Mohawk, a leading manufacturer of copper cable and fiber optic products, announces the release of the indoor/outdoor version of Spectrum low skew video twisted pair cable. First in the industry to offer this solution, Mohawk developed this cable in response to our “Voice of the Customer” initiative, while the use of digital signage applications for marketing and advertising continue to strengthen.
This product begins with Mohawk’s Spectrum design of four twisted pairs under one jacket. This is a great alternative to coax for RGB (Red, Green, Blue) video applications or component style video broadcasts. The product is then enhanced with a water-blocked design and a black sunlight-resistant jacket. Spectrum I/O was designed for applications that run from inside a building to outside locations. It can be installed in flood-prone indoor locations or outdoor duct locations where standard plenum or riser-rated cables fail. It is suitable for outdoor applications in addition to having a UL/CM rating for indoor applications.
As with our Spectrum cable, the indoor/outdoor design is built strictly for video transmission and will not support other data-type applications. The primary market served is in Digital Signage, which includes retail, education, banking, government, hospitality and transportation. A secondary market is the broadcast arena for in-studio video monitors.
