Select the right RapidRun line
The signals required will determine which line of RapidRun is best for each installation.

RapidRun Multi-Format supports VGA, Stereo Audio, Composite A/V, Component Video, or RGBHV Video — learn more.
Select a runner cable
Determine the runner length and jacket type required for the installation.
RapidRun Optical runner cables are available in lengths from 35 feet to 1000 feet with a plenum, OFNP–rated jacket for installations in shared air spaces.
RapidRun Multi-Format runner cables are available in lengths from 6 feet to 150 feet with a in–wall, CMG–rated jacket for installations in-wall, and in lengths from 15 feet to 150 feet with a plenum, CMP–rated jacket for installations in shared air spaces.
Select flying leads or wall plates
Each RapidRun system requires a flying lead or wall plate on both ends of the runner cable.
RapidRun Optical requires a flying lead or wall plate transmitter at the source end of the runner cable where the computer, Blu-Ray™ player or other source device will be placed, and a receiver flying lead at the display end of the runner cable where the projector or TV will be placed. RapidRun Optical allows for HDMI and DVI leads and wall plates to work interchangeably. For example, an HDMI transmitter wall plate may be used at the source end of the runner cable with a DVI receiver flying lead at the display end of the runner cable.
RapidRun Multi-Format requires two flying leads and two wall plates, or one flying lead and one wall plate. The same A/V connector must be used on both sides of the runner cable. For example, if a VGA wall plate is used at the source end of the cable, then a VGA flying lead or VGA wall plate must be used at the display end of the runner cable.
Many RapidRun applications require additional accessories for installation or for finish work.
