Some specific applications for BNC connectors include:

CCTV - BNC connectors are commonly used to connect security cameras to monitors or video recorders.  They can handle composite video and high-definition video signals.

RF - BNC connectors are widely used to connect RF devices such as antennas, transmitters, receivers, etc. They can handle a variety of radio frequencies.

Test Equipment - Oscilloscopes, signal generators, and other test equipment often use BNC connectors.

Audio - Although less common, BNC connectors can also be used to carry analog audio signals.  They can process audio signals in the range of a few hertz to several megahertz.

As a result, BNC connectors are very versatile and suitable for most low-power analog audio and video applications due to their wide frequency bandwidth and ability to handle a variety of signal types.  However, for higher bandwidth digital video signals such as 4K, alternative connectors such as HDMI are more suitable.  For most consumer audio applications, connectors such as RCA or TRS are also now more popular.  But BNC remains an important professional standard for RF and CCTV installations.

Some key things to remember when using BNC connectors for AV signals:

Ensure sufficient bandwidth - Standard BNC connectors provide up to 4 GHz of bandwidth and can handle most consumer video formats, but may not be suitable for high-speed digital video links. Mini or micro-BNC work better for higher bandwidth signals.

Consider signal loss - While BNC connectors have relatively low losses (approximately 0.5-0.8 dB), cumulative losses can increase over longer cable lengths, affecting signal quality.  This is important, especially for video signals.  Using high-quality, low-loss coaxial cable helps minimize signal loss.

Matched Impedance - For best performance, the impedance of the BNC connector and coaxial cable should match the source impedance and load impedance. BNC connectors have a typical impedance of 50 ohms, which matches most audio and video equipment.  Any impedance mismatch will cause signal reflections, distortion, and loss of bandwidth.

Prevent interference - Like any cable, coaxial cables with BNC connectors can be subject to electromagnetic interference from nearby cables or equipment.  Proper shielding technology, such as braiding or mesh, can help shield signals from interference.

Consider the durability of the connector - While BNC connectors are strong and durable, compression-style connections can loosen from repeated connection and disconnection.  For permanent installations or highly flexible uses, other connector types (such as N connectors) may provide a more durable connection.

In summary, BNC connectors can be used for both audio and video signals when proper consideration is given to bandwidth, loss, impedance matching, interference, and connector durability.  With high-quality components and secure connectors, BNC enables coaxial RF connectivity and AV transmission.  By reviewing these key points, BNC connectors can definitely be used in both audio and video applications.
