Gepco® International Introduces Gepco® Powered by MultiDyne® GP-3500

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA, November 5, 2010 — Gepco International, an industry leader in professional audio and video interconnect products, is pleased to introduce the GP-3500, a multi-rate 3G HD-SDI fiber optic transport system at the 129th AES Convention (Booth # 1313) in San Francisco, November 5-7. The GP-3500 is part of the new Gepco® Powered by MultiDyne® line launched by Gepco last month and made by MultiDyne Video & Fiber Optic Systems, a premier provider of fiber optic-based video and audio transport solutions for the broadcast and pro A/V applications.

GP-3500The GP-3500 is an economical and innovative solution providing 1.5 Gbps (HD-SDI) or 3 Gbps (1080p 3G-SDI) fiber optic transport with audio, intercom and bi-directional data (GPI and tally) over a single fiber. The GP-3500’s support for audio makes it a standout for the AES Convention. The system can carry two AES digital or four analog audio channels with transcoding (analog in, AES out or vice versa) with two bi-directional auxiliary audio channels for four-wire intercom. Embedded audio is also supported in the HD-SDI video signal. Meanwhile, the data and the GPI channels can be used for control of equipment in remote locations, and the tally relay can be used for control of a camera tally light (or other types of control when not in use with an on-camera tally light).

“The GP-3500 is our first active fiber product offering with audio capability combined with video and data,” said Joe Zajac, Market Development Manager for Gepco. “Through our partnership with MultiDyne we plan to further develop the Gepco® Powered by MultiDyne® line to include more audio-related products.”

The GP-3500 is available in a standalone portable configuration with an optional triple rack kit. Also available is the GP-3500’s corresponding simplex fiber cable assembly (GSP01S-Length-ST/ST) in standard or custom lengths. Gepco will stock the GP-3500 along with all items in the new Gepco® Powered by MultiDyne® line. The Gepco® Powered by MultiDyne® name reflects the commitment of both companies to work together, and the GP-3500 is backed by MultiDyne’s seven-year warranty.
