Red Series Plasma Grade video multicore Back
Van Damme Red Series Video multicores are 4 and 5 way versions of the Van Damme standard 75 Ohm coaxes. Designed for use in the Presentation and Broadcast industries, they are commonly used for the transmission of video signals such as RGBHV and RGB Sync over longer distances - up to 100 metres for analogue video signals. They are flexible but also very robust and are ideal for multiple rig and de-rig situations due to the attention paid to their construction, overall diameter and weight.

  • Extended transmission of RGBHV and RGB Sync video signals
  • Can be used with confidence at 100 metres
Application notes
  • Suitable for SDI use up to 138 metres
  • Uses RG59 type crimp connectors
Transmission length guidelines
These transmission lengths have been calculated throughout to a maximum attenuation of -30dB at the frequency corresponding to half of the actual signal data rate for SMPTE 259. SMPTE and others advise that 90% of this cable length introduces an appropriate safety factor- the chart below includes an 80% safety factor as jitter and other factors can increase dramatically in the last 20% of a cable run.
