“With HDBaseT, installers are running video, audio, Ethernet, control and power all on one cable, all of which requires equipment ‘handshakes’ on each end,” points out Brian Rizzo, president of ICE Cable Systems. “We want to help installers do it right the first time so they can move onto other areas of the job. ICE Cable has spared no expense in the making of our product—-from the quality and quantity of copper and compounds we use, to our tangle-free dispensers.”
