C2G Leads the Next Evolution in Connectivity Solutions

New Solutions Optimize A/V Connectivity and Control


LAS VEGAS, NEVADA (InfoComm 2012, Booth C9144) — June 6, 2012C2G, the preferred provider and trusted expert of high performance cabling and connectivity solutions, supports the cabling and connectivity needs of today's corporate, education, and commercial settings by combining existing architecture with the latest technologies. Continuing the momentum to provide the latest advances in connectivity, C2G announces the availability of RapidRun® Multi-Format, TruLink® HDMI® over Cat5, and TruLink Media Gateway. These products represent an expansion of their respective product lines and provide greater flexibility, simple installation, and the ability to extend audio and video signals over long distances. C2G will showcase these exciting, innovative new solutions at InfoComm 2012.

RapidRun Multi-Format is the most significant platform iteration in the RapidRun product line since its introduction in 2005. It features enhanced engineering that includes individually shielded pairs and an isolated ground for audio lines. These upgrades meet the rigorous demand for applications typically found in a conference room, classroom, or other similar commercial environments. RapidRun Multi-Format excels at delivering crisp video and high fidelity audio from source to display in applications where multiple source devices (e.g. laptop, computer, DVD player) utilize various signal outputs (VGA, 3.5mm audio, composite video, and dual RCA audio). Trusted by integrators, installers and end-users, RapidRun's reputation for quick and effortless in-wall A/V connectivity is unmatched.

TruLink HDMI over Cat5 is the newest addition to the portfolio offered by C2G of A/V over Cat5 solutions. This solution extends HDMI signals up to 300 feet over a solid conductor, Cat5e or Cat6 cables without signal degradation. It is compatible with any operating system and requires no drivers or software. Power can be delivered from a single power supply placed at either the transmitter or receiver end. This solution utilizes HDBaseT technology and provides digital connectivity options that can be combined with existing analog solutions such as VGA, VGA + 3.5mm audio, and VGA + 3.5mm audio + RS232 for installations where both analog and digital signals are required.

The TruLink Media Gateway represents the next evolution in A/V connectivity panels. This product line provides hassle-free display of content from portable electronics through easy-to-use plug and play technology for the conference room, classroom, and other common areas. Available in four base models, users can select the option that best meets their application needs. Connection options include HDMI, VGA, composite video, 3.5mm audio and a connection for Apple® devices, USB and Ethernet, plus power receptacles. Input signals are converted and delivered to the display over a single HDMI output cable—making the TruLink Media Gateway simple to use and install. A full line of accessories and mounting options are available to support a wide variety of in-room A/V applications.

"As the trusted expert in A/V and IT cabling and connectivity, C2G provides innovatively simple solutions to meet a wide range of applications and budgets, enabling seamless integration and flexibility to upgrade with the ever-changing technology landscape," said Gary Hess, vice president of innovation for Lastar, parent company of C2G.

In addition to standard cabling and connectivity solutions, the following recently released products will be featured at InfoComm 2012; TruLink HDMI Active Optical Cable (AOC), TruLink HDMI over Coax, and TruLink A/V Controller. The HDMI Active Optical Cable (AOC) provides another option for transmitting high definition HDMI signals over long distances. Its use of optical signals reduces the risk of EMI/RFI interference and small flexible construction makes it easy to install in tight places. The HDMI over Coax simplifies demanding digital signage or residential HDMI installations. It supports a 1080p HDTV signal up to 390 feet over standard RG6 and cascading receivers to deliver content to up to 24 monitors. The TruLink A/V Controller offers smart control for operating projectors, DVD and Blu-ray players, document cameras and other A/V devices in classrooms, conference rooms, and other commercial settings.

InfoComm 2012 attendees can see and learn more about these solutions from C2G at Booth C9144.
