Gepco Debuts New Sheer Sound Extended Distance
HDMI & DVI Cables

Low-loss and Wide Bandwidth Cable Assemblies
for HDTV Interconnects

DES PLAINES, IL, August 25, 2005—Gepco, a leading provider of wire and cable in the home theater market, debuts the new HDMI & DVI series of cables. Designed for extended distance HD transmission and exceptional durability, Gepco 's new digital video cables bring professional grade performance to both commercial and residential HDMI & DVI applications.

The DVI and HDMI cables utilize Sheer Sound's new HDX24 cable series. The HDX24 has a more robust construction compared to traditional consumer grade cable types. This leading edge design features ultra low attenuation, wide bandwidth, larger conductors, and exceptional flexibility. As a result, the HDX24 series delivers both increased durability and exceptionally clear and accurate digital video transmission over longer distances.

Both cable types are available as preterminated cables with all-metal shells and integrated strain reliefs. Certified up to 15 meters at 1080i, Sheer Sound's HDMI and DVI cables allow for greater separation between the video source and display device. At this distance, Sheer Sound HDMI and DVI cables can be run three times as far compared to standard consumer grade types which are typically limited to 5 meters.

"Our new Sheer Sound HDMI and DVI cables deliver professional grade performance to HD video transmission in both commercial and residential applications," stated Scott Fehl, product development manager for Gepco International, manufacturer and distributor of Sheer Sound cables. "The extended distance certification of these cables allows system designers to have greater options in equipment and display placement."

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.
