Gepco Introduces New HDC120P
12mm Heavy-duty Hybrid Fiber Optic Cable

HD Cable Offers Exceptional Durability

DES PLAINES, IL, July 22, 2004—Gepco International Inc., a leading manufacturer of studio and broadcast audio and video cables, recently introduced the HDC120P 12mm heavy-duty hybrid fiber optic cable to its family of camera cable products. SMPTE 311M compliant, the HDC120P was designed specifically for High-Definition camera to CCU interconnections in studio or mobile production environments, where extra durability is required. This new third-generation design offers the highest level of reliability through a unique outer jacket and a compacted cable core that improves both connector termination and performance.

The HDC120P features an extra-tough, 12mm polyurethane jacket that is extremely rugged, puncture-resistant and significantly aids in the reduction of cable kinking. In order to optimize durability, Gepco utilized a special nylon-based polymer with three times the tensile strength for the fiber coatings and a 16-gage steel strength member cabled at the center of the cable core. In addition, each fiber includes a Kevlar wrap and PVC jacket for added protection.

Electrical components now consist of two 16-gage auxiliary conductors and two 24-gage signal conductors. These new gage types both streamline the connector termination process and increase reliability. As with all Gepco Hybrid Fiber cables, the HDC120P features heat-resistant insulation for operation in high-temperature environments.

"Gepco is dedicated to providing the professional video industry with state-of-the-art cable equipment and accessories," stated Scott Fehl, Gepco's product and marketing manager. "The introduction of the HDC120P provides the industry with a better, more reliable solution for camera to CCU interconnectivity and strengthens Gepco's solid reputation as the leader in High-Definition cable technology. "
