Gepco International, Inc., a leading manufacturer and supplier of studio and broadcast audio and video cables, recently unveiled at the LDI 2004 show in Las Vegas its new DLC224 DMX lighting control cable. A true DMX-type cable, the DLC224 series meets the USITT standard for DMX512 cable specifications — 120Ω impedance, low-capacitance, double-foil and braid shield. In addition, DLC224 features an all-weather, extra-flexible TPE jacket that is exceptionally tough, abrasion resistant and remains flexible in hot or cold temperature environments.

Utilizing conventional cables that are not intended for data transmission can often lead to data-drop out and unreliable interconnectivity. Through impedance matching the cable to the circuit and providing complete broadband shielding, Gepco offers more reliable interconnectivity with the introduction of the DLC224.

“Lighting control is an integral component to the overall success of a show and should not be left up to inferior cable types that are not true data-grade designs,” stated Scott Fehl, Gepco’s Product Manager. “Our DLC224 series of cables was created with the sole purpose of providing entertainment design engineers with a more reliable solution for controlling the lighting systems at live shows. Its unique design and heavy-duty construction makes it the perfect solution for any environment.”
