Gepco Introduces Five-channel RG7 High Definition Video Snake

Superior Transmission Over Long Distances

DES PLAINES, IL, April 15, 2007— Gepco International has introduced the VS57000 - five-channel RG7 High Definition Video Snake. Designed to provide multi-channel transmission of uncompressed HD video over long distances, the VS57000 is ideal for mobile production and staging applications.

Each coax element in the VS57000 is constructed from Gepco's VHD7000 16 gage High Definition coax, which features a gas-injected foam polyethylene dielectric and a 3GHz bandwidth. For broadband noise rejection, the cable is shielded with both a tinned copper braid and foil shield. To ensure long performance life and flexibility in varying conditions, the VS57000 is jacketed with a rugged TPE compound.

"As mobile productions continue to expand and evolve, broadcasters require longer interconnects for HD video that can perform in a variety of conditions," says Scott Fehl, Gepco's products development manager. "Combined with its rugged construction, the VS57000 provides lower attenuation over longer runs than the RG6 or the RG59 snakes, making it a great choice for mobile applications."

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 25 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.
