Canare Debuts New Line Of Active BNCs, Hybrid Fiber Optic
Camera And Low Loss Coax Cables At NAB 2013
New BNC series touts first productA solution that fully integrates a return-loss network, receiver cable equalizer or transmitter cable driver into the unit – a boon to the design community
Las Vegas, Nevada, April 8, 2013
the leading manufacturer of the highest quality pro audio and video cables and cable reels; connectors, patchbays, snake systems, assemblies and tools for the broadcast, media and entertainment markets, will be showcasing their new line of active BNCs, Tufcal HFO (Hybrid Fiber Optic) camera and lightweight, low loss coax cables at this year’s NAB show, in the Las Vegas Convention Center in boothA C10421.
The newly developed active BNCs are purpose built for theA performance, connectivity and reliability requirements for the broadcast, production/post production and OEM markets. The RoHs compliant active BNCs comeA in both right angle (Model: BCA-TL/RL) and straight mount (Model: BCA-TS/RS)A configurations and fully supports 3G-SDI/HD-SDI/SD-SDI/DVB-ASI, as well as theA SMPTE 424M, 292M, and 259M standards. The new series is also the industry’sA first product solution that fully integrates a return-loss network, cableA equalizer (BCA-RS/RL receiver) or cable driver (BCA-TS/TL transmitter) as partA of the BNC receptacle – yet retains the same size as Canare’s famous BCJ-BPLHA series. This is especially important to manufacturers and designers since theyA can now cost-effectively design a full bandwidth 3G-SDI system withoutA requiring specific knowledge on how to meet the SMPTE return loss specificationA – which can take considerable time and expense using discrete devices, and isA highly dependent on the PCB layout pattern.
Also unique to the Canare design are that the color ofA the BNC insulator and terminal pin are different between the transmitter andA receiver for easy identification; the addition of an enable/disable pin for theA transmitter products to save power when there is no input signal and havingA full LVDS (Low-Voltage Differential Signaling) output support for the receiversA to minimize RFI generation while supporting 3G-SDI bandwidths over inexpensiveA twisted-pair cables.
Canare will also debut its new LF-2SM7T ‘Tufcal’ HFOA camera cable and its L-2.5 CHLTA lightweight lowA loss coax cable atA the show. Both new products address the weight, reliability and affordabilityA shortcomings of conventional cables, while retaining the uncompromising quality
and performance standards that Canare is famous for.
The new LF-2SM7TA Tufcal cable is designed toA eliminate the weight and internal fiber breakage problems of conventionalA camera cables, providing highly functional performance such asA lateral pressure resistance, shock resistance and bending tolerance thatA exceeds that of MIL-SPEC Tactical Cable (TAC-4). Its light weight and highA flexibility make it ideal for short-distance relay broadcast applications of upA to 200 meters. And since its internal fiber construction is highly resistant toA breakage, even when handled roughly, it works most effectively in active cameraA applications common to ENG/EFP news relays or other on-location shoots whereA weight savings and durability are a priority.
Canare's new L-2.5CHLT is high foaming copper clad aluminum coaxial cable withA a composite of aluminum core covered by copper and bonded; and is sheathed in aA lightweight aluminum-coated copper braid shield. As a result, it’s 30% lighterA than conventional copper wire and is ideal for limited weight carrying cameraA relay vehicles. In addition, soldering is as good as with copper wire and theA new cable’s copper clad aluminum core has higher conductivity than that ofA aluminum wire.
“Canare is pleased to offer the broadcast and videoA communities our new active BNC and cable products to help them keep ahead ofA the industry’s ongoing quest for higher performance, weight savings, and aA reduction in capital and operational expenditures,” said Jun-Ichiro Ohno, CEOA and president, Canare Corporation of America. “The continuing global salesA growth that we are seeing in the broadcast and professional A/V markets is aA testament of our ever-increasing market adoption for our interconnect technologies.A We will continue to drive innovation and support our partners as we have forA the past 40 years, while further establishing our technological leadership inA providing the best-in-class cable and connector solutions to our continuallyA growing multi-national clientele.”
