Sommer is now shipping new 6G/12G SDI cables designed for the newest video production systems. Featured are a variety of glass fiber hybrid cables with two single-mode optical fiber elements for video signal transmission and power for the camera. For this distinct solution, Sommer uses its highly flexible and compact camera cable SC-Octopus PUR 244 hybrid configuration. Only 9mm in diameter, the new Sommer cable is also compatible with the SMPTE 311M standard and features two single-mode fibers (9/125 micro millimeters OS2), four voltage power lines—0.5qmm (4 x AWG 20) each and, two 0.22qmm (2 x 2 x AWG 24) wire pairs for control data each. A CU-braid shield, an Aramid core, and an outer aramid braid below the outer jacket provide durability.
