DirectConnect® introduces a new generation of cascading audio/video technology over a SINGLE CAT5!

Single CAT5 stainless steel wall plate design Balun kit

Houston, TX, September 2008 - DirectConnect®, a leading supplier of advanced connectivity for all types of displays, provides assurance to customers and installers that the Cat5 products they purchase meet significant performance standards at great value and quality. With over 10 years of interconnect technology experience, DirectConnect® has announced and is currently shipping multiuse Component Video technology with both digital audio and analog audio (L &R), plus 12 -volts -out Balun.

The DirectConnect® TPRJFCVBDAAWP Balun Kit provides the flexibility a custom installer/system integrator needs, eliminating signal loss up to 500' (150M) with video resolution of 720P/1080i from its source. This pair of active circuitry with 12V/500mA CEC -compliant switching adaptors sends digital audio (coaxial) input/output, two channels of analog audio input/output, and component video over a single CAT5. Great for multi -room A/V distribution systems with optional additional receivers (not included). The balanced signals eliminate ground loops and resist interference to supply a clear picture. Single CAT5 provides cost -effective expandability, is cascading with additional receivers, and supplies a 12 Volt output on each receiver. Easy installation: The Stainless Steel Transmitter and Receiver can be installed in a standard single gang wall box. Versatile: The Balun Kit functions with the use of only one CAT5 with devices such as component video and digital or analog audio output like DVD players/recorders, satellite or cable boxes, HDTV displays, set -top boxes, projectors, and other related equipment to support up to 720P/1080i video and digital or analog audio.

DirectConnect also manufactures patented and patent -pending products, HDMI™ products, wall plates, splitters, distribution panels, and a host of other valuable solutions and applications that address the custom installation needs.
