DigiTruck RG179 Miniature Broadcast Production Coaxial Cable
Belden's New RG-179 Type coaxial cable is ideal for HDTV broadcast trucks weighs 60% less and takes up to 40% less space than standard Mini RG-59/U Type coaxes.
To comfortably support today's broadcast technology, especially HDTV, mobile television broadcast trucks are densely packed with equipment and over-the-road axle weight requirements have become a real concern. To help lighten the trucks load, lessen the amount of space needed, and to improve air-conditioning air flow and gas mileage, Belden offers Brilliance DigiTruck 179DT lightweight RG-179 Type 75-ohm coaxial cable. This new coax weighs 7.25 pounds per 1,000 feet and has a guaranteed return loss of 21dB (minimum) and is sweep tested to 3 GHz.
This mimics the return loss performance of Belden1s most popular Brilliance precision video cables, providing 6dB of RL headroom against the SMPTE 292M specification. 179DT features a highly crush-resistant, foamed high-density polyethylene (FHDPE) dielectric to help ensure the durability of the cable a particularly important characteristic for use on television broadcast trucks.
