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

These cables only work with the Sony Brand Remote Control units. The reason for this is, 3rd part or aftermarket controllers do not allow the cable to be replaced, as they are hardwired in. Only the Sony brand controllers allow the cable to be unplugged at the remote control unit and replaced with our longer cable.

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

We have extension cables for the Sony RM-VPR1, Sony VCT-VPR1 and Sony VCT-VPR100 remote controllers. 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 and it is completely shielded.  You must be careful with the connectors as they are very tiny and may damage if you are not careful with them.  I am not sure why Sony went to this type of connector, but you need to handle them with care.

The Sony RM-VPR1 extension cables are perfect for use with End Zone camera and Sideline camera setups.

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.

The cable has male connectors on both ends of the cable. The reason is, the camera has a female jack and the remote has a female jack.  This allows to extend the distances between the remote and the camera.

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.

How to use the Cables
Power OFF the camera.

Unplug the cable that came with the RM-VPR1, Sony VCT-VPR1 or Sony VCT-VPR100 remote controller. You will be replacing that cable with our cable.

Next, the Grey 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.

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.

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.

If you have a problem with the cable.
1. Make sure the camera was powered OFF before plugging in the cable and remote control unit.

2. Make sure the cable is plugged in all the way at both end of the cable.

3. If the camera powers on then off, do the following steps:

  • Turn the camera on and then using the remote power the camera off right away.

  • Unplug the cable from the camera and power the camera back on and leave it on for 30 seconds or more.

  • Turn the camera off and plug the cable back in.

  • Turn the camera on and leave it sit for 30 seconds.

  • This should reset the remote control unit.

If you are still having problems with the camera powering on then off, then you may have a problem with the remote control unit.

Also, make sure the cable ends are dry.  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.  Use a can of compressed Air to blowout the cable ends so they are dry.

Not only are the cables tested at the factory, but ALL cables are tested here at Studio 1 Productions with a Sony HDR-CX440 camcorder and the Sony RM-VPR1.  Each cable is tested prior to packing.

These cables are heavy duty and are perfect for End Zone and Sideline camera setups. Remember, you must be careful with the connectors on the cable.  Since they are small electronic connections, you must handle them with care.  They are NOT rugged like a football.

Please print this page out so you have a copy of the direction on how to use the Sony RM-VPR Multiport Extension cable.

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

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.
