Cable Solves Hi-Res Distribution for IP-Addressable Devices and Displays

DENVER CO, SEPTEMBER 14, 2006 - Sheer Wire (formally Sheer Sound), the industry leader in home theater and automation wire and cable products, introduces its Component Video & Cat5E Hybrid series of cables at CEDIA 2006 (Booth #527). The Sheer Wire Component Video & Cat5E Hybrid Cables are intended for video applications that require the distribution of high -resolution component video with Cat5E for IP -addressable devices or displays. This new series is available in two types: a six coax with one category 5E version and a six coax with two category 5E version.


The video elements of the Component Video & Cat5E Hybrid Cable are 25 gage solid miniature HDTV coaxial cables, which feature low attenuation, 3GHz bandwidth, gas -injected dielectric, dual foil and braid shield, and are 100% swept test to meet or exceed industry standards. The Category 5E four -pair element(s) has a 350MHz bandwidth and features electrical specifications that exceed TIA/EIA 568 -B.2 requirements and is ETL verified.

Sheer Wire's Component Video & Cat5E Hybrid Cables have a flexible and low -friction UL -rated outer jacket that is easy to install and suitable for permanent installation. In addition to the standard version, plenum versions are also available.

Wire achieves a solution to both high -resolution component video distribution and the increasing number of IP addressable devices."
