FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
TELFORD, UK — 04 May 2011 — C2G the preferred provider and trusted expert of high performance cabling and connectivity solutions, has launched the TruLink HDMI over Cat5e Extender, a robust solution that extends HDMI signal up to 60 metres over two Cat5 UTP patch cables. This solution addresses the challenge of successfully sending High-definition TV signals over long distances where regular HDMI wiring would struggle to perform effectively.
The TruLink HDMI over Cat5e Extender is ideal for applications where HDMI monitors need to be placed further than ten metres apart, which is the average limitation for HDMI cables. This means it is well suited for retail stores, classrooms, and offices where video equipment is typically located in one room, but where the source is out of sight and placed in a safe and secure environment.
Compared to similar devices like fibre optic or wireless extenders, the HDMI over Cat5e Extender provides a cost effective way to optimise picture quality with the added benefit of no signal issues, which regularly occur with a wireless device. Packaged in an attractive and tough outer case, the HDMI over Cat5e Extender is compact and durable enough to work reliably while placed conveniently out of sight. Justin Hulls, UK Sales Director for C2G commented: "This product is ideally suited to anyone who wants to extend their HDMI signal up to a 60m distance and provide a high quality picture for home or office, home theatre and gaming and video production. It overcomes many of the limitations of competitor solutions for a fraction of the price."
The C2G TruLink HDMI over Cat5e Extender is available immediately through retailers including Amazon from £104.37.
