ADC's VX Series Standard Size Video Patch Cords feature a unique plug design that optimizes impedance performance during the patched state. The unique plug design is optimized for HD video applications. The ADC design reduces or eliminates attenuation and bit errors in serial digital and high-definition video signals, especially in the uncompressed mode.
ADC offers high-quality video patch cords capable of handling uncompressed high-definition digital video, serial digital video, and analog as well as AES audio. ADC patch cords feature a patented True 75 Ohm design made of the highest quality materials that virtually eliminates bit errors, and provides excellent mechanical durability.
The digital television revolution is stretching the limits of the physical plant technology designed for analog video copper. Cable and connectors not optimized for the digital environment can seriously degrade the digital signal being transported. The problem is that all WECO-standard jacks and patch cords exhibit an impedance violation of between 58 and 62 Ohm in the patched state. This becomes a major source of attenuation and bit errors in serial digital and high-definition video signals.
For WECO standard size HD patching, the STS series is recommended.
