12G MCX connectors provide versatility to broadcast industry

Amphenol RF has announced the further expansion of its 12G product line, with the addition of MCX connectors designed specifically for 4K/Ultra-HD broadcast applications.

This expansion features both PCB and cable mount configurations designed with the reliable push-on coupling mechanism. The MCX connectors join a portfolio of BNC and HD-BNC products that have been optimised to support data transfer rates up to 12Gbps which enables the transmission of high resolution uncompressed video signals.

The addition of 75 ohm 12G MCX connectors brings versatility to the current line, according to Amphenol, allowing customers to terminate to the board in designs where the BNC or HD-BNC is not able to be mounted directly. Utilising the MCX connector allows the 12G signal to be carried from the panel to the PCB using a single transmission line without compromising the quality of the video.

Applications for these MCX connectors include 4K/8K video cameras, mobile broadcast, digital signage, remote viewing and video encoders and routers.
