FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
TELFORD, UK — 12 December 2012 — C2G, the preferred provider and trusted expert of high performance cabling and connectivity solutions, announced it has been selected by concert organizer, FIX8Group to deliver a clean connectivity solution to support multiple projectors, lighting design, and an interactive experience with the necessary cabling and connectivity panels for video and audio integration and distribution. C2G provides RapidRun™, the TruLink® Media Gateway, and DVI cabling to support the quality connectivity requirements for FIX8Group as they prepare for their clients' events. FIX8Group creates the audio-visual atmosphere for tours, concerts, and shows. Some of their more popular work includes events for Rihanna, Jay Z, Cheryl Cole, Strictly Come Dancing, Royal Variety Performance-and even the set of X-Factor.
RapidRun is used to connect multiple projectors in venues, while runner cables deliver the signals to wall plates for a plug and play experience with their equipment. The TruLink Media Gateway Connectivity Panel is used in the FIX8Group conference rooms to accommodate the various client devices, and allows the FIX8Group employees to quickly display their project ideas. It is a powerful all-in-one audio/video connectivity panel that enables users to easily connect laptops, iPod®/iPad®/iPhone® devices, digital/video cameras, and Blu-ray™ or DVD players. Furthermore, only one HDMI® output cable is required to accommodate the multiple A/V inputs. With this feature, the Media Gateway alleviates the unappealing look of multiple cables throughout the conference room and assists in delivering a high end look and feel to customers.
Neil Trenell, owner and president of FIX8Group, recognised the expertise of C2G to deliver the most reliable and aesthetic solution. "RapidRun delivers a clean, finished look that maintains the quality expected by our clients," stated Trenell. "In addition, RapidRun carries multiple signals over one runner cable which eliminated unsightly, copious cabling."
FIX8Group utilises numerous DVI cables from C2G to connect equipment and turn any venue into an immersive production. With every venue, FIX8Group requires DVI cables that guarantee reliable digital signals necessary for a quality event. The connectors on C2G's DVI cables possess screws that tightly fasten into equipment. This ability to secure the cable ensures it will not accidentally disconnect and spoil the special effects of a live event, which in such instances, FIX8Group would be fined.
At all venues, FIX8Group trusts C2G to deliver connectivity solutions that meet and exceed the audio-visual requirements of their clients. C2G offers differentiated solutions-such as RapidRun-that eliminate multiple cabling pulls and results in the professional look needed to persuade celebrities, entertainers, and other clients to select FIX8Group as their technical experts of choice.

The FIX8Group team focuses on video system integration, lighting design, and interactive experiences-as well as consultancy and content creation.
