A new breed of cable and connector systems are helping to change tomorrow’s camera and surveillance technologies. Today’s charge coupled device, (CCD), technologies and CMOS chips are rapidly improving their higher resolution capabilities. Parallel chip receivers are also extending image capture breadth and resolution. As a result, processing speeds are doubling with larger image frames and the use of increased frame rates from 30 and 60 frames per second to over 100 frames per second. This is driving digital signal data rates from the, (older), 5 Gigabits/second to above 10 gigabits/second. To handle this rush for higher resolution simultaneously with higher
speeds, new cable and connector designs are required to deliver quality signals to the image processor and storage systems.
