IEWC & Gepco enjoy continued success with orders for fibre cables for London 2012 and other major events
The union between Gepco, a renowned manufacturer of wire and cable solutions specifically designed for the Audio/Broadcast industry, and IEWC, a pioneering wire and cable distributor with international reach, enormous stock and the reputation for quick delivery, continues to grow as UK and European customers start to realise the benefits of being able to source high quality professional audio visual cables on short turnaround.
Most recently, IEWC has seen a significant increase in sales of Gepco products, particularly the SMPTE 9.2mm Hybrid Fibre Camera Cables, to large media companies that have secured contracts to provide coverage of the London 2012 Olympics Games, the UEFA Euro 2012 Football Championships or the recent French Elections.
Gepco products have a well-established pedigree in major sporting events, having been used on several previous Olympic Games. Engineered and manufactured to industry-leading standards, Gepco fibre system products bring the optical clarity and reliability required for high-bandwidth data transmission in television, video production, staging, outdoor broadcast and professional audio applications. Given that today’s digital video and audio takes a high percentage of bandwidth, traditional copper-based cables are increasingly struggling to handle the task.
The Gepco SMPTE 9.2mm Hybrid Fibre Camera Cables are designed specifically for HD video cameras. The HD video signal is transmitted over two single-mode optical fibres to ensure accurate and extended distance data transmission. To increase the durability, a special nylon-based polymer with increased tensile strength is used for the fibre coatings, and a 16 gauge steel strength member is cabled at the centre of the core. All copper elements feature heat-resistant PE insulation and are shielded by a dense 95% copper braid. Both extra flexible and permanent installation versions are available for studio, remote or permanent installation applications. IEWC are able to supply them from stock in standard lengths of 50, 100, 200 or 300 metres, whilst bespoke lengths have just a short 2-3 week lead time.
“Fibre optic systems are quickly becoming essential if we’re to keep pace with the bandwidth issues surrounding HDTV and 3DTV,” commented Graham Lay, European audio broadcast market specialist at IEWC. “These Gepco SMPTE hybrid fibre camera cables can handle the high-bandwidth data, deliver the clarity of signal required and are easy to route. They’re also extremely reliable and competitively priced, plus their durability under a wide range of conditions makes them easy to repair when there’s the inevitable problem.”
