CEDIA EXPO, DENVER, CO., Sept. 14, 2006 – Liberty Wire & Cable, worldwide supplier of a broad range of wire and cable products for the audio/video trade, including custom installers and systems integrators, exhibits its new line of QuickLinx Solid-Center Mini RGBHV Cables and new ConnecTec Compression Connectors at the Custom Electronic Design and Installation Association (CEDIA) Expo 2006, beginning here today.
Liberty’s new QuickLinx Mini RGBHV cables feature efficient solid-center conductors. The new ConnecTec products allow use of a single-piece connector instead of the multiple pieces needed for stranded-center cable. Meticulously designed to simplify installations and improve performance, they also promise installers savings in both time and expense, while adding to Liberty’s already unmatched array of connectivity solutions.
“Liberty is well known in the industry for providing AV professionals with on-target solutions to make their businesses both competitive and profitable,” said Bill Schripsema, Liberty Director of Product Management. “We feel our new combination of solid-center conductor cables and termination-friendly connectors will save installers significant time and money with installations involving RGBHV applications.”
The new QuickLinx Mini RGBHV cables are equipped with solid-center conductors, and are available in 25 and 23 AWG versions. The solid conductor construction provides better performance in signal distance and frequency response than the typical stranded-center conductor cables now available in the market.
The solid-center 25 AWG cable is ideal for longer RGBHV cable runs. The solid-center 23 AWG RGBHV cable is swept to 3 GHz, and perfect for short runs and HD applications. It delivers premium performance for all analog video applications.
Liberty continues to offer a 23 AWG serial digital, single-coaxial legacy cable, which served as the basis for the new RGBHV design. This HD cable is swept to 4.5 GHz. All the cables are available in bulk.
The new ConnecTec Compression Connectors are also available in versions for 25 and 23 AWG cables. The cables’ solid-center conductor allows the use of a one-piece connector, as in Liberty’s popular ConnecTec RG59 and RG6 series of cables. Usually, mini RGB cables have stranded-center conductors and need three- or four-piece connectors for successful termination.
The simpler one-piece connector helps installers using 25 and 23 AWG cables achieve the same time savings they enjoy using the RG59 and RG6 cables. ConnecTec BNC connectors for the new cables are available in nickel-plated versions. RCA connectors are available in both nickel- and gold-plated versions.
Liberty’s QuickLinx Mini RGBHV cables, and ConnecTec Connectors are available now from authorized Liberty dealers. They can be seen with Liberty’s other outstanding products in Booth 142, Colorado Convention Center, during the show.
