  • Is RG6 cable ok for the composite feed to the Blackmagic Design Analog to SDI Mini Converter ?

    In theory yes the RG6 cable is okay to use with the Blackmagic Analog to SDI Mini Converter , as long as the signal is stable and the distance to travel is less than 10 metres. Here is a description below.

    The most commonly recognized variety of RG-6 is cable television (CATV) distribution coax, used to route cable television signals to and within homes, and RG-6 type cables have become the standard for CATV, mostly replacing the smaller RG-59, in recent years. CATV distribution coax typically has a copper-clad steel (CCS) center conductor and a combination aluminum foil/aluminium braid shield, typically with low coverage (about 60%). RG-6 type cables are also used in professional video applications, carrying either base band analogue video signals or serial digital interface (SDI) signals; in these applications, the center conductor is ordinarily solid copper, the shielding is much heavier (typically aluminium foil/95% copper braid), and tolerances are more tightly controlled, to improve impedance stability.
