See Belden at IBC 2013 – and be amazed by our scope


Preparations are well underway for our booth at IBC 2013.  I have always enjoyed being at the show, focusing on Belden’s cable and connectivity products (“the most trusted brand for Broadcast cables”).

This year, however, we have so much more to offer. Since Belden’s acquisition of Miranda Technologies, we are now also able to provide hardware and software solutions for television broadcast, cable, satellite and IPTV.

Our booth will reflect our expanded capability to deliver world-class solutions for immediate and uninterrupted transmission, flawless HD, 3G and 4K audio and video streams. We will also be introducing some new products.

To highlight just two of them, our new Duobond® Plus HD Digital Video Cables with bonded foil over the dielectric will make the termination of Belden’s 1-Piece HD BNC very easy and much faster than traditional methods with 3-Piece BNCs. It is the absolute reliable combination to deliver the needed performance!

Moreover we will be launching our extremely rugged and flexible Belden CatSnake® Tactical Heavy Duty Category 6A shielded data cables, which are designed for use in high traffic areas in a broadcast studio or for use out of doors, in broadcast truck applications, and for portable, professional audio/video use.

And if that is not enough, visitors to our booth have the opportunity to meet Steve Lampen, Belden’s Manager for Multimedia Technology and Product Line – Entertainment Products. Steve is a prolific blogger, public speaker and writer, and was named “Educator of the Year” by the Society of Broadcast Engineers in 2011.

So if you are looking for maximum reliability and performance in your broadcasts, be sure to visit our booth and see for yourself what Belden has to offer.  My team and I will be delighted to see you at the show.

Steve Lampen Talks About New Cable Products at Recent NAB

At NAB our Corporate Communications Director, Eric Ehlers, shot a little video of me discussing some of our latest cable innovations. We posted it on LinkedIn but I thought I’d like to share it with you all in my blog as well. Let me know if you have any questions or ideas for new products you’d like to see by dropping a note in the comment box below.

Tradeshow abstractWhen it comes to tradeshows and presentations, there are two busy times of the year. March-April-May, with the NAB show in the middle of that, and September and October. On September 5th at SBE Chapter 68 in Birmingham, Alabama, I will speak about “10 Gigabit Networking for Audio and Video Applications.” You can check out the details by searching for Birmingham, Alabama in the ‘chapters’ section at Would love to see you there.

If you’re on the other side of the pond, IBC, the second largest broadcast tradeshow (after NAB) happens September 7-11 at the RAI Center in Amsterdam. We will be showing all our new products, including some made in Europe specifically for our European market. You can find us in Hall 1, Booth C21. Read more »
