Kramer C-R3VM/R3VM and C-R4VM/R4VM series high-performance component video cables are built from high-resolution mini coax cable to provide flexibility and ease of use in home theater and professional applications. The C-R3VM/R3VM family has three conductors for component video (YPbPr, YCbCr, YR-YB-Y, and YUV) signal use, and the C-R4VM/R4VM has four conductors — three for the video signals and one for digital audio (S/PDIF, Dolby Digital, DTS, Pro Logic II, etc). The cables are compatible with any standard- or high-definition analog component video signal. The cables come in standard lengths of 3ft., 6ft., 10ft., 15ft., 25ft., 35ft., and 50ft.

RACK POWER MANAGEMENT
The Stantron Presentation Rack is available in two models to serve presentation needs in classrooms, conference rooms, and boardrooms. The racks are customizable to fit the requirements of integrators and users and provide front- and rear-door access for simplified equipment reconfiguration and routine system care. Vertical lacing bars allow for efficient cable management. Stantron's new PowerMount system allows users to mount vertical power strips in virtually any location within the rack. The system features full-length mounting brackets to accept all styles and sizes of vertical Stantron PowerOptions power strips.

The Peerless PRG Precision Gear projector mount features patent-pending precision gear design to simplify image alignment. Users can perform exact tilt-and-roll image positioning either by turning two adjustment knobs with a Phillips screwdriver or by extending the knobs to adjust by hand. Once the installer has set the precision gear to the desired position, the mount will hold its place even during projector maintenance.

Gepco LSK04HD heavy-duty ultra-low skew UTP cable is designed for the transmission of component analog video in a twisted-pair format without hardware delay compensation. Based on the LSK04, each pair in the LSK04HD is constructed from 23-gauge solid copper and a precision 100Ω dielectric. Its unique double-jacket design provides added strength and diameter. The inner jacket maintains the critical spacing of the twisted-pair elements, while the outer TPE jacket offers additional strength, durability, diameter, and abrasion resistance.

The Fleetwood Group Reply CRS960X handheld wireless base station is designed to poll Reply CRS5200 wireless audience-response keypads and display session questions, individual responses, results graphs, and other system parameters on a large LCD, eliminating the need for an external video display. A video port is also included on the base station to permit connection to a television, projector, or other display device when one is available. Together, the CRS960X handheld base station and CRS5200 keypads comprise a portable two-way wireless interactive system that can serve a variety of simple group-response applications.

DVI I/O BOARD
Broadcast Pix's new DVI input/output board for the company's Slate switcher line will add both a DVI input and a DVI output to the switcher's modular I/O architecture, which already includes SD digital and analog — and later this year, HD for 720p and 1080i. The new DVI board also includes adapters for VGA I/O. The new DVI or VGA output will enable Slate to feed a high-resolution signal directly to a projector. While Slate is often used with inputs from laptops via an S-Video input, the new DVI or VGA input will enable a high-resolution input from a computer.
