New Innovative Products at CEDIA EXPO 2010:

Field-Terminatable HDMI Connector
At CEDIA EXPO 2010, BTX will showcase the industry’s first field-terminatable HDMI cable-mount male connector. The innovative device allows installers to create quickly and easily custom-length HDMI assemblies of up to 39 feet at resolutions of 1080p, 12-bit deep color. For A/V, home theater, digital signage, or any other application requiring HDMI, the device resolves the issue of fitting a connector through conduit, and eliminates excess cable behind the rack or inside a wall. Compatible with HDMI 1.4, the connector is terminated through an insulation displacement connection (IDC) process, which provides an extremely secure and reliable connection, only requires a blade and an HDMI hand tool, and can easily be accomplished with minimal training or skill.

BTX PRO Plate & Panel Designer Software
This free new software solution makes it easier than ever for customers to order and configure the company’s professional line of wall plates and panels. BTX’s ordering and configuration application is so simple that anyone can start using it within a matter of minutes. Here’s how it works:

- Users download and register BTX PRO Plate & Panel Designer software from www.btx.com.
- Then, they drag a wall plate or rack panel from BTX’s extensive product library and start designing and configuring. Connector options appear in an easy-to-navigate menu and users simply drag-and-drop their choices to the desired spot on the plate or panel.
- Following configuration, users may add optional engraving if desired.
- Finally, the user approves the price shown in real time on the screen and clicks “Enter” to complete the order.

Through the software, BTX customers have easy access to all the popular connectors from manufacturers such as Neutrik(R) and Switchcraft(R), in addition to BTX’s own award-winning connectors.

MaxBlox(R) Solderless Termination System
Manufactured with genuine Phoenix Contact terminal blocks for a truly reliable connection, connectors in the MaxBlox(R) solderless termination system feature a patented design that is better, faster, and stronger than anything else on the market. MaxBlox dramatically reduces installation time and cost by eliminating the need for soldering or crimping, and the unique sled-type bottom allows these connectors to slide, snap, and lock into the patent-pending MaxBlox CD-MX915H hood for a secure cable-mount connection.

The MaxBlox family includes HD15, DB9, S-video, and 3.5-mm connectors, and now the new BTX-MXRCA screw-terminating RCA panel mount connector. The BTX-MXRCA requires only a strip tool and a screwdriver, and when used alongside BTX’s other solderless connectors, labor time is reduced tremendously.
