LAS VEGAS (2010 InfoComm, Booth #C5086) – June 9, 2010 — C2G, the preferred provider and trusted expert of high performance cabling and connectivity solutions, today announced a series of commercial–grade digital plenum cables that offer true digital performance while meeting the highest standards in safety and reliability. With options for HDMI, DVI and DVI + 3.5mm audio signals, C2G will offer the most complete line of digital plenum options on the market.
The digital plenum cables support resolutions of 1080p for displays and up to 1920x1200 for computers. Shielded 24 AWG copper conductors protect against electromagnetic interference (EMI) and radio frequency interference (RFI) to ensure uninterrupted performance. The cables will be available in both the Pro Series line and RapidRun® modular cabling system.
“Strict building code requirements for cabling in plenum spaces have created installation challenges in schools, hospitals and other commercial buildings,” said Gary Hess, vice president of innovation for Lastar™, parent company of C2G. “Previous solutions have needed to convert the digital signals to run over Cat5 or Cat6 and then convert them back. This adds complexity due to the signal conversion, requires a power source and introduces the possibility of signal degradation. With digital plenum cables from C2G, commercial installers have a simple, flexible means to transmit digital signals through plenum spaces.”
The Pro Series plenum cables range from 6 feet to 100 feet and come with 24k gold–plated connectors to prevent metal corrosion. The HDMI, DVI and DVI + 3.5mm audio cables will be available in both CL2 (in–wall) and CMP (plenum) versions. The plenum cable runners for the RapidRun modular cabling system range from 15 feet to 100 feet. The same runner can accommodate HDMI, DVI and DVI + audio signals by simply switching out the wall plate or flying lead.
All C2G plenum cables come with a full lifetime warranty for guaranteed dependable performance. For Canadian installations, the CL2 rating is equivalent to FT4 and CMP rating is equivalent to FT6.
The C2G Pro Series and RapidRun digital plenum cables will be available in October through C2G partners.
