All Cables are tested at the factory and at Studio 1 Productions with a Sony RM-VPR1 and a Sony HDR CX440 camcorder prior to shipping.

We are now stocking the Sony RM-VPR1 Remote.


These two cables only work with the Sony Brand Remote Control units. If you have a JJC SR-F2 remote or the Revo VRS-Multi remote, we do have extension / replacement cables for these two controllers.  Please visit this page.

Other 3rd party or aftermarket controllers do not allow the cable to be replaced, as they are hardwired in. Only the Sony brand, the JJC SR-F2 and the Revo VRS-Multi remote controllers allow the cable to be unplugged at the remote control unit and replaced with our longer cable.

Please make sure you are ordering the correct cable for your remote.  This page is strictly for the Sony brand remotes only.

Sony RM VPR1 and Sony VCT-VPR1 Extension Cable Sony Multiport Cable


The extension or replacement cables on this page are only for the Sony RM-VPR1, Sony VCT-VPR1 and Sony VCT-VPR100 remote controllers.  These cables have a male Multiport connector on both ends, allowing you to extend the distances between the remote and the camera.

They are available in two lengths, 12 ft. and 27ft. They are heavy duty and made with heavy gauge wires so there will not be any signal loss between the remote and the cameras.

The 27 ft. cable weight close to a pound as it is a very thick cable, plus it is completely shielded.  NOTE:  YOU MUST be careful with the connectors as they are very tiny and will damage if you are not careful with them.  Why Sony went to this type of small fragile connector is beyond me, but you need to handle them with care.

These extension cables are perfect for use with End Zone camera and Sideline camera setups.

Attention Coaches:  While this cable is heavy duty and is perfect for End Zone and Sideline camera setups.  PLEASE warn who ever is setting up and working with the End Zone Camera equipment, that the connectors are very small and fragile and they must handle them with care.  They are NOT rugged like a football.

How to use the Cable

Power the camera OFF when plugging in or unplugging the cable. Or you may damage the remote controller.

Unplug the cable that came with the the Sony RM-VPR1 or VCT-VPR1 remote controller, as you will be replacing that cable with either our 12ft or 27 ft. cable.

Next, the Gray end of the cable plugs into the remote and the Black end plugs into the camera. We have a label on the cable to remind you which end plugs into the camera.  Make sure you are plugging the cable in the correct way, or you may damage the connector.

When you plug the cable in, you should hear or feel it click into place.  Please make sure the cable is plugged in all the way.

If the remote will not control the camera, then power off the camera and unplug and replug in both ends of the cable.  As they may not be getting a good connection.

We also have 25 ft. HDMI to Micro HDMI cables so you can connect your camera to an HDMI Monitor.


NOTE:  When connecting the cable to the camera, you MUST provide some type of strain relief so the cable is not pulling on the connection especially at the camera end, otherwise you will damage the pins in the connector or the connector itself.  As an example, you might try looping the cable around the camera strap before plugging it into the camera.  I am sorry but we will NOT cover damage like this under the warranty, since this is caused by the end user.

This cable is also called a Sony Multiport extension cable, Sony Multi Terminal Cable or a Sony Multiport replacement cable.

NOTE: While they may look like a USB cable they are NOT. They are made with the 15 pin connector that Sony uses for the Multiport connection on the video camera and the remote control.


All Cables are Tested with a Sony RM-VPR1 and a Sony HDR  CX440 camcorder prior to shipping.

Cable Warnings - PLEASE READ

Power the camera OFF when plugging in or unplugging the cable. Or you may damage the remote controller.

When connecting the cable to the camera, you
MUST provide some type of strain relief so the cable is not pulling on the connection especially at the camera end, otherwise you will damage the pins in the connector or the connector itself.  As an example, you might try looping the cable around the camera strap before plugging it into the camera.  I am sorry but we will NOT cover damage like this under the warranty, since this is caused by the end user.

DO NOT get the connectors wet. There is a small circuit board inside each connector. If it gets wet it will cause the cable to short out.  So keep the cable/connectors off of the ground.  We have heard of people dragging the cables through wet grass and the cables not working because water got in the opening on the connectors.  So, it is your responsibility to make anyone handling the cable knows this.  If the cable does get wet, coil it up like the picture up above and laying it out in the warm sun for a day and see if the circuit board can dry out.  Most of the time this can fix the problem.

BE CAREFUL when plugging the cable in. Pay close attention to make sure you are plugging the cable in the correct way or you will damage the pins in the cable.

Major problems coaches have with this cable:

  • Getting the connectors wet or dirt in the connector.

  • Plugging the cable in incorrectly and damaging the pins in the connetor.

  • Not providing strain relief for the plug at the camera end.

Other users, such as videographers and photographers don't have these problems.

We have special equipment to look into the connector to see if the pins have been damaged or if they have gotten wet or if you got dirt in the connector.  There will be no return or exchanges allowed, if we find damage that is caused by the end user, as this is not a failure of the cable.

Plus, any other camera that works with the Sony RM-VPR1, Sony VCT-VPR1 or Sony VCT-VPR100. This including Sony DSLR cameras.

For other Sony Cameras, such as the NEX, SLT and Cyber-shot cameras, we have compiled a list of cameras that will work with the Sony RM-VPR1 remote.  You can find that list by clicking here.

There is a label on the Sony RM-VPR1 extension cable showing which end plugs into the video camera. This label also has the serial number for the cable.  Do not remove this label as we need the serial number for warranty purposes.  If you remove the label with the serial number then the warranty will be voided.
