Consumers just want more HD video everywhere they go. The migration from 4G to 5G enables live streaming video consumption everywhere the wireless network reaches.
Faster bandwidths via cable or fiber to the home provide the pipe to support the 4K/UHDTV products that are common online and in the local electronics store.
HD studio cameras feed video headends at faster data rates. Live cameras in the field source HD video via satellite to the studio. News feeds are combined and transmitted via satellite communications at increasing speeds to consumers.
12G-SDI: An Evolution in Video Broadcast
What’s fueling these advances in video broadcast? The broadcast video ecosystem is changing, resulting in increased demands for high-capacity HD and UHD digital transmission.
This occurs through today’s SDI infrastructures and the emerging video-over-IP infrastructures. Video has transformed from being an analog 6 MHz bandwidth signal to a 12 Gbps digital data stream.
As signaling transitioned to 12 Gbps 4K UHD-SDI standards, the demand for meeting stringent return loss requirements up to 12 GHz emerged. This requires expanded capabilities throughout the broadcast video chain, from camera to consumer.
Coax cable for 4K single-link UHD video cable for 12G-SDI signal transmission has also emerged. Samtec’s portfolio of 12G-SDI solutions answers both needs.
