Belden Inc. this week announced that it has acquired the assets of the Gepco brand from General Cable.
“This acquisition significantly increases Belden’s product portfolio to include AV panels, assemblies and test equipment, further demonstrating our continued commitment to the broadcast and AV markets,” said Elizabeth Stephan, director of sales and channel for Belden Broadcast AV.
Belden this year improved the performance of its HD-SDI coax products, such as 1694A and 1855A, from 4.5GHz to 6GHz. Moreover, it recently introduced 4794R, the first single-link 12GHz coax cable, which will be available by the end of Q3.
Gepco products will be available for sale this month, with many products available from inventory, Belden said in a release.
The company added that the “explosion of digital television, on-demand content and mobile devices has the broadcast industry investing in its infrastructure to meet increasing demand.”
Belden provides production, distribution, networking infrastructure and connectivity systems for television broadcast, cable, satellite and IPTV industries. In addition, its PPC brand serves the terrestrial broadband, satellite and telecommunications industries.
