“RG59 HD/SDI Coaxes – low attenuation that increases maximum allowable distances
22AWG Audio Pairs – low-loss twisted-pairs for balanced audio applications
Shielded 16AWG Power Pair – dual foil and braid shield for EMI suppression
4.5 GHz Coax Bandwidth – meets or exceeds SMPTE 292M and 424M standards for HD/SDI 100% Sweep Tested- network analyzer quality control for consistitent performance Color Coded Elements – uniquely identifies each channel TPE Outer Jacket – flexible and rugged for staging and remote broadcast applications

The RCC-HDP series cables are hybrid audio and video cables with a shielded power element that deliver the convenience of a single cable run for both power and AV signals. Designed for remote broadcast, staging and production environments. Each video element is a CD7559 20AWG RG59 HD/SDI coax cable that is rated to 4.5GHz for high definition SMPTE 424M, 292M and 259M video data transmission. The audio elements are made from Clark’s SPA22GS low-loss 22AWG single-pair cables. Each audio and video element is uniquely color coded for quick identification. The outer jacket is an extra-flexible and abrasion resistant TPE compound.”

You need to think of each function separate with this cable.
two sdi video (one to production) one from production to camera for video timer or teleprompter and so on. This is a video line only it can not power anything (*normally).
 
Also it has one power cable, most people would run 12-14vdc on this power cable to feed camera and monitor, most cameras (not all) take that voltage, you would then need adapters or connectors to match that cable to dc power in, on camera, and monitor, making sure its the right voltage and polarity. Then I would add the ampere of your loads camera and monitor (and maybe front monitor) and buy a 12 volt power supply to feed it from control room one per camera.
Another way would be to run 120vac (wall plug) on this line to power adapters at camera, I do not think they recommend this as wire size is small, no AC ground, and it would need GFCI outlet feeding it,  but I am going to talk to Clark wire and cable about it. As I really like the idea of having that at camera… but most likely the cable is not rated for that voltage and current and it will need to be a 12-14 VDC voltage.
 
The two remain lines are audio, one could be used  for tally (again with power supply for tally in control room) the other for intercom (or a mic on camera)
 
Each end of cable would fan out to connectors, I have seen people install a black metal plate at camera to hold camera, and to hold cable to fan it out, lots of times the plate extends to front of camera and they hang a monitor there for talent as timer or prompter you get idea, also I have seen a cage to hold viewfinder. In addition this makes camera more heavy, that helps on these light weight cameras. Your little camera now looks big lol. Anyways…
 
Just some ideas for you. This is what is happening in the old 26 pin cables, (and newer broadcast cameras also except they use fiber for video now) but not fiber for power. The exception to all this is a camplex system that multiplexes power and signals together on one cable, it a separate complete system, I do not think its up to HD-SDI but I have not check lately, that is what some remote trucks use to get by with one coax cable, (I do not recommend for a small studio, I am just pointing out the options).

(only cable I think is missing would be 1 CAT 5 Network cable)

Here is Belden version minus power cable you could use audio for power but it is small gauge wire. (Some people just gotta have Belden though)

For Fixed Camera studio installation or cameras you do not move much, also if the blue/orange color of cable is not an issue.

Within a single jacket, CRESCAT-DC-NP bundles (2) high-quality CAT5e cables and (2) RG6 quad shield coax cables along with a Cresnet control cable to facilitate fast and easy wiring for Crestron’s AV distribution switchers, room solution boxes, intercoms, and touchpanels. Inclusion of the RG6 cables allows for distribution of cable TV, DSS, baseband or modulated video, and other signals alongside the Crestron control and balanced AV signals.
