What A Technology Geek REALLY Wants for Christmas!

The Perfect Gifts for an A/V Enthusiast


TELFORD, UK — 14 November 2011C2G — There's a very good chance that you've already spent hours, if not days, racking your brain over what to get your geek this year for Christmas. Back in the day it was so much easier to get it right, a few games and a new supply of short-sleeved shirts normally did the trick. Ordinarily, normal cables wouldn't be top of the agenda, but the new swivel connection cables from C2G are no normal cables.

The first is the C2G VGA270/UXGA monitor cable which enables connectivity to a computer or a laptop for a TV screen with SVGA in, or a wall mounted monitor. What makes it special is the 270° HD15 connectors on each end rotate side-to-side in almost a complete circle, allowing you to position the cable to fit any weird and wonderful installation and the connectors feature detents, or click-stops, every 90° to ensure signal integrity is maintained.

The second is the Velocity HDMI® cable for high performance home theatre which features two HDMI swivel connectors and an HDMI output for DVD, Sky-HD and gaming devices. The cable delivers a strong combination of performance and value, while two rotating joints allow each HDMI connector end to bend and rotate 180°.

Thirdly is a the world's first USB A/B cable with a flexible connector which is the ideal solution for connecting your USB devices to your laptop, desktop PC, or Mac and to plug into an open USB port from any angle. You can use it with portable USB storage devices including CD/DVD drives, MP3 players, wireless devices and with 90° horizontal and vertical hinges, you can connect your USB devices in neat and convenient places.

Andy Hill, Commercial director for C2G commented: "The unique design of our swivel connectors makes them ideally suited for applications, where space is tight. For instance, behind a wall mount flat screen TV, or perhaps an AV device such as a Sky box, which has to be located tightly to a wall. They are built to last and represent value for money, making them an ideal choice as a stocking filler for an AV enthusiast."

The C2G swivel flex cables are available immediately through retailers including Amazon starting from £8.00. VGA270 monitor cable, Velocity cable, USB cable.
