Atlona's UL-certified LinkConnect Plenum HDMI cables provide a long length, high-bandwidth solution that's rugged enough for various commercial installations.
November 28, 2012 | by CI Staff

Atlona is a diverse manufacturer that designs and engineers a variety of signal distribution and management equipment for the residential and commercial electronics markets.

The Skinny: Just prior to Thanksgiving 2012, Atlona started shipping its LinkConnect Plenum HDMI cables.

The Specs: According to the company, the cable is designed to meet the safety and reliability demands of commercial installations in environments that include above drop ceilings and below raised floors, and the hazards of smoke inhalation in the event of a fire. Atlona points out that National Electrical Code (NEC) specifies the use of plenum-certified cables in these spaces that can withstand high temperatures without emitting significant fumes. To meet this requirement the company adds it employs a CMP-certified Kynar jacket that is capable of withstanding temperatures up to 125 degrees Celsius.

The California company says the 24AWG cables are available in lengths of 25 feet, 35 feet, 50 feet and 75 feet. Atlona says the 50 foot and 75 foot lengths utilize active technologies to ensure reliable signal transmission. The cable feature a bandwidth of 4.95Gbps to support computer resolutions as high as 1920x1200, and A/V formats such as 1080p and 3D video, and the Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio lossless surround sound formats.

Solutions: The cables can be used in boardrooms, retail environments and other commercial properties that require A/V signal distribution.
