Gepco's HD Coax Now Swept Test to 4.5GHz

DES PLAINES, IL, April 15, 2007— As of March 2007, all HD coax cables manufactured by Gepco are being swept test to 4.5GHz. This includes all HD coax cables the company manufactures, from the miniature coax to its full-size models, including the industry standard VSD2001 and VPM2000.

The change is in preparation for future digital video standards such as SMPTE-424M. Under this proposed standard, coax interconnects would require 4.5GHz of bandwidth for the transmission of 3Gbs 1080p HD digital video. Sweep testing to 4.5GHz will ensure that all of Gepco's HD cables are compatible with future standards.

"With future HD standards on the horizon, manufacturers need to be ahead of changes in industry requirements," says Gepco founder and CEO/CTO Gary Geppert. "By updating our manufacturing specifications, broadcasters can continue to utilize Gepco cables and be confident that their interconnect infrastructure will be compatible with current and future HD requirements."

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.
