12G-SDI Broadcast Video

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.

Samtec has the largest variety of 12G-SDI products available, including right-angle and low-profile options.
