A New Cabling System That "Will Likely Revolutionize
The Custom Installation Industry"

Now Available!

Dayton, Ohio November 16, 2005 -

Impact Acoustics, a leading manufacturer of high performance audio/video connectivity solutions, proudly presents RapidRun™ - a new, patent -pending Multi Use versatile Interconnect system! RapidRun is a modular cable system that consists of two Runners™ and a selection of eight BreakAway™ termination jumpers (or DECORA®* style wall plates coming soon!). The Runners enable easy pull -through while the BreakAways allow you to change terminations in seconds.

The RapidRun system can easily handle UXGA, RGBHV, Component, Composite and S -video along with left and right audio or S/PDIF digital audio signals, in runs from 15 feet to 150 feet. Our unique connector system allows a Runner base cable to be pulled through a ¾ -inch conduit with up to a 90 -degree sweep. The locking connector enables perfect termination in seconds for either wall plate or flying -lead BreakAway applications. RapidRun is available in either PVC or Plenum versions for a wide variety of installation environments and applications. The modular design allows a cable carrying a VGA signal, for instance, to be easily and almost instantly re -terminated for component HDTV - what incredible flexibility! Additionally, RapidRun supports mix -and -match terminations for custom combination or break -out connections! RapidRun truly is a Multi Use Versatile Interconnect system.

Here's how easy it is to customize your installation (or use our easy -to -use online tool to quickly plan your installation:

1. Choose Your Runner

RapidRun Runners are available in 15, 25, 35, 50, 75, 100, 125 and 150 -foot lengths, and come complete with a protective pull cap rated for 15 lb/ft of pulling tension to keep the connection free of debris. There are two
choices for Runners:

(1) The PC/Video (UXGA) Runner designed primarily for presentation applications using a computer and projector or other large display. This cable provides three close -tolerance coaxial conductors with full, independent braided shielding and four twisted pairs. Use this runner for: UXGA (HD15) computer signals.

(2) The HT (or 5 -Coax) Runner designed primarily for audio/video applications such as a home theater installation or a multi -room A/V hookup. This cable provides five 75 -ohm mini -coax conductors, each individually shielded and designed for maximum flexibility. Use this runner for: component video with s -video or component video with digital audio.

Use either runner for: RGBHV, component video (3RCA), or analog audio with your choice of component video, s -video or composite video.

2. Choose Your Terminations

Termination options include termination jumpers or DECORA®* style wall plates for the following signals:

(a) HD15 for UXGA Video
(b) 5 -BNC for RGBHV
(c) 5 -RCA for Component Video + Audio
(d) 3 -RCA plus S -Video for Component Video + S -Video
(e) 4 -RCA for Component Video + Digital Audio
(f) 3 -RCA for Component Video
(g) 2 -RCA plus S -Video for S -Video + L/R Audio
