Commscope UH58360 Ultrahome Composite Cable

Composite video requires a very special cable design to be fully realized. All the parts of the signal, red, green, and blue primary color parts, synchronization pulses, and other signal constituents, must get from the origination device to the destination. Such a cable must be low loss, low capacitance, and very stable in impedance to deliver these signal parts to the destination device, such as a video monitor.

Bettercables design starts with a solid 99.999% pure Silver coated copper conductor specially drawn for great precision at the required diameter (18 AWG). This large conductor allows low-frequency signal, such as baseband video from a VCR, for extra long runs with very low loss. Next, the conductor has a dielectric (insulation) extruded of Nitrogen gas-injected foam. This provides the lowest capacitance (16.2 pF/ft) and the highest velocity (83% the speed of light) and surpasses most professional broadcast coaxes.

Finally a combination braid-foil shield is applied. This includes a 95% coverage braid, as high as can be manufactured, with a 100% foil shield. This combination of low and high-frequency shielding makes this cable ideal from DC to 3 GHz. This range covers all video applications, including CATV/broadband, and even DSS satellite applications. A rugged PVC jacket covers the cable. Truly the top-of-the-line for video and RF distribution as well as SDI applications. This is a true 75-ohm cable (plus or minus 1.5 ohms) with impedance-matched connectors.

NOTE THAT THE CABLES LONGER THAN 3 METERS DO NOT HAVE THE DECORATIVE SILVER MESH APPLIED. The mesh is not shielding and does not affect the signal quality.

RCA/RCA is standard for consumer grade equipment (dvd players/tvs/vcrs)
