Kramer Cat-5 And Speaker Cables


Kramer Electronics has introduced three new products: the BC-XTP and BCP-XTP XGA twisted pair cables designed to eliminate skew, and the BC-2S speaker cable. The BCP-XTP and BC-XTP resemble typical Cat-5e cable, but with internal components optimized for transmission of video/audio signals rather than high-speed data. This is accomplished by twisting all four pairs of wire at the same ratio so the actual length of all four pairs is identical. While this configuration renders it unsuitable for high-speed data, in a video/audio application each of the RGB color signals now arrive at the destination at the same time. The result is an image with no color shift or skew.
