DATA COMMUNICATIONS
Low Skew 4 Pair UTP Cables for RGB Video
General Cable’s Carol® Brand Low Skew UTP Cable is manufactured for your RGB video and
Digital CCTV camera needs. While the basic elements of the Low Skew Cable construction are
similar to a UTP Cable (Category cable) used for data transmission, the design of the pair twists
is the secret to delivering information in a manner necessary for streaming high-quality video.
Your cable selection should be based on your application’s electrical and mechanical needs,
optimizing your system performance and cost. All Carol Brand coaxial cable and UTP cables are
manufactured to the highest standards, providing low structural return loss (signal noise in the
form of Echo), providing maximum performance.
The cable performance chart shown below is intended to provide comparative data to assist you in
choosing the right cable. The values are based on maximum distance while maintaining minimum
acceptable skew. Note that TIA/EIA standards for RGB require a maximum of 40 nsec per 328' and
Cat 5e maximum of 45 nsec per 328' for Time Delay Skew (the difference between the fastest and
slowest signal). Carol Brand Low Skew Cable allows for a compact, cost-effective cable solution
over considerably longer cable run options. A prudent design also considers maximum allowed
attenuation based on active and passive components and installation considerations within your
system design. A more typical installation length is 328 feet, which allows for optimum signal
clarity and crisp, brilliant video resolution.
