DAYTON, OHIO — July 31, 2014 — C2G, the preferred provider and trusted expert of high performance cabling and connectivity solutions, announced today that its RapidRun® Optical modular cabling solution is now available for purchase through IT and A/V distributors and reseller partners.
Unveiled at InfoComm 2014, RapidRun Optical is the next generation of modular cabling solutions that addresses the needs of today's A/V applications. Engineered to provide significant advantages over traditional cabling and alternative signal distribution options, RapidRun Optical carries with it significant advantages in three key areas: form factor, bandwidth and specifications.
The fiber optic based design allows for easier installation through walls and ¾" conduit than traditional cabling solutions due to its slim connector construction and tight bend radius of just 5mm. This simplifies installation and saves time, particularly on large deployments such as in schools or campus-wide corporate installations. With 18Gbps of bandwidth, RapidRun Optical is able to support UltraHD and 4k resolutions at 60Hz and beyond at distances up to 1,000ft — providing maximum resolution at maximum distance. RapidRun Optical is OFNP (plenum) rated, resists electromagnetic interference and does all this utilizing a single low voltage USB power port on the display end of the cable, eliminating the need for addition AC outlets. These improvements combine to make RapidRun Optical the Leanest-Longest, Fastest-Strongest™ modular cabling solution available.
