Gepco International‘s Component Video and Cat-5E Hybrid Cable is intended for commercial AV applications that require the distribution of high-resolution component video with Cat-5E for IP-addressable devices or displays. The coaxial elements of the Component Video & Cat-5E Hybrid Cable are Gepco’s 23-gauge solid miniature HDTV coax, which features low attenuation, 3GHz bandwidth, gas-injected dielectric, and a dual foil and braid shield. Additionally, each coaxial element is 100 percent swept tested to meet or exceed SMPTE 292M and 259M specifications.
The Cat-5E four-pair element has a 350MHz bandwidth and features electrical specifications that exceed TIA/EIA 568-B.2 requirements and is ETL verified. Gepco’s Component Video and Cat-5E Hybrid Cable has a flexible and UL-rated Type CM Gep-Flex outer jacket that is both flexible and suitable for permanent installation. In addition to the CM-rated version, a plenum version is also available.
“The rapid growth and increasing complexity of commercial AV infrastructure requires new solutions,” states Scott Fehl, Gepco’s products development manager. “With the Component Video and Cat-5E Hybrid Cable, Gepco achieves a solution to both high-resolution component video distribution and the increasing number of IP addressable devices.”
