HD-BNC Connectors

Engineered to enhance electrical and mechanical performance, the HD-BNC connector line features the trusted, push and turn interface of a traditional BNC, providing tactile feedback and a positive lock for quick and guaranteed mating.

The HD-BNC product line delivers both true 50 and 75 ohm performance in a footprint 4 times smaller than traditional BNC connectors. Using the same cable prep and termination specifications of legacy broadcast connectors makes adopting HD-BNC seamless.

High performance 12G 75 ohm products are available to support 4K-SDI and Ultra High-Definition video.
