Chicago, IL (August 23, 2004)–Tripp Lite, a world-leading manufacturer of power protection equipment, is proud to introduce a new line of products (including surge suppressors, UPS systems and cables) designed specifically for home/business theater applications. For the new products, Tripp Lite has adapted the same state-of-the-art technology which has established a trusted reputation for reliability in the computer market and applied it to satisfy the unique needs of the home/business theater market.
“Tripp Lite has taken the same award-winning technology found in its #1 selling Isobar surge suppressor line and adapted it to the home/business theater market to provide the highest levels of protection and performance enhancement,” said Karenann Brow, Tripp Lite Senior Product Manager. “After installing Tripp Lite’s superior surge and line noise protection, home/business theater enthusiasts can see and hear the difference as components perform at their peak: sharper, crisper video; deeper, fuller audio; and longer component life spans. Competitive value pricing means the budget of any size home/business theater system, from entry-level to custom-designed, can accommodate the maximum protection Tripp Lite provides. Tripp Lite’s new Home/Business Theater products are designed for use with every component: high-definition TVs, VCRs, DVD recorders, Personal Video Recorders (PVRs), satellite and A/V receivers, DVD/CD players and more.”
One facet of Tripp Lite’s new product line includes five new Home/Business Theater Surge Suppressors: HTPOWERBAR10, HT10DBS, HT1010SAT3, HT706TSAT and HT706TV. Compared to other surge suppressors in their class, all Tripp Lite Home/Business Theater Surge Suppressors feature the highest joule ratings (which measure surge-stopping power) along with the highest insurance levels (which cover connected equipment against surge damage). Premium features on select models include up to 5700 joules surge protection, up to $500,000 Ultimate Lifetime Insurance with Data Recovery Warranty, up to 10 outlets, up to 8 ft. cords, color-coordinated outlet/plug labels, isolated filter banks and metal housings. Signal line protection on select models includes up to 3-line coaxial (gold) surge protection, 1-line tel/modem surge protection and 1-line Ethernet (100BaseT, high-speed) surge protection. In addition to the five new Home/Business Theater models, Tripp Lite provides a complete line of other surge suppressors (in strip or rackmount format) for both home/business theater and computer applications.
If home/business theater applications require battery backup support in addition to surge suppression and line noise filtering, Tripp Lite offers a new Home/Business Theater UPS System: HT1500UPS. The HT1500UPS provides up to 3 hours of battery backup support during recording to preserve settings and recorded programs though blackouts and brownouts (low voltage). Premium features include a stylish, low-profile housing, 8 outlets, 6 ft. cord, outlet/plug labels and $100,000 Ultimate Lifetime Insurance. 4 outlets provide full battery support and surge suppression to protect components that need to be constantly powered and supported, such as recorders or receivers. 4 additional surge-suppression-only outlets are ideal for protecting items which do not require battery support, such as lighting. Signal line protection includes 1-line coaxial (gold) surge protection and 1-line tel/modem surge protection. A built-in USB port and PowerAlert Software is provided for automatic, unattended shutdown of a PC receiver. In addition to the new Home/Business Theater model, Tripp Lite provides a complete line of other UPS systems (in low-profile, undermonitor, tower or rackmount formats) for both home/business theater and computer applications.
In addition to surge suppressors and UPS systems, Tripp Lite has also introduced a new Home/Business Theater Connectivity product line which includes RGB coax, S-video, DVI video, high resolution audio, digital-optical audio, subwoofer, FireWire, USB 2.0 cables and more. The new cables provide all components with superior audio/video connection solutions with premium shielding and gold connectors on most models.
