DAYTON, OH — June 30, 2017 — Legrand, North America today introduced its new Extenders for Logitech® GROUP. These extension kits provide the ability to extend the connectivity of the camera or speakerphone away from the system hub.
"Logitech video conferencing systems are preferred by a wide range of businesses, but users may be limited by the length of the cables," said Garry Dukes, Director of Product Management for the Data Communications Division of Legrand. "C2G's new extender kits free business users of this restriction, and enable them to configure the video conferencing system to fit nearly any sized conference room."
C2G's main priority was ease-of-use when designing the new extenders for Logitech video conferencing systems. Users select a preferred length between 35 feet and 150 feet, with 50 feet (15 meters) being the most common, and the kit extends either the camera or speakerphone of Logitech GROUP away from the system hub. To further simplify the installation, users can power the entire system with a single power supply by adding a Cat5 or Cat6 cable.
To achieve the cleanest installation, these extenders utilize RapidRun Optical—the leanest, longest, fastest, strongest RapidRun extension solution—to extend all audio/video and control signals required for operation of the Logitech GROUP. The RapidRun Optical system supports cables up to 1,000 feet, even longer than the standard kits.
In addition to carrying the audio/video and control signals required for the operation of Logitech GROUP, these extenders also carry an HDMI audio/video signal. This means that businesses can use the extender to place the camera or speakerphone in exact locations, while also sending the audio/video signal to the in-room HDTV or projector from a desktop computer, laptop or even Logitech SmartDock, providing a full video conference experience for all meeting attendees.
