At CEDIA EXPO 2010, PPC® will unveil its new PPC PRO™ line of connectors and cables. Designed to provide flexibility for A/V professionals at live events, in the studio and for commercial installations, PPC's latest offering features compression connectors for XLR; ¼-inch mono and ¼-inch stereo/balanced connectors; as well as RCA, BNC, and F-type connectors, allowing for solderless, customized cable lengths suited to every run and every venue. In addition, the PPC PRO lineup will include all-new, specially designed cables and installation tools for use with PPC PRO connectors, making a perfect system for perfect sound.

Perfect Path™ PerfectLock™ Locking HDMI Cable — Superior High-Quality Performance With PerfectLock™ Connectors
The patented, industry-first Perfect Path™ PerfectLock™ locking HDMI cable grips a port with ten times the strength of conventional connectors for more than 25 pounds of retention. Delivering top-quality 1080p HDTV video and Dolby® Digital DTS-HD Master Audio and Dolby TrueHD audio, the cable features unsurpassed reliability with the distinctive strength and flexibility afforded by Perfect Path's Perfect Flex™ jacket. Additionally, supporting in-wall use, PerfectLock features PerfectLink™ technology to maintain signal continuity and eliminate pixel loss/distortion for lengths more than 40 feet. The cable is HDMI 1.4 compliant, offers future-proof support for 3D TV and 4K x 2K resolution, and includes Ethernet Channel support, providing high-speed bidirectional communication for all connected devices, thus reducing the need for a separate Ethernet cable.

Perfect Path™ RCA Locking Cable
At CEDIA EXPO 2010, PPC® will showcase the Perfect Path™ RCA Locking Cable, built to eliminate the problem of loose RCA cables. PPC's locking RCA connector features a unique design that allows the outer body to turn. When turned clockwise, an active wedge inside the connector causes the outer ground shield to lock down on the port for increased retention. This allows for a secure connection on RCA ports of any size with only a quarter turn. Further, the locking RCA connector eliminates the need for soldering, making it easily removable by turning it counterclockwise, and also offers true 75-ohm performance through the port. The connector features a rugged construction from all-brass components and high-end plating.
