Re: prob with nano

Dear Cees,

If you can post the manufacturer and part number of the BNC connector, then I will be happy to research it.

While I am confident that the "whte ring" means that it is not true 75 ohms, we have a way to actually prove it.

We have a very expensive test instrument in our lab. We could, with one of the cables, send a proper HD-SDI through it, then analyze the quality of the signal coming out of the other end.

Of course, I realize that it is not practical for you to send a cable to us.

50 Ohm connectors and cables have the potential to cause problems.

We advise against using them.
Hi Dan,

What about these, if you google B37P28J999X99 37528

Thanks.

Re: prob with nano

Dear Anthony,

These items are listed as 75 Ohm, but they have the white plastic collar that is typical of 50 Ohm in the illustration.

The wording could be wrong, the illustration could be wrong, or, of course, I could be wrong.

nanoFlash.net sells 90 Degree True 75 Ohm BNC adapters. I know that these are 75 Ohms, and they do not have the white plastic collar.

Re: prob with nano

Don't know about the cable :), but the connector is the correct 75 ohm type.
