12 GHZ COAX, THE NEW FRONTIER: EXPLORING 4K COAX CABLE TECHNOLOGY

When will copper fail us? From the beginnings of electronic media, broadcast engineers have struggled with the bandwidth limitations of interconnecting cable. When 4K and other high data rate services first appeared, it seemed only fiber could handle the bandwidth. But we thought the same when SDI was introduced. Belden first introduced 4794R and now 4855R. Will these be the new 8281 and 9209? Have we reached the limit of electrons in cable, or are there new technologies that will extend the convenience of cable and connectors into the next generation of broadcast?
