Broadcasting in the digital age has created new ways for reaching viewers. As distribution and consumption is shifting to include Video-on-Demand (VOD) and TV Everywhere (TVE) platforms, hardware and workflow processes are evolving. Increased functionality with continued scalability, greater throughput, lower latency, and less power consumption are impacting broadcast video infrastructures. Samtec offers a full line of high-performance solutions to meet these challenges.
12G-SDI, 75 Ohm INTERCONNECTS
Optimizing the Entire Signal Channel
Samtec offers a wide variety of interconnect solutions for Broadcast Video architectures.
Broadcast equipment and camera capabilities are evolving rapidly. The continued need for higher resolution, higher frames rates, and managing latency while increasing throughput within more compact designs is driving the need for optimized connector solutions. Samtec’s 75 Ohm BNC, 12G-SDI optimized products (BNC7T Series) are used in high-end studio cameras and provide input/output functionality to the switcher, enabling camera video/audio and talkback. BNC7T Series features an enhanced low-profile, right-angle design that is ideal for high-volume pick-and-place automation in high-density broadcast video applications. High-Density BNC (HDBNC Series) pick-and-place solutions are also available.
Samtec offers a variety of interconnect solutions supporting studio and live broadcast camera needs. Products include our complete family of 12G-SDI connector and cable solutions, high-speed board-to-board and edge card, high-density power, and board stacking interconnects.
Creative film professionals are using discrete monitoring devices with recording and playback for faster, efficient and higher quality production workflows. Samtec’s Edge Rate® mezzanine products are used in a variety of these systems due to their rugged, high-speed design. Edge Rate® connectors offer a contact wipe up to 1.5 mm for a reliable connection. Pitch options include 0.50 mm, 0.635 mm or 0.80 mm. Stack heights from 5 mm to 18 mm are available.
Samtec offers a variety of interconnect solutions supporting advanced equipment functionality. Solutions include high-speed board-to-board and edge card, flexible stacking, 12G-SDI cables and connectors, and high-speed cable assemblies.
Managing multi-video format sources in a single workflow, while also considering backup, redundancy and cloud management solutions is a large undertaking. This requires routing data packets through a large network and maintaining high data transfer speeds to ensure quality live streaming and storage.
Samtec’s AcceleRate® slim cable system is an ideal solution for managing these connectivity demands.
Samtec offers a variety of high-density high-performance solutions to support advanced routing for broadcast needs, including 12G-SDI cables and connectors, high-speed backplane, and high-performance Flyover® cable systems.
This video from DesignCon 2022 shows a proof-of-concept for an on-package, or near-package, direct-drive electrical channel that can support 100 G + signaling. These drives could be used in mid-board optical and copper designs using Samtec Flyover® cable assemblies or mezzanine ...
My father served 25+ years as a Sergeant in the United States Air Force, and as a military kid I never really understood what his job entailed. Honestly, my only thought was “cool, my dad is traveling all over the world…”. Little did I know the intense and highly sensitive mechan...
The Internet of Things is bringing with it new requirements for safety and security. Using the IoT, operators can benefit from complex and distributed installations. In addition, autonomous systems are becoming increasingly important in the functioning of modern industry. From m...
We spent most of April finishing up a couple of large applications that were built on legacy code. Those are now updated and live on the website. We also rolled out a couple of content page upgrades, and some back-end speed optimizations to various areas of the website. New Mater...
“Hello there!” Any Star Wars nerd worth their weight in spice from Kessel knows who said that. Rightfully, Disney+ released a new full-length Obi-Wan Kenobi trailer. If you haven’t watched it yet, you should! It would be a lie to say that I am not geeked about this trailer and th...
