Gepco cables

are helping Sweetwater Digital Productions expand its remote HD production options as it adds a second HD production truck to its fleet. Sweetwater's newest HD truck, named Cobalt, is using Gepco cables for both its audio and video needs.

Sweetwater provides video production trucks, custom control rooms, display technology, camera systems and flypacks to some of the industry’s leading producers of television shows, commercials, live special events, corporate shows, meetings, conventions and motion pictures. With their trucks being used on high-profile projects, performance is critical when equipment and connectivity solutions need to be installed. When selecting a cable and interconnect manufacturer, Sweetwater wanted quality customer service, convenience and a quick turnaround to keep construction on schedule. Gepco’s performance, combined with its excellent customer service, made it the top choice for the project. “We’ve had a long-standing relationship with Gepco and have used its cables for years,� said Mark Hale, Chief Engineer of Sweetwater. “It’s nice to be able to call and drive to Gepco’s Burbank location and be confident that our order was fulfilled correctly and in a timely manner. In addition to the convenience and speedy turnaround, the cables provide consistent performance — even in the harsh remote environments our trucks often face.� The list of cables Gepco supplied includes: VDM230 miniature HD coax, VPM2000 RG59 HD digital coax, VS5230 video snake, DS4 and DS6 series digital audio multi-pair cables, and GA724 series multi-pair audio cables. In addition to cable, Gepco also supplied connectors from Kings, Calrad, Canare and AIM for both the audio and video connectivity. Gepco also provided all the hybrid connectivity for the truck with GHF92A hybrid fiber SMPTE camera cables. These cables are being used in the new 53-foot expando truck as interconnectivity solutions for its Sony HDC1500L High Definition Cameras. Additional audio and video equipment installed in Cobalt include a Grass Valley Kalypso Duo Switcher and a Studer Vista 8 Audio Console. The truck will be used for HD remote productions such as on-location shoots for TV and film as well as live event coverage.
