Can a 12G SDI cable work with 1080p signals?

Hey guys,

I just ordered some SDI cables and just realized I placed the order for 12G SDI cables instead of 3G, can I still use these cables with a Blackmagic Design SDI-HDMI converter transmitting 1080p 60 signal?

Yes, that just means it’s a higher grade cable, you can probably have your 3G signals work for a longer length than on a 3G grade cable.


Great, thanks for your feedback!

Further explanation:
3G-SDI = 3Gbit/Second transfer speed
12G-SDI = 12GBit/Second transfer speed
