Canare has launched what it claims is the first four-channel coaxial connector for linking 4K-related equipment. The new connector will enable the transmission of four 3G-SDI 4K signals with a single connector and one cable.
The connector plug is composed of four 75-ohm connector units, which can be plugged in simultaneously with an easy push, pull and lock system.
The connectors are compact, solid and lightweight, and are suitable for outdoor use. The receptacle connector units are compatible with IEC’s DIN 1.0/2.3 connector plugs. At 3GHz, the return loss is 20dB or greater.
The connector should be available shortly after IBC in three models: one connector plug, one connector jack, and one receptacle.
