Belden 1855A-1000 Overview

The Belden 1855A Sub Miniature Video Coax 23 AWG 1000 ft Orange is a precision broadcast video cable for analog and digital signals. It can be used for narrow-band composite through wide-band SDI transmissions.

Stranding is solid and the conductor is bare copper. Insulation material is gas-injected foam high density polyethylene and the outer shield is of two layers, with layer 1 made of aluminum foil-polyester tape-aluminum foil and featuring 100% coverage and layer 2 made of tinned copper with 95% coverage.

Max pull tension is at 36 lbs and bend radius at 1.5". Impedance is 75 Ohm and overall diameter .159". Ten different colors are available to choose from, with black exclusively offering outdoor and aerial suitability.

  • Precision broadcast video cable for analog and digital signals
  • For narrow-band composite through wide-band SDI transmissions
  • 10 colors can be chosen from, with black good for outdoor / aerial use

Does anyone use this for events? We need 150' runs of 3G SDI. Thanks
Asked by: chris
I use this as internal cabling on my racks. It is good cable, however I would not trust on long lengths both for its shielding and for it’s thin profile which makes it less resistant to breakage. For long and exposed cable runs like that, in 3G, I would recommend Belden 1694a. It’s pretty much the industry standard at this point for broadcast. Very well shielded and very durable. It’s a little stiff at first, but will train to a nice coil over time. You can also use canare connectors as well if you like, you do not have to stick with the belden bnc connectors... but either will work just fine when terminating the cables.
