Broadcasters require an easy-to-use cabling solution that is flexible enough to accomodate their specific HDTV infrastructure upgrades needs. Ensuring optimal performance and repeatability coupled with years of termination expertise means that Mohawk is a great cabling choice for broadcast-level video assemblies and triaxial cabling needs.
Mohawk took its first steps into the broadcast sector over 30 years ago. They started working with RCA, and became the first company to design and build TV81 cable and assemblies for the first live color TV broadcast. Since then, they have expanded on a long list of “firsts” in the industry, while becoming the preferred OEM cable and assembly supplier for the major camera manufacturers. Whether it is studio based or monitor platform, you can maintain that precise camera-cable performance throughout your broadcast application. They have a full line of quality professional broadcast digital signal processing cables and assemblies available including high definition SMPTE styles, fiber, multicore, and triax. Mohawk Cabling offers the only UL safety-listed plenum fiber optic cable for HDTV – so your picture can be transmitted flawlessly and safely from studio to audiences around the world.
Mohawk prides themselves on flexibility and working with both customers and distributors to design and provide custom made assemblies. They deliver more types of camera cables, assemblies, and accessories than any other manufacturer, domestic or international. An example of Mohawks attention to well-engineered cabling can be seen in their LAN-Trak OSP cable line. Because even a small amount of moisture or water in the cable will degrade the electrical performance of a Category cable, Mohawk's LAN-Trak OSP cables are designed for exposure to the elements. Jacketed with a black UV-resistant polyethylene, they employ a craft-friendly semi-dry flooding material that cleans easily from the cable core. Traditional petroleum-based gels such as "icky-pick" result in hard-to-clean and time-consuming cable prep time. This thixotropic gel has a dry, soft texture that is dermally safe and cleans easily with citrus-based cleaners. The result is faster cable prep time, quicker clean-ups and happier technicians.
