Do I need HD/SDI cables?

I want to take an HD/SDI feed from my camera to a switcher. I have regular BNC video cables and I was surfing the net and found HD/SDI BNC cables. Do I really need to upgrade? If so why? Thanks for your help.

Thanks Brian. I'm looking at doing 100-500 Ft runs. Does anyone know what would work best. I see a lot of RG6 and RG 59. Does it matter, or just spend good money on Technec or Canare?
