DAYTON, OHIO – JULY 12, 2010 — C2G, the preferred provider of high–performance cabling and connectivity solutions, today announced its TruLink® 60GHz WirelessHD Kit was named a winner in the Network Products Guide Reader Trust Awards. The solution for wirelessly transmitting true 1080p signals received the 2010 Best Products & Services Award in the Wireless category.
This annual award honors products and services that represent the rapidly changing needs and interests of the end–users of technology. Winners in this year's Best Products and Services Awards were selected from among nominations from all over the world.
“Increased end–user awareness and ongoing advances in technology are helping shape better products and services,” says Rake Narang, editor–in–chief, Network Products Guide. “C2G is bringing its innovation in cabling and connectivity to the wireless space to provide consumers and businesses with more options and flexibility.”
The 60 GHz WirelessHD Kit wirelessly transmits true 1080p video and 7.1 channel surround audio signals from HDMI components such as a Blu–ray player, set–top box, computer or gaming console to a television up to 33 feet away.
The WirelessHD Kit from C2G is a quick and convenient alternative to cable installation, particularly in situations where in–wall cabling is not feasible due to plaster, brick or exterior walls or where it is not desirable such as a rental property. Setup is as simple as connecting the receiver and transmitter to the television and HDMI component.
Gary Hess, C2G vice president of innovation, said, “As HDMI becomes more ubiquitous, many users are finding that running new cabling is not always the most desirable alternative. We have introduced our WirelessHD Kit now that wireless technology is mature enough to provide a true cable replacement with a reliable, high–definition signal.”
