Gepco HDC120P 12mm heavy-duty hybrid fiber-optic cable

Gepco International Inc. will feature the HDC120P 12mm heavy-duty hybrid fiber-optic cable and the new VDM260 ultra-miniature high-definition co-ax cable at NAB 2005 (Booth #C9341).

SMPTE 311M compliant, the HDC120P was designed specifically for High-Definition camera to CCU interconnections in studio or mobile production environments where extra durability is required. The HDC120P features a 12mm polyurethane jacket, a special nylon-based polymer with three times the tensile strength for the fiber coatings and a 16-gage steel strength member cabled at the center of the cable core. In addition, each fiber includes a Kevlar wrap and PVC jacket. Electrical components now consist of two 16-gage auxiliary conductors and two 24-gage signal conductors.

The VDM260 is an “ultra-miniature” High Definition coax cable designed to achieve exceptionally low weight and small size without sacrificing the critical electrical and mechanical properties required for reliable transmission in broadcast applications. The cable features a 26-gage solid conductor, and a broadband foil and braid shield that offers better RF/EMI protection and greater structural integrity than serve-type shields. With a precision 75Ω impedance and low structural return loss up to 3GHz, the VDM260 meets and exceeds the bandwidth required for a 1.485 Gb/s HD video transmission. Additionally, the VDM260 can be used with SDI Digital Video, Analog Video and Digital Audio formats.
