SDI Braided Cable


A fancy take on a camera department staple. Boot color will match braid color unless you specify special boot colors on the checkout page.

Includes one pre-terminated braided 12G SDI cable. See something you want customized that isn’t an option on this page? Contact me.

All of my products are open source! Here’s what you need to make this yourself:


  1. Cut Belden 4694F to desired length.
  2. Cut boot to allow wider girth cable.
  3. Load braid on cable stock, leaving about 1/2″ extra on each end.
  4. Load boot over braid.
  5. Pull back braid to leave exposed cable.
  6. Load RearTwist components onto end and crimp.
  7. Align braid on crimp collet with about 1/4″ gap between braid and BNC terminal.
  8. Add super glue to braid.
  9. Add about 1″ electrical tape at 3/8″ width around braid end, squishing super glue beneath it for reinforcement.
  10. Slide boot over adhesive section.
  11. Repeat steps 4-10 for end two. Instead of aligning pre-cut braid to collet, use a flush cutter to trim braid.
  12. QC cable using 12G instrument.
