With multiple choices of cable constructions in the market, it can be difficult to choose which one is best to handle the higher bandwidth requirements of 4K. The tendency has been to migrate to higher and higher category levels, which leads to increased costs and complexity to install.
Belden’s 4K UHD Media Cable, 2183, provides 4K video over HDBaseT for up to 100m. Experienced in signal transmission and cabling solutions, Belden conducted extensive HDBaseT testing in its engineering lab, in order to understand which cable design best supports the higher bandwidth needs of 4K video. Belden 4K UHD Media Cable was developed as a result. It fully supports the 5 play feature of HDBaseT, audio/video, USB 2.0, 100BaseT Ethernet, control signals and 100W power, but it does so in a design that is small and flexible, easy to install and terminate, claims the company.
As one of the first cables to be UL certified with the new Power over HDBaseT (PoH) rating, Belden claims that users can be sure that its new cable will safely deliver up to 100W of power without compromising performance. The test lab included several different brands of equipment and Belden 2183 is interoperable with all, providing the best results that equipment could deliver, claims the company.
