VDM-5 DIGITAL INTERCONNECT: 75 Ω COAX Noise-Dissipation System d Hard Cell Foam 24 AWG Solid 100% Perfect-Surface Silver (PSS) Conductor Hard-Cell Foam (HCF) Insulation Noise-Dissipation System Silver-Plated Braid Nylon Braid - Black/White 100% Solid PSS Silver Center Conductor Cold-Welded Silver-Plated AudioQuest VDM Series cables minimize distortion across an extremely wide bandwidth. A 75Ω cable is a conduit which must carry relatively low frequency analog video (Composite, up to 4.2MHz), super-sensitive digital audio (SP/DIF, up to 24.576 MHz), uncompressed High Definition video (HDTV, up to 750 MHz), or cable TV/broadband (CATV, up to 1 GHz). VDM (preterminated) and HD6 (use with ITC connectors) cables carry all these signals. Various percentages of silver-plating used in other VDM models allow much higher performance than bare copper. VDM-5’s Solid Perfect-Surface Silver provides the highest possible performance. The combination conductive PVC and Silver-Plated braid shield significantly lowers distortion. Direct-Silver Plated RCA plugs are cold-welded to VDM-5, commingling the molecules for an ideal connection. BNC connectors are also available. NOISE-DISSIPATION SYSTEM: 100% shield coverage is easy. Preventing captured RF Interference from modulating the equipment’s ground-reference requires AQ’s Noise-Dissipation System. Metal and Carbon-Loaded synthetics prevent most RFI from reaching the equipment’s ground-plane. DIRECTIONS: When using VDM-5 for digital audio, please be sure to observe the directional arrows. Video is not sensitive to directionality.
