InfoComm 2014 - Leanest-Longest, Fastest-Strongest; C2G Introduces RapidRun Optical at InfoComm 2014

The fiber-based design provides the most significant additions to the RapidRun modular cabling product line since its introduction in 2005.

Dayton, OH June 17, 2014


C2G (http://www.c2g.com), the preferred provider and trusted expert of high performance cabling and connectivity solutions, will launch the newest version of what has become the standard for modular A/V cabling, RapidRun. The new fiber-based RapidRun Optical provides all the cost and time savings of RapidRun, with the high performance needed to carry today's UltraHD digital signals.

RapidRun Optical is the leanest-longest, fastest-strongest RapidRun product yet! Designed to be the standard for in-wall audio/video installations, it is capable of transmitting high definition digital A/V signals up to 1,000 feet. The solution features 18Gbps bandwidth, a diameter of just a half inch and OFNP (plenum) rating, providing sufficient bandwidth to serve the audio/video needs of commercial applications from classrooms to lecture halls and auditoriums to boardrooms for years to come. Its fiber-based construction prevents electromagnetic and radio frequency interference, allowing it to be used in the most sensitive environments such as healthcare and government facilities.

"RapidRun has long been the standard for modular cabling solutions," explains Garry Dukes, director of product management at C2G. "With the introduction of RapidRun Optical, we are bringing to market the next generation of modular cabling solutions that address the needs of today's A/V applications - namely, delivering high definition digital content over longer distances. By leveraging the original RapidRun modular cabling concept combined with advances in cabling technology, we are able to deliver a smaller, faster and longer solution to A/V integration and installation professionals."

As part of its RapidRun showcase, C2G will also release two new upgrade kits that are designed to be used with an existing RapidRun Multi-Format or PC installation. These kits require a simple switching out of the existing connector cables (also called flying leads) and wall plates, rather than pulling a new runner cable.

The new RR digital upgrade kits are available today and the new RR Optical is available now for pre-orders and is expected to be available to ship July 18th. These RapidRun solutions will be on display at InfoComm, June 18 - 20, 2014, in C2G's Booth: C6019. For more information, please visit http://www.c2g.com.

ELK Products -C1M1 Dual-Path Alarm Communicators with Remote Services

C1M1 offers a truly significant reduction in transmission time in comparison to other communicators that rely on dial capture or data bus decoding. This can result in quicker response time to emergency situations which could save lives and assets. By providing both IP and cellular pathways, C1M1 provides the reliability installers are looking for in an alarm communicator. C1M1 eliminates port forwarding and extra fees for remote access. Installers can remotely upload/download programming changes to M1 controls over IP or cellular using ElkRP2. Consumers can control the M1 remotely via the free ElkLink mobile app and web portal, as well as eKeypad and M1 Touch Pro apps. Other IP-based software and interface partners can connect to the M1 control over the local network through C1M1. C1M1 also provides email/text notifications for arm, disarm, and alarm events. ELK-C1M14GSM supports GSM (AT&T/T-Mobile) networks and ELK-C1M1CDMA supports CDMA (Verizon) networks.
