Belden the goliath of cable manufacturing has produced what I believe to be a revolution in the distribution of Ultra HD distribution via traditional Ethernet cabling.
One of the main benefits of the Belden cable is that it has one outer foil screen unlike Using a Cat 7 cable where each pair has a foil screen the time to install the Belden is greatly reduced therefore saving on the cost of installation.
Delivering Ultra HD signals down a whopping 100m run this makes the modern AV & IT Cabling through building distribution a doddle!
Here are some other key fasts:
Small & Flexible
Belden’s 4K UHD Media Cable is up to 25% smaller than other HDBaseT™ cabling solutions, such as CAT 7A, allowing for better utilization of rack space, conduit fill capacity and cable trays. Built with a durable, corrugated, foil shield and a helical drain, Belden’s 4K UHD Media cables are extremely flexible with a very tight bend radius.
Resistant to rigors of installation
The pairs are made using Belden’s patented Bonded Pair technology. The cable is rated to withstand 45 lbs. of pull tension, much more than the typical 25 lbs. of similar networking cables.
Interoperable Across 4K Equipment
There is no need to buy a different cable based upon brand of equipment manufacturer. Our test lab included several different brands of equipment and the Belden 4K UHD Media Cable is interoperable with all, providing the best results that equipment could deliver.
Helpfully Belden have produced a short video introducing this great product.
