Reel FX Creative Studios Turns to Gepco Cables
to Wire New Facility
Recognized for producing animation for theatrical trailers such as "Robots" for Blue Sky and Fox, Playskool toy commercials for Hasbro, and the in-game cinematics for video games such as the recently released Halo 2, Reel FX is a creative studio specializing in animation and visual effects for entertainment and commercial production. Having to relocate its offices in Dallas, Texas to meet greater business demands, Reel FX recently purchased Gepco cables to wire their state-of-the-art facility.
"Gepco cables came highly recommended from the creative staff that helped systematize our new working area," stated Joey Wray, broadcast engineer for Reel FX Creative Studios. "The team at Gepco has been very helpful guiding us through our new facility to understand the installs. Their customer service department is one of the best out there."
Reel FX Creative Studios purchased 57,000' of VSD2001 High Definition Coax Cables; 1,000' of MP1201 Microphone Cables; and 5,000' DS604 High Bandwidth AES/EBU Digital Audio Multi-pair. Gepco also supplied the studios' microphone cables, RGB component video snakes, and 8-channel D-Sub 25-pin 110ohm AES/EBU multi-pin breakout cables.
"The VSD2001 High Definition Coax Cables are ideal for the new office area," stated Wray. "The gas-injected dielectric and precision process control are the critical factors in achieving superior electrical performance in our studios."
The new facility houses leading edge technology, including several state-of-the-art animation machines, render farms, recording studios with Hi-Def, Surround Sound capability. In the new 74,000 square foot location, they are using the Gepco cables in the master control center, which is connected throughout the entire building, including the visual effects and animation suites and recording studios.
