Gepco's LSK series of ultra-low-skew UTP cables is designed for the transmission of component analog video in a twisted-pair format without hardware delay compensation. Different from category-grade networking cables, the LSK cables have a consistent pair lay with a maximum time delay differential of 2ns (per 100m) between any two pairs. Each pair within the LSK series is constructed from 23-gauge solid copper and a precision 100Ω, data-grade PVC or plenum TPE dielectric.

Based on American Power Conversion's S15 power conditioner, the new S20 model with battery backup features network manageability, temperature/humidity monitoring, and a 28 percent larger power train than the S15. The S20's built-in web server and RS-232 serial port provide system administrators multiple ways to control and monitor the unit and the components plugged into it. Administrators are also able to turn on/off all four outlet banks (a total of 12 outlets) independently of each other and remotely via the serial port.

Making its debut at CEDIA Expo 2006, OmniMount's EAR-S and EAR-C mounting solutions allow flatpanel speakers to be attached to cantilevers so that the speakers stay uniform with the mounted screens. With the EAR-S, the left and right speakers can be attached directly to a universal adapter plate. The EAR-C is for the installation of center-channel speakers, to provide a full L, C, R array for the flatpanel, and it can be used by itself to mount 5-channel speaker bars for an integrated surround system.
