"After using RapidRun for the first time, we saw that the product was easy to install and the installation time was cut in half! We loved its ability to accomplish many connections with just one cable. RapidRun is by far the easiest way to connect a projector. No more worrying about pin-out or trying to get a premanufactured cable with a 1.25" connector through a small pipe. We have installed several hundred RapidRun cables and have never had a bad cable or flying lead. They hold up great in the classroom, which is why we use this product in schools every day." …read more.
"The thing I like best about RapidRun is the ease of installation of a single cable. We are a classroom integrator, so we are always looking for simple solutions for connecting projectors, screens, speakers, etc. We have a stringent quality control process, and we have found that RapidRun's consistency from room-to-room is very high, while the failure rate is slim to none. It has become company standard to use RapidRun, and we will complete another 3000 RapidRun installations between June and December 2010." …read more.
"During the installation, RapidRun was super easy to get up and down the conduit without a pull string. Once the installation was complete, we were very pleased with the performance of the product." …read more.
"Since our first experience over two years ago, we have used RapidRun several times in our school systems. We have 42 schools, soon to be 44, and will continue to use RapidRun for future projects. I should mention that the school where we first used RapidRun was demolished, but before it was destroyed, we made sure to retrieve the RapidRun cables from the building to use for something else. It truly is that valuable!" …read more.
"In three and a half years, I cannot recall a time that we've had a bad cable from you guys. The performance has been extremely solid to say the least. We've never had to revisit an installation because of the cabling." …read more.

RapidRun Optical is an all fiber digital solution for the classrooms of today that want to be ready for tomorrow. Capable of distances up to 1000ft, 18Gbps bandwidth, and 4k video resolution.
Solve common needs in the classroom with wireless solutions to allow for greater collaboration, interactivity, and learning among students and educators.
Our expanded offering of Wiremold cable management products coupled with our already comprehensive product portfolio makes classroom connectivity easier than ever.
Our RapidRun product line is designed for applications with conduit for cable installation due to its modular design, eliminating the need for field termination. RapidRun's multipurpose runner cable is a perfect fit for applications where a future upgrade path is desired.
For applications where cable is installed in a raceway or specified for pass-through termination, our Classic Series product is a perfect fit. Low profile connector design makes installation in wall boxes effortless. When mobility is desired or cabling is not possible, our Wireless USB solution offers a safe and reliable means of connectivity in any learning, sharing or collaborating environment.
We offer numerous products to assist with connectivity of interactive whiteboards. Solutions include USB Superbooster® extenders and Wireless USB and SMART™ ECP extension cabling. USB Superboosters provide an easy means of exceeding the length limitations of USB cabling to allow flexible placement of an interactive whiteboard up to 150ft away from the computer. When cabling is not possible or mobility desired, our Wireless USB solution provides 30ft of connectivity from the user's computer. Specific models of SMART™ brand interactive boards can benefit from our ECP extension cabling to assist with distant placement of the projector from the ECP switch.
Competitor cabling with full form factor connectors requires deep wall mount boxes to accommodate large connector dimensions as well as the cable bend radii. Congestion in wall mount boxes strains the cabling near the connector resulting in damage which can cause signal and performance issues. Classic Series' low profile connector design reduces the need for deep wall mount boxes and reduces the amount of congestion in wall mount boxes. The result is easier installation and less strain on cabling.
We offer a range of products to help in multiple applications beyond the classroom environment such as wiring closets, digital signage, libraries, conference rooms, faculty offices and auditoriums. Products such as Cat5e/6 patch cords, patch panels and network switches are ideal for wiring closet applications, while products such as our VGA over Cat5 and WDSDS are perfect for digital signage throughout the building. Library environments can benefit from our KVM over Cat5 solution, allowing computer cases to be places in a remote location, saving space and reducing the risk of infection from outside media. Conference rooms and auditoriums can benefit from our Wireless USB products for total mobility of the presenter. Our USB docking station provides a universal and economical means for mobile users, while our USB to VGA adapter offers a safe and convenient way to add a second monitor for desktop users in an office.
When a power outlet for IP cameras is not possible, our Power Over Ethernet (POE) adapter can help by providing 24 watts of power on the same Cat5e/6 cable used for video (requires a POE supported camera). For applications which utilize analog based band video, our line of RCA and BNC baluns provides an economical means of transmitting video up to 1500ft away. Proximity door locks and cameras can benefit from our selection of Cat5e/6 bulk cabling available in 500ft and 1000ft boxes.
No, our Wireless USB product line signals use Ultra-Wideband technology which is unable to penetrate solid objects such as walls and ceilings. Security features of the product also prevent access from other Wireless USB devices in the same room without proper authentication.
