Gepco Introduces High Bandwidth, Extra-flexible 110Ω Digital Audio Cables

DES PLAINES, IL, October 28, 2004—Gepco International, an industry leader in the manufacturing of studio and broadcast audio/video cables, will introduce its new DS series of 110Ω digital audio twisted-pair cables at AES in San Francisco this October (Booth #528). Available in 24 and 26 gage types and in multi-pair and single-pair configurations, Gepco's DS series offers both leading-edge electrical performance and improved flexibility.

This new series has been engineered to achieve the bandwidth and performance required for transmission of high-resolution digital audio sample-rates, such as 96kHz and 192kHz, which are commonly used in DVD and production level pro-audio applications. All Gepco DS series cables are rated up to 25MHz to meet the AES3-2003 specifications for these types of high sample-rate digital audio cable interconnects. They feature minimal attenuation, low-jitter, and a 110Ω impedance that remains stable when the cable is bent or flexed.

The DS series also features greater flexibility and mechanical performance. Through improved designs and compounds, the DS series is more flexible, flaccid, and easier to terminate. Without compromising flexibility, all DS single-pair and multi-pair products are also UL rated for use in both portable and permanent installation applications.

The new DS series of multi-pair and single-pair cables completely replace the previous generation of Gepco 5500 series of cables. Availability of the DS series of cable starts in Q4 2004.

"As the industry migrates towards higher sampling rates, the electrical performance of the cable interconnect becomes even more critical," stated Scott Fehl, Gepco's products development manager. "The electrical performance and flexibility were the two critical design goals in developing the DS series. After extensive research, development and testing, we believe that we are introducing what will be considered the industry standard in digital audio cable technology.

Gepco® International, with headquarters in Des Plaines, IL, and a branch location in Burbank, CA, has been a leading provider of studio and broadcast audio and video cables for more than 20 years. The company also specializes in manufacturing custom cable assemblies, panels, patch bay harnesses and breakout boxes. In addition, Gepco stocks and distributes connectors, patchbays and other cable-related products. For more information about Gepco, visit our Company Profile.
