Gepco Introduces Ultra-miniature High Definition
Coax Cable

VDM260 Achieves Low Weight and Small Size Without
Sacrificing Performance

DES PLAINES, IL, April 18, 2005—Gepco® International introduces the new VDM260, an ultra-miniature High Definition coax cable designed to achieve exceptionally low weight and small size, without sacrificing the critical electrical and mechanical properties required for reliable transmission in broadcast applications. Featuring a 26 gage solid conductor that provides lower attenuation and superior mechanical integrity, Gepco's sub-miniature VDM260 is more durable than designs utilizing smaller, more fragile gage types.

Ideal for mobile production trucks, the VDM260 has an ultra-thin profile, is low weight, easy to terminate and has a broadband foil and braid shield that offers better RF/EMI protection and greater structural integrity than serve type shields. With a precision 75Ω impedance and low structural return loss up to 3GHz, the VDM260 meets and exceeds the bandwidth required for a 1.485 Gb/s HD video transmission. Additionally, the VDM260 can be used with SDI Digital Video, Analog Video and Digital Audio formats.

"Our new VDM260 achieves a new standard for ultra-miniature High Definition coax," stated Scott Fehl, Gepco's product manager. "By implementing the precision manufacturing tolerances and materials used in our larger HD coax cables on a smaller scale, Gepco brings a new level of performance that far exceeds other types of ultra-miniature coaxial cables. The VDM260 delivers exceptional electrical performance in a design that is significantly more durable and easy to terminate."
