GEPCO EXPANDS FIBER OFFERINGS TO INCLUDE NEUTRIK® OPTICALCON® AND AMPHENOL TAC-4 AND TAC-12 CABLE ASSEMBLIES

gepco_expanding-fiber_infocomm-2008.JPGLAS VEGAS, NV, JUNE 18, 2008 — Gepco (Booth C3419), an industry leader in the manufacturing of professional audio and video cables, is expanding its fiber cable assembly offerings to include Neutrik® OpticalCon® and Amphenol TAC-4 and TAC-12 cable assemblies. Gepco’s complete line of fiber cable assemblies will be on display at InfoComm 2008, June 18-20.

As an authorized manufacturer of OpticalCon cable assemblies, Gepco is now terminating custom lengths of tactical fiber cables with Neutrik’s OpticalCon connectors. Based on a standard optical LC-Duplex connection, Neutrik’s OpticalCon increases the reliability and maximizes the uptime for fiber optic connection systems. With the company’s introduction of the new IP65 rated model at InfoComm, the fiber optic connector system has been upgraded for dust-tight and water jet protection making it ideal for corporate, staging, remote and touring applications.

In addition to the new Neutrik OpticalCon cable assemblies, Gepco has added Amphenol TAC-4 four-channel and TAC-12 twelve-channel hermaphroditic connectors. The TAC-4 and TAC-12 hermaphroditic connectors are industry standard, multi-channel formats designed to withstand use and abuse in harsh environments.

As with all of the company’s fiber assemblies both the Neutrik and Amphenol assemblies are factory terminated by Gepco and feature precision machine-polished contacts which offer UPC quality to achieve –55dB return loss specifications. This process helps to attain excellent optical clarity and alignment, reducing back reflection and minimizing insertion loss. For further transmission assurance, all assemblies are 100% tested and verified for consistent performance and feature premium quality connectors and components.

“To meet the demands of the increasing amount of fiber optic applications in the broadcast and professional AV markets, we have expanded our fiber options to provide a wider variety of fiber interconnect solutions,? says Scott Fehl, Gepco’s Product Development and Marketing Manager. “Neutrik has a reputation for high-quality connector products and we are looking forward to being a part of that. The combination of Neutrik’s OpticalCon and Gepco’s assembly capabilities will further provide our users with a reliable fiber optic interconnect solution, that can be manufactured and delivered quickly and on-time.?

“Gepco has been a Neutrik dealer for years – it is great to take this business relationship to the next level,? says Jim Cowan, president of Neutrik USA. “Gepco is known for the quality products it produces. We are happy to invite the company to be a part of Neutrik’s manufacturing team.?

The assemblies are joining the variety of fiber solutions that Gepco currently offers which include; SMTPE 304M hybrid fiber camera cables (using Lemo or Canare brand connectors), ST/SC/LC multi-mode or single-mode snakes, indoor permanent installation cables, as well as tactical and portable-use cables.

Gepco International, Inc., 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 27 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, visit the Gepco website at www.gepco.com.
