Belden unveils new microphone cables

Belden has extended its line of broadcast products in the EMEA region with the launch of two Brilliance microphone cables. Brilliance 1776 – Belden’s strongest microphone cable to date – and compact digital microphone cable Brilliance 2221 offer maximum toughness and flexibility for analogue and digital applications. Brilliance 1776 is a super-strong analogue microphone cable capable of withstanding the rough handling and constant use of studio and live environments. It is the strongest microphone cable ever manufactured by Belden, featuring a minimum pull strength of 113kg. The cable is engineered with high strength custom alloy conductors and a tough EPDM rubber jacket, making it ideal for rental houses and other applications where microphone cables face repeat use and damage. Brilliance 1776 is available as cost saving put-ups of 75 meters (250 feet). Belden’s second cable introduction is an ideal solution for applications where full-size microphone cables are too large. The Brilliance 2221 Compact Digital Microphone Cable is small enough for hand-held solid-state recording devices (SSD) with miniature microphone connectors, such as those from Lemo, Neutrik or Switchcraft, or those using Bantam or TT jacks as the balanced line input.  Brilliance 2221 is suitable for use as an analogue or digital patch cable where Bantam or TT patch connectors are used. It can also be used as a DMX lighting control cable when small size and flexibility are required. Werner Eich, vertical marketing manager broadcast for Belden EMEA comments: “Brilliance 1776 and 2221 microphone cables are setting new performance levels in their respective fields, and in doing so reflect Belden’s focus on delivering broadcast products with the high quality and reliability to meet the signaling transmission needs of musicians, performers and the AV industry as a whole.”
