STEVENSVILLE, Md. April 22, 2009 - Centronics, Inc. (centronics.com), a leading distributor of audio, video, and accessory products for the residential, commercial, and security markets since 1959, is proud to announce the launch of the Elite HD -branded DHCT5 2x1 Cat5E to HDMI converter. The new DHCT5 is now available with an MSRP of $299.99.


"The DHCT5 automatically switches between the devices via simplex switching technology," explained Tony Pelura, Centronics general manager. "It allows the conversion of two HDMI devices to be run over a single Cat5e cable, so it not only solves the problem of having only a single Cat5e wire, but it works as a switcher, as well."
