BNC Cables

BNC Cables are available for a wide variety of applications, including RGBHV video over 5 BNC cables, Component video over 3 BNC cables, and Composite video over 1 BNC cable. BNC is also used in professional broadcast settings for transmission of HD-SDI signal which uses 1 BNC cable.

BNC connectors are round plugs with a bayonet-style locking system, used on coaxial cables. BNC plugs have good impedance characteristics, and their locking mechanism keeps them securely in place once connected. Because they are more expensive and harder to connect than RCA plugs, they are often used for higher-end and/or professional audio/video equipment. They are very common in CCTV and surveillance camera applications. There are many popular theories explaining the acronym "BNC", but the most likely is "Bayonet-Neill-Concelman", which refers to the two gentlemen that developed it years ago (Paul Neill from Bell Labs, and Carl Concelman from Amphenol). The two most common uses for BNC connectors are in a 3-BNC (RGB) component video and 5-BNC (RGBHV) component video cable. This component video interface is the most common extended definition video interface in use on contemporary consumer products. Component connections send one luminance and two phase-opposite chrominance signals on three 75 Ohm coaxial cables. Wholly analog, the 770.3 component interface boasts the same robust nature as RGBHV.
