Des Plaines, IL--For assistance in meeting the great demands associated with covering the Olympic Games, NBC turned to NEP Broadcasting, a provider of broadcast management services. In turn, NEP reached out to Gepco International, a manufacturer of studio and broadcast audio and video cables, to meet the cable and cable-related product needs of the Summer Games. All told, Gepco supplied more than 170,000 feet of cable for the 2004 Olympic Games.
"We immediately contacted Gepco after receiving the request from NBC for support at this year’s Olympics," said Brian Conley, director of purchasing for NEP. "What separates Gepco from its competitors is the quality of the product, the competitive pricing, and detailed service. We were able to meet our delivery deadline easily, thanks to Gepco’s attention to detail."
Having purchased the cabling products from Gepco, NEP assembled and rented the equipment to NBC to use at this year’s Olympics in Athens, and will again at the 2006 Winter Games. NEP recently shipped two 40-foot ocean containers full of broadcast equipment to Athens. Equipment supplied by Gepco included: VS10230 Ten Channel Miniature Video Snakes; Y-Cable Splitters; MP1022 & 5522M Mic Cables; VSD2001 BNC Cables; XLR to Binding Post Adaptors; Triax Cable Assemblies; VS52001 Video Snakes; DT12 Audio Snakes; Breakout Boxes; and Fanouts.
