ORLANDO, FLA. (2009 InfoComm, Booth 5079) – June 17, 2009 — C2G today announced the formation of a Classic Line of audio/video cabling and connectivity products specifically suited for educational institutions. The Classic Line is a collection of cables and wall plates designed for school implementations involving projectors, interactive whiteboards and other audio/video equipment.
The Classic Line features integrated wall plates with various combinations of audio and video pass–through connectors. The aluminum plates are compatible with standard electrical boxes and mount flush with the wall for a clean, professional appearance. Cables in this line were designed with special low–profile connectors that fit better in a crowded electrical box. Cable jackets are plenum–rated for safe installation without metal conduit. Supported signal formats include VGA, composite audio/video, component video, 3.5mm stereo audio, and more.
The C2G Classic Line offers a traditional, cost–effective connectivity solution that complements RapidRun®, the company's innovative modular cabling system. RapidRun is easily pulled through conduit, carries multiple signals over a single cable, and supports everything from basic composite video to advanced digital formats like HDMI.
“Our RapidRun modular cabling solution has been widely adopted by the K–12 market because it allows users to easily upgrade equipment without running new cables,” said Gary Hess, C2G director of product management. “However, we also realize there are many times when the school or school district has applications where they may not be as concerned about future–proofing and just need a straightforward, quality connection as provided by the Classic Line. This line illustrates our commitment to serving our customers in the education market with connectivity solutions designed around their specific needs.”
The C2G Classic Line is now available through C2G partners.
