IDEAL Introduces OmniCONN RCA Connectors

SYCAMORE, IL, January 22, 2008 –

Targeting the commercial and residential A/V markets, IDEAL INDUSTRIES, INC. announced today its new OmniCONN™ RCA compression connectors, designed to optimize the purity of component video and audio signals on standard RG 6 or RG 59 coaxial cables with bandwidth ranging up to 3 GHz.

"New OmniCONN RCA connectors are perfect for contractors looking to quickly terminate cables to custom lengths for exact installation purposes," noted Jeremy Corn, Marketing Support Specialist, IDEAL INDUSTRIES, INC. "Because of the extreme difficulty in terminating an HDMI cable, we expect RCA to become the preferred connection among installers of home theater, commercial and educational A/V systems."

Thoughtfully designed to assure easier installations and to achieve consistent terminations that hold true, OmniCONN RCA connectors are precision-molded of nickel-plated brass with a gold-plated center contact pin. This engineering results in minimum return loss (-30 dB@3GHz), nominal 75-Ohm impedance, and maximum contact area for outstanding picture definition and natural sound reproduction.

IDEAL OmniCONNís radial compression design ensures the most secure termination. Plus, by combining a Delrin/Nylon adapter sleeve with an inner "O" ring, the connector provides double protection for a watertight seal. Attachable color bands are included (R, G, B, Y, W) to help configure and identify the cableís function, eliminating the need to purchase multiple-color connectors.

IDEAL OmniCONN RCA connectors are compatible with the companyís OmniSEAL compression tools, sold separately. They are available in convenient jars of 35 connectors with 50 color rings or 10 connectors with 14 rings.

IDEAL OmniCONN RCA connectors meet SCTE cable retention guidelines.
