ADCOM Bows GFR -700HD & GTP -870 Home Theater Products

ADCOM's newest components include the National Semiconductor AVC2510 Video DSP - allowing analog video sources to be scaled up to and including 1080p/60 Hz and output via HDMI

SCOTTSDALE, AZ - July 21st, 2006 - ADCOM LLC, a legacy brand of premium audio and

video equipment for the home, today announced two new home theater components that
expand on ADCOM's 30 -year history of innovation: the GFR -700HD A/V Receiver and the
GTP -870HD A/V Processor, which include National Semiconductor's Adaptive Video
Format Converter.
"The consumer today has available a wide range of audio and video formats, not to mention
a vast number of HDTV display options. With these two new products ADCOM has met the
challenge posed by the wide range of content along with various connectivity and display
resolution issues. Consumers can now bring in analog video sources and choose the best
output resolution for their display whether it is 480p, 720p, VGA, 1080i @ 50/60 Hz or 1080p
@ 50/60 Hz," said Dan Donnelly, ADCOM's Managing Director.
The GFR -700HD is a derivative of ADCOM's current GFR -700 A/V Receiver. Both the
GFR -700 and the GFR -700HD share the same Dolby* and DTS** audio processing
technology, number of audio and video inputs and the legendary ADCOM power of
125WPC. For those consumers that have made the jump to HDTV and have HDMI inputs
on their display ADCOM's GFR -700HD allows the end -user's cable box, video games, DVD
and broadcast television programming to be scaled to match the display's native HD
resolution. The GTP -870HD is ADCOM's latest 7.1 -Channel A/V Processor solution. Along with a full
compliment of industry -standard audio and video inputs, the GTP -870 also sports balanced
(XLR) outputs for use with ADCOM's most powerful multichannel amplifiers. The GTP -
870HD also incorporates the National Semiconductor Video Converter and like the GFR -
700HD allows the user to configure each video input for the proper resolution needed for
their HD display.
The GFR -700HD will have a MSRP of $2899. The GTP -870HD will list for $2499. The
GFR -700HD is expected to ship in August and the GTP -870HD in September.

Platinum Tools EZ-RJPRO Termination Pod

Our new EZ-RJPRO Termination Pod is designed for the professional installer providing everything he needs for consistent, repeatable terminations and overall quicker and easier installations," explained John Phillips, Platinum Tools, Inc. product manager. "This heavy duty kit is the perfect solution when working with both delicate as well as high performance, larger OD cables that are tougher to terminate due to larger wire gauges, thicker, harder insulation on the conductors and pair separating splines. Not only will you overcome these connectivity obstacles but you can be assured that every termination will meet FCC specifications.
