common European video coaxial dimension of 0.6/2.8 and is now available in 3x0.6/2.8 (1855EN3), 5x0.6/2.8 (1855EN5) and 6x0.6/2.8 (1855EN6).

Halogen-free Mini High Resolution S-Video Cable (1855AN2)

This is the ideal cable for residential installations, such as home theatre and musical applications using BNC connectors.

Halogen-free 179DT

Belden now offers a halogen-free version of the popular Brillance DigitTruck 179DT lightweight RG-179 type 75-ohm coaxial cable. This is designed to help lighten truck load which in turn reduces fuel consumption. It takes up less space and improves air-conditioning flow.

Other cable developments include 1347A – a 2V4A ENG cable, carrying 2x 1505A plus 4x 9451 for Digital Camera applications, and 1694S5 – a 1694A 5 pack banana peel HD video snake swept to 4.5 GHz.
