Cables To Go Runs Digital Signals over Analog Cables with RapidRun

Cables To Go HDMI over 5-Coax Adapter enables high-quality digital signals to be sent over RapidRun and other 5-coax analog cables without any signal degradation.

Cables To Go™, a leading provider of high -performance cabling and connectivity solutions, today announced the ability to run digital signals over analog cables with its award -winning RapidRun™ modular cabling system and standard 5 -coax cables. By enabling an analog cable to carry a digital signal, users can avoid costly cable upgrades and the hassle of replacing an in -wall cable installation.


"Cables to Go has developed RapidRun, the only digital modular cabling system available, in order to provide customers with versatility and simplicity in their cabling installations," said Bill Diederich, president of Lastar, parent company of Cables To Go. "With the ability to carry a digital signal over an analog cable, we are continuing to innovate and provide solutions that our customers want but never thought were possible."

The Cables To Go HDMI over 5 -Coax Adapter comes with a transmitter unit and receiver unit for each end of the cable along with a power adapter. The HDMI adapter allows a 1080p signal to be run up to 150 feet over an analog RapidRun runner cable or a 5 -coax cable. By using RapidRun, users also get the advantages of the RapidRun modular cabling system, and RapidRun cables are plenum -rated for use in schools and other commercial applications.

The RapidRun system supports multiple signals over a single cable. In order to upgrade or change equipment, users only need to change the cable terminal, known as the break -away flying lead or break -away wall plate. The RapidRun system has a cable for transmitting digital signals and another cable for analog signals. Both cables will continue to be available, but customers who installed an analog cable and now need to transmit a digital signal can add a converter to the line to avoid ripping out and replacing the existing cabling.

RapidRun comes with a variety of connectors for computer, audio/video and high -definition signals. A single cable runs to the box, and it takes just a few seconds to attach the appropriate flying lead or wall plate. It is also much easier to pull a cable behind a wall with a pull cap than
to pull a cable with a VGA or HDMI plug on the end. The system provides customers with reliability, ease of installation, flexibility, versatility and value.

The Cables To Go HDMI over 5 -Coax Adapter will be available in Q4 2008 from Cables To Go channel partners. It will also be shown at CEDIA 2008 in Booth 255 at the Colorado Convention Center. For more information about Cables To Go please visit http://www.cablestogo.com.
