The cable you listed uses 179DT which is marketed for use in broadcast trucks, etc. It uses a solid center conductor which concerns me in terms of flexibility and durability for our uses. When it comes to 3ft lengths on camera I am sure its fine but as a link to video village I want as flexible as possible. I have never had a problem using 9221(the one I listed) with HD-SDI. At the short lengths we use I just don't think its a problem. If I was doing a lot of recording off camera or live work I might be a little more critical, but for what I use it for it works great.

Haven't actually tried the DT I just looked at the specs so I could be missing something.
