AudioQuest and ITC Solutions to Be Utilized in Upcoming Episode of Verizon‘s “My Home 2.0″

IRVINE, Calif. — Nov. 28, 2007 — AudioQuest® and ITC, both part of The Quest Group today announced that several of AudioQuest‘s AV cables, along with ITC instant tool-less connectors, will be used to provide low-distortion, reliable connectivity for a home technological makeover in an upcoming December episode of “My Home 2.0.”

Sponsored by Verizon, “My Home 2.0” shows families how they can realize the full potential of technology to improve their lives. Each show gives a technology-challenged family a complete high-tech makeover, upgrading the family‘s home with the latest networking, home entertainment, and gaming technology and products available — including Verizon‘s innovative FiOS services. Each house upgrade is unveiled at a communitywide block party at which the attendees watch the live action on a JumboTron® and enjoy other festivities.

“In the age of technology, many still fear or reject technology,” said Yue Xu, cohost of “My Home 2.0.” “We find many people who consider technology confusing, complicated, and unreliable. With ‘My Home 2.0,‘ we want to show that technology can be simple, helpful, safe, and fun. The more you embrace it, the more it will improve your life.”

To provide low-distortion, high-performance connectivity between the family‘s new components, several AudioQuest cables utilizing superior metals and advanced geometry and insulation will be used in an upcoming home makeover. The AV cables include 4.5-M HDMI-X high-definition video/audio cables, 1-M Copperhead analog interconnect cables, 4-M Copperhead analog interconnect cables, 1-M VDM-X digital interconnect cables, 1-M OptiLink-G fiber optic digital audio cables, HD6-G video cable, and MAC3-G multiconductor audio/video cable.

In addition, “My Home 2.0” will use ITC 18N-F connectors and ITC 24N-RCA tool-less connectors. Unlike current solder and compression termination systems that require multiple tools, ITC connectors do not require a tool for termination — providing a significant benefit for residential and commercial AV system installers. The ITC tool-less system lowers costs by reducing termination time, complexity, and failure rate.

To ensure long-term, reliable connections, the connectors from ITC feature a captive center pin that securely grips onto the center conductor using a unique spring tension system for maximum contact and conductivity. Thus, the connectors are unique in their ability to be reused easily.

“We are honored to have both AudioQuest AV cables and ITC tool-less connectors featured in ‘My Home 2.0,‘” said William Low, CEO of The Quest Group. “Inferior connectivity between these new components can lead to poor performance or even failure. To this end, AudioQuest cables use superior metals and materials to minimize distortion and yield clean, crisp images and sound from high-end components. Additionally, the ITC connector system offers a high degree of reliability that insures that consumers will not experience downtime waiting for repairs due to compromised connections.”

“My Home 2.0” airs on major local network channels, FiOS TV video-on-demand, and online at http://2pointhome.com.
