FSR’s DR-PCB-H Digital Ribbon cables use a proprietary technology to allow high-speed, high-definition HDMI signal transmission over distances of up to 325ft. The cables hybrid fiber/copper structure delivers a speed of 10.2Gbps video bandwidth and can easily handle 1080p full HD, 4Kx2K, 3D, deep color, HDMI-CEC, HDCP, and most newer high-res formats. Features include no external power or special tooling required and cable and connectors that easily fit within a 1in. conduit.
Gefen’s Super Booster cable for high-speed HDMI is a copper cable-based solution available in lengths of 50ft., 75ft., 100ft., 125ft., and 150ft. Super Booster cable for HDMI in lengths of up to 100ft. support these HDMI 1.3 features: lip-sync passthrough, 225MHz (up to 12 bit YUV 444 @ 1080p), deep color, Dolby TrueHD, and DTS Master Audio, and CEC source switching. Also from Gefen are the CL3 copper-based, high-speed HDMI cables. The CL3-rated cable is suitable for in-wall installations and supports HD resolutions up to 1080p with up to eight channels of embedded digital audio. It uses high-quality 24AWG copper conductors to deliver a pristine signal over long distances, and the multi-layer shielding protects signal from electromagnetic interference (EMI).
General Cable’s Gepco Multimedia Category Cables for Use with Crestron Systems are designed to deliver reliability in leading-edge networking, data, and video applications. The Gepco Brand CT104/SDM Multimedia Cat-6A cable for use with Crestron systems is a shielded or foiled-twisted pair (F/UTP) cable for 10-Gigabit Ethernet applications, requiring grounding and industry-leading protection from external cable noise sources, also known as alien crosstalk (PSANEXT and PSAACRF). Both this cable series and the > CT504/SDM Multimedia Cat-5e cable
The Elite Series microphone cables from Hosa Technology are available with Neutrik XX-Series connectors in both Lo-Z (XLR3F to XLR3M) and Hi-Z (XLR3F to 1/4in. TS) configurations. The cables use 20 AWG oxygen-free copper (OFC) conductors and polyethylene dielectrics. A 95-percent OFC braided shield is employed for noise-free signal transmission. Nylon webbing over the cable’s PVC jacket provides cut and abrasion resistance and are available in lengths of 3ft. to 100ft.
Kramer’s new HDMI cables provide an uncompressed digital link between prosumer electronics equipment and audio/video monitors. They feature gold-plated, K-Lock pull-resistant connectors, which provide 15lbs. of restraining force for a non-slip connection and are available in lengths of 0.9 meters to 15.2 meters (3ft., 6ft., 10ft., 15ft., 25ft., 35ft., and 50ft.). Also from Kramer are the C−DGK6/DGK6 shielded twisted pair (U/FTP) data cable assemblies. Four shielded twisted pairs (U/FTP) of 23AWG solid copper conductors are cabled together in an unshielded outer jacket. They offer a varied selection of lengths from 3 meters to 60 meters (10ft., 25ft., 35ft., 50ft., 75ft., 100ft., 125ft., 150ft., 200ft.).
Metz Connect’s RJ45 Field Plug is a robust, 10-gigabit, shielded Cat-6 connector that requires no special tools for installation. The two-piece housing features color-coded terminals for easy wiring. This product meets IEEE 802.3an and can be reterminated for multiple usage. The RJ-45 field plug is suitable for PoE, PoE plus, and UPoE. This field plug is perfect for creating custom length patch cords or for direct-attach applications, including AV, secured data, and government and military markets.
