COAX Connectors Ltd is proud to announce that its microMUSA 12G 4K is a Best New Hardware InfrastructureTechnology Winner in the 2019 NAB Show Product of the Year Awards. The first official awards that recognize innovative new products at NAB Show, the program recognizes the most significant and promising new products and technologies showcased by Exhibitors at the 2019 NAB Show in Las Vegas, NV.

The 12G, 48-way microMUSA by COAX Connectors is the world’s first 1U 48-way 12G video patchbay system. This newly designed 12G 48-way patchbay system includes panels, U-links and patchcords. The system delivers 4K performance exceeding SMPTE ST2082-1, and is suitable for composite and component video. The rear of the 12G, 48-way microMUSA is populated with 48 high-density True 75 ohm 12G Micro BNC (HD-BNC) connectors, delivering full 12G performance whist saving space and reducing weight. Patchcords for the 12G, 48-way microMUSA use 12G rated cable. Correct mating is easily achieved thanks to a detent feature in the connectors. U-link bodies are made of cast metal and include finger grips for ease of insertion or extraction.

The 12G 48-way microMUSA patchbay system delivers a much higher density of 12G connectors in a 1U panel than has ever been possible before. Use of 48 Micro BNC (HD-BNC) connectors at the rear of the panel not only saves space, it also reduces weight, something of real benefit in OB trucks and other places where space is at a premium.

NAB Show Product of the Year Award Winners were selected by a panel of industry experts in 16 categories and announced at an awards ceremony and cocktail reception at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort on April 10. To be eligible for an award, nominated products and technologies needed to be on display at the 2019 NAB Show for the first time and available for delivery in calendar year 2019.

“Nominees like COAX Connectors Ltd are revolutionizing the way people experience media and entertainment,” said NAB Executive Vice President of Conventions and Business Operations Chris Brown. “The 2019 NAB Show Product of the Year Awards highlight the best of what’s new at the premier launchpad for breakthroughs at the intersection of media, entertainment and technology.”

Emma Ashton, Marketing Manager at COAX Connectors Ltd commented, “COAX Connectors is delighted to receive this award which recognises the innovative design of its new microMUSA 12G 4K 48-way video patchbay system”.
