ZIGEN Announces New ZIG-CX-100 HDMI Over Coax Extender Kit with 3D Pass-Through Allowing HDMI Signals to be Extended Over a Single RG-6QUAD Coaxial Cable

Award-winning product to be showcased during CEDIA EXPO, September 26-28, 2013 in Denver, CO 

LOS ANGELES, CA and DENVER, CO (CEDIA EXPO Booth #3429) – August 22, 2013 Zigen Corp., a leading provider of reliable and versatile HDMI and audio distribution solutions for the Custom Installation industry, announced today that orders for the new ZIG-CX-100 HDMI over coax extender with 3D pass-through are now shipping. An award-winning solution for residential and commercial Audio Video installations, the ZIG-CX-100enables HDMI with 3D signal to be extended over a single RG-6 quad coaxial cable. Attendees of CEDIA EXPO in Denver, CO September 26-28, 2013 are encouraged to visit booth #3429 to see how ZIG-CX-100 works and to learn more about the Zigen lineup.

Available for immediate delivery, the new Zigen ZIG-CX-100 is a transmitter / receiver extender kit for long distance transmission of HDMI video and embedded audio. The kit comes with built in bi-directional IR and RS-232 control signal pathway that can be passed over the same coaxial cable. It enables 1080p/24Hz with 3D up to 330-ft/100 meters, and is compliant with HDMI 1.4, 3D, HDCP, and DVI – D standards. The ZIG-CX-100 can be used as a point-to-point solution or integrated with matrix switching equipment to extend inputs or outputs to remote locations.

“We developed the ZIG-CX-100 to bring High-Speed HDMI video standards and full feature set – including 3D, bi-directional RS-232 and IR – to infrastructures that utilize coaxial rather than category cables,” said Ed Dellalyan, President of Zigen. “With this new solution, integrators now have a viable alternative for complex jobs involving long distance HDMI video with embedded audio transmission. This is something that’s been needed for some time in commercial installations, older homes with existing coax, and locations with outdoor displays where coax is more durable. As such, not only does it solve problems, it creates opportunities.”

The ZIG-CX-100 is an ideal solution for retrofit work or upgrades where it is impractical or impossible to run new category cables. It works especially well in locations that require multiple displays to show the same HDMI content as it enables up to 250 units to be linked in series to deliver the content to up to 250 displays. The ZIG-CX-100 is priced at $699 MSRP and orders are being accepted now for immediate delivery.

Interested parties are encouraged to visit Zigen during CEDIA EXPO in booth #3429, where the line will be fully showcased. More information about Zigen and the new ZIG-CX-100 can be obtained by calling (877) 650-5252, visiting www.zigencorp.com, or by emailing info@zigencorp.com.

ICE Cable’s “Big Mouth Payout” Bulk Cable Box Saves Integrators Time and Money

Proprietary cable-wind, massive pay-out hole and heavily reinforced box eliminates headaches caused by common “fall-apart” boxes and tangled cable messes

Los Angeles, CA – August 21, 2013 – ICE Cable Systems (2013 CEDIA Expo booth #1552) — which serves integrators both directly and via more than 50 distributors in North America and internationally – is now shipping its new Big Mouth Payout (BMP) bulk wire & cable box. BMP incorporates four distinct design advantages that help the integrator run more efficiently on the jobsite.

4-inch payout hole and proprietary winding pattern
The BMP box combines a 4-inch payout hole with a proprietary cable-winding pattern. According to ICE president Brian Rizzo, the payout is more than twenty times larger than what’s currently available on the market today. “Our payout and wind pattern help eliminate everyday pull-problems like kinking, knotting, recoil and tangling. Removing these obstacles makes a one-man wire pull — for example from atop a ladder — significantly easier,” says Rizzo.

Ascending and descending foot-markers
Incorporated on the cable jackets are ascending and descending foot-markers which make it effortless for the integrator to identify how much cable has been used and how much remains. The result is optimal usage of the entire wind and the elimination of scrap; it also solves the common problem of tracking usage which according to Rizzo can often be difficult when more than one technician pulls from the same box.

Ultra-durable, weather resistant cardboard box with reinforced handles
To withstand abuse on the jobsite, the BMP box is comprised of an extremely durable water resistant cardboard along with dual-layer reinforced handles. According to Rizzo the cardboard is burst-tested to withstand 21 kilograms of force which far surpasses what is currently available in the channel today.

”BMP is a great example of ICE Cable’s understanding of what’s important to the integrator,” says Wally Whinna, principal of Allnet Distributing and board member of the Catalyst AV network, which distributes ICE Cable nationally. “Advantages like this make it easier for integrators to finish their pre-wire jobs faster and with less hassle.”

All box cables (category, speaker, coax, alarm, control, etc.) by ICE ship in a BMP box, many of which are available in runs as long as 1,000 feet.
