Products and History
The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences awarded its prestigious Technology and Engineering Emmy® to Nemal Electronics International for Standardization and Commercialization of Television-Broadcast, Hybrid Electrical and Fiber Optic Camera Cable and Connectors. This most prestigious reward recognizes the contributions that Nemal has made to the industry through its extensive development and improvement of SMPTE cabling systems, beginning more than 20 years ago, through its latest innovation, (UL) CMP Plenum Rated Stadium 4 Cable.
CABLING SOLUTIONS FOR DEMANDING INDUSTRIES
Working with Nemal, you’ll quickly discover that our products and our people both excel in situations where standard solutions will not suffice. For projects that call for something beyond what the mass-market cable industry can currently provide, companies in every sector call Nemal to engineer the next generation of interconnect solutions.
Nemal’s been helping broadcasters meet the ever-increasing demand for fast, reliable transmission of audio, video, and data since the earliest days of the digital revolution. In today’s environment, Nemal continues to lead the market by developing products that enable broadcasters to meet new and rapidly emerging challenges in this field.
Recent Nemal design innovations include developing advanced fiber-optic camera control systems to meet the needs that broadcast facilities will experience over the next decade. Nemal is honored to have been chosen to manufacture custom audio, video, and triaxial cables with jacket colors to match the natural stone of the Washington National Cathedral, enabling those advanced cabling systems to discreetly run throughout the historic structure.
NIM/CAMAC HIGH-ENERGY PHYSICS
Nemal is a leader in the manufacture of NIM-CAMAC cables, adapters and assemblies for use in high energy physics and research applications. Having worked with scientists at Los Alamos, Sandia National Labs, Brookhaven, Jefferson Labs, UCLA and many others, our engineers understand the stringent demands of the research environment.
For a major national research experiment involving the nature of quark particles, researchers chose Nemal to engineer and manufacture a massive array of coaxial cables with specific impedance, precise electrical length and low attenuation to a tolerance never previously achieved in that type of application. These coaxial cables provided the exact nanosecond delay required to perform initial evaluation on the billions of data points generated by the accelerator.
Nemal’s cabling innovations have become standard equipment for sports broadcast applications throughout the hemisphere. In both permanent and temporary applications – and for NFL, NHL, NASCAR, MLB, World Cup and the Olympics – Nemal products have earned a reputation for reliability, performance and ease of use.
Our award-winning Stadium4 SMPTE cable, for example, was specifically designed to be the lowest cost, most flexible, and easiest to maintain multi-camera cable specifically engineered for major sports venues.
Nemal understands the unique environmental challenges of the healthcare industry, having partnered for many years on hospital infrastructure, device interconnect, data collection and communications projects for both new construction and refurbish installations.
For medical equipment manufacturer Steris, Nemal engineers developed a unique hybrid cable with fiber optic and electrical connectors. The advanced cable also featured a Nemal design proprietary Kevlar strength member and accompanying connector engineered with a specific fail point to protect both the Nemal cable and Steris equipment from accidental damage.
Organizations throughout North America trust Nemal when they need high performance cabling systems to meet exact specifications. OEMs understand that by working with Nemal, the cabling will not only do the job, but will enhance the overall performance of their product. In certain industries, clients don’t only stake their reputation on the performance of Nemal cables, they also entrust lives to it.
Nemal worked with Bendix/King engineers to produce a specialized conformable semi-rigid cable with precise strip dimensions for use in their air traffic collision avoidance systems (TCAS). These units are now installed in, and preventing accidents for, thousands of commercial airliners and business jets throughout the world.
MINING/OIL AND GAS
Nemal manufactures copper, fiber and hybrid electronic cables designed to withstand the rigors of mining and oil-and-gas applications. Our custom composite cables combine coaxial, fiber and power components into a single rugged, user-friendly multi-functional product ideal for use in tight workspaces. Our cables are rated for extra heavy use in harsh environments and offer superior resistance to abrasion and are suitable for long term submersion
Additionally, our polyurethane and polyethylene jackets are rated for chemical resistance, and reliably perform in high and low temperature extremes common in the industry.
MILITARY/AEROSPACE (microwave and RF)
Having worked with all branches of the U.S. military, Nemal develops and delivers mission-critical, harsh environment cabling solutions specific to the needs of the armed forces. Nemal’s exacting design and precision manufacturing enables both government and contract engineers to deliver their best.

Nemal Electronics Statement on COVID-19
Updated: June 30, 2021
It finally appears that we in the United States are over the worst of the Covid pandemic and on the road to health and business normality. Nevertheless, we are saddened over the dramatic increase in hospitalizations and deaths in India, Brazil, and other countries around the world. As long as those uncontrolled outbreaks continue, none of us will be safe. In this globally interconnected environment, it is critical that we all continue to use best efforts and take common sense steps to fight Covid. I am happy to report that we have zero cases of Covid confirmed among our employees and are doing everything possible to maintain that record. Many of the actions we took to fight Covid such as new filtration systems will provide a wide range of benefits to us and our employees for many years. We are most grateful for the incredible progress over the past year in treatments and vaccine rollout and for all of the sacrifices by our dedicated medical professionals and first responders. Nevertheless, we are heartbroken for the more than 500,000 people our country has lost. All of our manufacturing and other company facilities are operating at a normal level, however we continue to experience sporadic delays in shipment times, due primarily to global logistical bottlenecks. As for the past 40 years, our primary concern is for the safety and health of our employees, partners, and customers. We look forward to resuming our trade show participation at the NAMM show in Nashville in July followed by a show each month through the end of the year. We have already resumed limited customer and vendor visits and welcome the opportunity to meet with you in person again. In the meanwhile, we are most grateful for the opportunity to keep in touch with our clients remotely and continue our online technical presentations.
