Quad for Video Signal?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Can someone tell me if 18 AWG RG6U, Quad coaxial cable with aluminum shielding is suitable for video?

And is there any publication or chart that can provide some guidance in this regard?

Sure is!
But... for most applications. Plain old RG6 is fine.

Overkill.

I ask because someone on the technical staff of a major cable mfr informed me that Quad coax with Aluminum shielding should not be used for video. The application involves 100 ft of Quad from a video source to a display monitor.

Solid Copper Center Conductor is the cable that is best for baseband video. As gregzoll wrote, quad-shield cable is overkill, but it'll work fine.
