BetterCables® Silver Serpent® VGA BreakoutEngineered for video excellence. Our vga cables are suitable for critical/long runs – even with HDTV signals. Perfect for HDTV, Home Theater PCs, video scalers and any situation where signal quality should not be compromised. This cable enables your equipment to reproduce the best color saturation, black level and detail possible. We doubt there is a higher performing component cable available ANYWHERE at ANY price.
"If you're assembling a home theatre system, NOTHING beats BetterCables for the highest quality video and sound!" (Don Woodward- Fellow, SONICblue, Inc)
The cable features five 75-ohm Solid 99.999% pure Silver coated copper center conductors, hard-cell high-density foam PE insulation, 78 percent velocity of propagation, low 17.3 pF per ft capacitance, and triple shielding for unmatched RF and EMI interference protection. This cable is also NEC CL2 rated for in-wall use. BREAKOUT TO BNC OR RCA CONNECTORS
Installations that use VGA (RGB) require special parameters in the cable design. Chief among them is 'timing'. Since the signal is split into red, green and blue primary colors, 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. Bettercable® design guarantees a maximum of 2.5 nanoseconds per 100 ft. This is ten times better than the broadcast maximum of 40 nanoseconds. What this means is the sharpest, clearest picture available.
Compare this to many RGB cables which don't specify timing, or where the constituent cables are not even close to 75 ohms. This cable also features a 90% braid and 100% foil shield. This gives the user maximum protection from outside interference. This can be especially helpful where these cables are used with VGA devices, which runs at very high frequencies, often 100 MHz, 200 MHz or even higher. Inexpensive RGB cables often have only a low-coverage braid shield, minimally effective at low frequencies (below 50 MHz).
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.
This cable may also be used in situations where a hd15 to 3 RCA (Y/Pb/Pr) cable is needed. This will not convert VGA (which is RGB) to Component Video (Y/Pb/Pr)! But if your device with the 15-pin connector accepts component video, this cable will work. Call if you have any questions.
