Gepco International has announced they are including a comprehensive electrical and mechanical test report for every reel now shipping of their HD video co-ax cables. This new documentation and certification process, which is an added extension to Gepco’s existing and comprehensive quality-control process, ensures the highest level of performance and confidence when installing High-Definition and SDI digital video interconnect systems in critical broadcast or production facilities.

Documentation for each reel includes measurements of attenuation and return-loss, impedance and velocity of propagation. In addition, all relevant electrical measurements are swept-test across the entire 3GHz bandwidth of the cable. Critical mechanical measurements such as conductor centering, ovality and outer-diameters are also provided to further ensure optimal signal transmission, as well as proper connector termination. All test report data is clearly printed on a single label, attached to each reel, archived by Gepco and available if replacement documentation should be required.

“Gepco is extremely proud to offer this new service to the broadcast and pro-video industry,” says Gary Geppert, CEO/CTO of Gepco International. “Through our extensive R&D and proprietary manufacturing procedures, Gepco has been able to tightly control all electrical and mechanical attributes of our HD coaxial cables. By providing individual certification for each reel, Gepco HD co-ax can deliver the highest level of confidence in demanding high-definition video applications where extremely accurate, high-speed data transmission is required.”

Gepco International Inc., with headquarters in Des Plaines, IL, and a branch location in Burbank, CA, has been a provider of studio and broadcast audio and video cables for more than 20 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
