BetterCablesŪ Silver SerpentŪ  RGB Reference

BetterCablesŪ Silver SerpentŪ RGB Reference

As with all of our cables, the Silver SerpentŪ REFERENCE RGBHV Video Cable is engineered for video excellence. Our installers and dealers have used this cable for a couple of months with nothing but praise for this cable. This is a FUTURE-PROOF, extremely high bandwidth (3.0 GHz) multi-channel cable for the most demanding situations. High-definition TV, plasma displays, scalers and projectors deliver eye-popping pictures like never before.

"I hooked up the Silver Serpent REFERENCE Component cable and all I can say is WOW, WOW and triple WOW!"(Claudio Meira, Founder of Agoraquest.com)

Like the other Silver SerpentŪ cables, this RGBHV video cable features SOLID 99.999% pure silver coated copper conductors, unparalleled impedance tolerance (75-ohm + or - 1.5-ohm) and terminated with precision 75-ohm RCAs (or 75-ohm BNCs). This cable is NEC CMR fire-rated.

Installations that use component video require special parameters in the cable design. Chief among them is TIMING. Since the signal is split into 5-channels (Red/Green/Blue/Horizontal Sync/Vertical Sync) and then reassembled, the signals must arrive at the same time at the destination. The more the timing variance, the less detail can be resolved in the resulting picture. The BetterCablesŪ Silver SerpentŪ RGBHV design guarantees a maximum of 2.5 nanoseconds per 100 ft. This is ten times better than the broadcast maximum of 40 nanoseconds.

The combination of timing, low-attenuation, low-SRL makes this a world-class component video cable with no equal at ANY PRICE

How is the REFERENCE improved over the standard Silver SerpentsŪ?:
  1. Improved Dielectric-has Nitrogen-injected HDPE insulation.
  2. Has 500% larger conductor.
  3. Larger bandwidth-sweep tested to 3 GHz.
  4. Better shielded-more coverage on braided shield (95% vs. 90%
  5. EXTREMELY low attenuation- 5.86 DB at 720 MHz (100 foot)
  6. Lower capacitance-16.2 pF/ft
  7. Higher fire rating-CMR
  8. Faster Nom Velocity of Propagation-83%
  9. Amazing conductor DCR 9.0 ohms/1000 feet - critical measurement of overall frequency roll-off (lower is better).
