VTG Holdings, an audio interfacing and cable equipment manufacturer, is now making its entry into the video and broadcast markets by announcing its new A/V Bulk Wire and AES/EBU Digital Bulk Wire, which will be on display at InfoComm 2004 (June 3-5) at booth #4565. Both wires are ideal for a variety of cabling solutions and are available in completely custom, made-to-order specifications. The A/V Bulk Wire and the AES/EBU Digital Bulk Wire are distributed by the VTG Broadcast Group and are also available through Rapco International and Horizon Music Inc. Both wires are California Proposition 65-compliant and are lead and cadmium free.

“The Electronic News Gathering wire is designed to run onstage or in the field, for live broadcasts or any other application requiring a high level of confidence and dependable audio/video transmission,” said Cody May, director of engineering, VTG Corporation. “The ENG wire comes standard with four audio pairs and six video coaxial cables that are all color-coded and contained within one jacket. However, clients can also custom-design this cable to have 10 audio and 10 video or any other combination—we can build it to their specification.”

Key features and specifications of the A/V (ENG) Bulk Wire include commercial or non-commercial venue productions, four pairs of 22 AWG stranded tinned copper; polypropylene insulated, shielded and jacketed; six video coaxial cables; overall PVC jacketed; electronic news gathering (ENG) cable; lead and cadmium free in accordance with California Prop. 65; custom specifications and designs available.

“The AES/EBU digital wire was designed to meet the AES3 PHY standard,” continues May. “Manufacturing the cables, plugs and terminating it all in-house provides us with significant advantages. This allows us to control the levels of attenuation, crosstalk, resistance, product life and other metrics detrimental for high quality audio performance. The end result is a superior cable assembly. The wire is for AES/EBU digital audio applications where you need to connect a console or router to any other source or destination, such as a digital recorder. It is a 24-gauge cable that comes in two, four, six, eight, 12 or 16 pairs, so regardless of the application, we have a cable that meets nearly every requirement. Again, unlike most other cable manufacturing companies that only sell a fixed line of cabling, we have the unique ability to change our manufacturing direction to build custom-designed cables for even small runs. “

The A/V (ENG) Bulk Wire and AES/EBU Digital Bulk Wire are available through VTG Broadcast Group, Rapco International and Horizon Music Inc., and can be ordered toll free at 800/769-0748. For more information about this product, please contact VTG Holdings at info@vtgcorp.com .
