We sell black extension cords. We don’t sell orange extension cords.
Our cables are marketed to audio, video and theatre techs. They know that cables are not supposed to show up on stages or in video shots.
Orange cables stand out and scream “look at me”! Black cables quietly go about getting the job done.
If you are working on an event site or in a theatre, you can instantly identify the “newbie” as the one who shows up with a cardboard box full of orange cables instead of a road case full of black ones.
Both colors handle electricity the same way, but the audience’s eye (and the camera) handle them differently.
Good luck finding black cables with quality rubber jackets at a big box hardware store. It won’t happen.
