Gepco Introduces Heavy-duty UTP Ultra-low Skew Cable

Durability with Superior Transmission Over Long Distances

DES PLAINES, IL, June 12, 2007— Gepco International has introduced the LSK04HD heavy-duty, ultra-low skew UTP cable. The LSK04HD is designed for the transmission of component analog video in a twisted-pair format without hardware delay compensation - all within a heavy-duty construction.

Based on the LSK04, each pair in the LSK04HD is constructed from 23 gage solid copper and a precision 100 Ohm dielectric. For added strength and diameter, the LSK04HD has a unique double-jacket design. The inner jacket maintains the critical spacing of the twisted-pair elements, while the outer TPE jacket offers additional strength, durability, diameter, and abrasion resistance.

Like the LSK04, the LSK04HD provides a consistent pair lay with a maximum time-delay differential of 2 nanoseconds (per 100m) between any two pairs. This minimized pair skew (or delay) allows for red, green, and blue video components to remain in sync, ensuring optimal picture quality and reliable video distribution.

"Commercial AV and staging applications often require a cost-effective, yet durable interconnect for the distribution of component video formats," explains Scott Fehl, Gepco products development manager. "The construction of the LSK04HD brings our low-skew cable technology into a heavy-duty design that can withstand the extreme environments staging and portable applications often present."

Gepco® International, with headquarters in Des Plaines, IL, and branch locations in Burbank, CA and Chestnut Ridge, NY, 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.
