Gepco Introduces Ultra-flexible VHD2000M
HD Video Coax

Coax Cable for Patchcord and Portable Video Patching

DES PLAINES, IL, May 27, 2004—During InfoComm 2004 in Atlanta, Gepco (Booth #2529) will debut its VHD2000M, an extra-flexible HD coax cable designed to meet the demands for High-Definition video patching applications. The VHD2000M is a RG59 type High-Definition video coax that features exceptional flexibility and flex-life. Certified to a 3GHz bandwidth for 1.485 Gb/s HDTV transmission, VHD2000M is ideal for patchcord and portable video patching applications in HDTV, Standard SDI and high-resolution analog video formats.

VHD2000M features a precision stranded center conductor, a unique double braided shield, and a matte PVC jacket that achieve exceptional flexibility and flex-life, without compromising the electrical performance required for HD video. For the insulating dielectric, VHD2000M utilizes Gepco's proprietary crush-resistant, gas-injected polyethylene compound that reduces attenuation and extends the operating bandwidth.

As with all other Gepco HD coax cables, every critical electrical and mechanical characteristic is manufactured to precision tolerances to ensure accurate signal and data transmission. All electrical specifications meet or exceed the SMPTE 292M standards for HD coax, while the mechanical dimensions conform to industry leading tolerances that ensure consistent stripping and connector termination.

"Conventional flexible video coax does not typically have the bandwidth or precision required for uncompressed HD video interconnect," stated Scott Fehl, Gepco's product and marketing manager. "With the introduction of the VHD2000M, increased flexibility is a luxury we can now provide for High-Definition video applications without sacrificing the required bandwidth or electrical peformance."
