Posted by K.D. Aiardo on Aug 7, 2018 11:00:00 AM


Liberty AV Solutions, known for their innovative solutions driven by user feedback, has once again delivered an industry changer.

Debuting at InfoComm 2018 earlier this year, Liberty AV released the new category cable termination system, ConnecTec Cat (CT Cat) . Received with open arms by technicians and installers alike, the system tackles common complaints and instantly delivers a cost and time savings to cable termination process.

Not being one to simply just talk a good game, Liberty AV put the simplicity and quality of use into action at the show with their, ‘CT Cat: Race to Win’ contest where installers came out in droves to compete for the best termination time. 

Quickly, the installers competing found that the system was quick to use and delivered a high-quality termination, with the average installation time of 90 seconds or less, with the winner of the contest, Vic Lomeli nearly cutting the average in half with an unbelievable 55-second termination time. 

Vic, formerly of AV Spaces and current owner/chief integrator of Network Audio Video Integrations LLC was impressed with the termination, stating that it “feels extremely solid… I've wiggled and bent the cable to an extreme measure to see if it would cause a fault in its connectivity, but upon inspection everything remains intact.  Working in small spaces where the cable maybe has to make a sharp 90° turn I have encountered connections becoming undone or wire pop out of the pinched down termination.”
