~ rearTWIST BNC Connectors Exceed Requirements for 1080p HD/SDI ~
LAS VEGAS, NV — As a technology leader in pro audio and broadcast connectivity, Neutrik continues to be proactive in meeting the changing requirements of the broadcast market through the introduction of its rearTWIST BNC Connectors. Users are demanding future-proof installations for HD 1080p (progressive), which requires twice the bandwidth of HD 1080i (interlaced); Neutrik’s rearTWIST BNC Connectors exceed these requirements and will be on display at the upcoming NAB 2009 (Booth N7929).
Neutrik sweep tested the rearTWIST BNC to guarantee a jitter-free transmission, even with uncompressed HD 1080p signals. The results of an independent laboratory study have shown excellent return loss values up to 4.5 GHz, considerably exceeding the SMPTE requirements.
Neutrik’s rearTWIST BNC features a machined body with a true 75Ω design that meets today’s stringent HDTV/DVD requirements. Its unique ergonomic design features maximized connection comfort in high-density applications. Rear boot color coding options are available with the optional BST-BNC*.
“With today’s ever-changing broadcast needs, Neutrik is proud to remain at the very forefront in broadcast connectivity technologies,” says Fred Besnoff, product applications manager at Neutrik USA. “Neutrik’s new rearTWIST BNC is a testament to our commitment to providing connectors that meet the very latest and even future requirements in broadcast trends.”
Neutrik manufactures a wide array of XLR connectors and receptacles, jacks and plugs, speaker connectors and accessories for the professional audio industry. Neutrik USA is located at 195 Lehigh Avenue, Lakewood, NJ 08701.
