Belden 8281 or 9104 for HD-SDI?

Sponsored ads sustain DV Info Net

Hi Everyone,

Apologies for asking, however I get a bit confused on appropriate cables and what to look for.

A friend of mine recently upgraded his equipment to HD-SDI (and higher). A few years ago he was given a reel of Belden 8281 and 9104 cable. Would this be suitable for HD-SDI (and higher) transmission? What would be the best use for this in that environment? The 9104 seems flexible enough to use for camera runs, but the 8281 cable seems a bit too stiff for normal every day use.

Both are RG59, 75 ohm.

Here are the spec sheets:

Many Thanks
