These adapters are based on the same design as those used in MUSA HD patch panels. They are a completely new version of the MUSA, re-designed for 12G ultra high definition, 3G/1.5G high definition, standard definition and analogue video applications. The performance for the microMUSA exceed the requirements of SMPTE ST 2082-1 making them suitable for composite and component video, 270 Mb/s SDI, uncompressed 1080i or 1080p HD-SDI video and 4K UHD (2160P60) video up to 12GHz. The performance for the MUSA options exceed the requirements of SMPTE292M and SMPTE424M making them suitable for composite and component video, 270 Mb/s SDI and uncompressed 1080i or 1080p HD-SDI video up to 3Gb/s respectively. Also suitable for unbalanced 75ohm AES digital audio.
Body parts are nickel-plated and centre contacts are gold plated giving a smooth mating action and overcoming the 'sticktion' and tarnishing of the now obsolete silver MUSA.
Terminology used in adapter descriptions:
|MUSA HD female (same as U-link and patchcord connector)
|MUSA HD male (same as panel connector)
