Cables to Go Enhances RapidRun Modular Cabling System.LAS VEGAS Las Vegas (läs vā`gəs), city (1990 pop. 258,295), seat of Clark co., S Nev.; inc. 1911. It is the largest city in Nevada and the center of one of the fastest-growing urban areas in the United States. -- Cables To Go[TM], a leading provider of high-performance cabling and connectivity solutions, today announced enhancements to its award-winning RapidRun[TM] modular cabling system. The new products and upgrades provide users with new termination options, capability for longer runs and greater flexibility.
The RapidRun system supports multiple signals over a single cable. In order to upgrade or change equipment, users only need to change the cable terminal, known as the break-away flying lead or break-away wall plate. For example, switching from composite video A video color format that combines all three YUV video signals into one channel. The first video signal to include color, composite video transmits brightness/luma (Y) and colors/chroma (U and V) over one cable. NTSC, PAL and SECAM television sets have composite video inputs. to high-definition component video would typically require a new cable to be run, but RapidRun only requires a new break-away on the end of the cable.

"RapidRun saves us about 20 to 30 percent of our installation time compared to bulk cable, and it is extremely valuable to be able to easily change from one termination type In lithic reduction, termination type is a characteristic indicating the manner in which the distal end of a lithic flake detaches from a core (Andrefsky 1998:18). Common types include:
New additions to the system include:
* 75- and 100-foot RapidRun Digital[TM] Runner[TM] cables for high definition video and active receivers to maintain signal quality across greater distances.
* Digital flying-lead terminations with integrated extenders for runs up to 65 feet, for installations where a wall plate extender See Media Center Extender, bus extender and DOS extender. is not desirable.
* Aluminum wall plates with multiple signal connections in a single box, including connectors for composite video, audio, PC video, S-Video and keystone key·stone

RapidRun comes with a variety of connectors for computer, audio/video and high-definition signals. A single cable runs to the box, and it takes just a few seconds to attach the appropriate flying lead or wall plate. It is also much easier to pull a cable behind a wall with a pull cap than to pull a cable with a VGA (Video Graphics Array) The display standard for the PC.
