Elvid's Slim SDI Cable RG-179, 3' in length, is designed to carry up to 12 Gb/s data rates to support uncompressed UHD 4K video signals. At the same time it's suitable as a solution for studio patching applications.

The cable features low-profile, locking BNC connectors that offer a trustworthy connection between a camera and video peripheral such as a monitor, external recorder, or switcher. Due to its slim diameter and durable FEP jacket, the cable is flexible enough to rout around gear without tangling or knotting for a clutter-free camera rig, patch bay, or machine rack. Molded strain relief secures the critical point between the cable and connector and assures a trouble-free signal transfer, even if there's a tug or strain on the cable.

Low-Profile BNC Connectors
The cable's low-profile BNC connectors and secure locking connections are preferred for professional and critical applications.
Slim and Lightweight
Ideal for use on camera rigs and equipment racks, the RG-179 cable will weave around gear, patchbays, and switchers for clutter-free connections.
Tangle Resistant
Even though the cable is flexible, it won't tangle or knot, and it will keep areas with multiple cables free of cable clutter.
Supports 12G Data Rates
This cable supports 12 Gb/s data rates, which makes it ideal for high resolution and color fidelity of UHD 4K signals.
Molded Strain Relief
Molded strain relief keeps this durable cable secure at the critical point where the cable meets the connector.

At this length of 1-3ft, is there any benefit to using RG-6 or RG-59 instead of these? I'm installing a rack full of 4k video equipment and don't want to lose quality because of the cable, but these look appealing if that is not the case.
