DAYTON, Ohio — Aug. 4, 2022 — C2G is helping to educate AV and technology professionals on the ins and outs of USB4 and Type-C interfaces in its latest white paper, “A Comprehensive Guide to USB4 & Type-C for AV Pros.” The white paper, written by Legrand’s AV Technology Evangelist Joseph D. Cornwall, CTS-D/I, provides foundational knowledge of these new standards so AV and technology professionals can make the best connectivity design decisions.
“The benefits of this new standard can’t be overlooked; however, there are some critical takeaways to know when it comes to supporting today’s devices,” said Robert Mays, Associate Product Marketing Manager, C2G, A Brand of Legrand. “This white paper provides any professional with a good understanding of USB Type-C so they can carefully select the docking station to correctly support the application.”
This white paper will answer several key questions including:
- What are USB, USB4, Thunderbolt 4, and USB Type-C?
- How does USB Type-C handle power?
- How is Extended Power Range different from the existing Standard Power Range in USB4, and what does it mean for system design?
- What is a USB docking station?
- How is Power Delivery handled in docking stations?
- What is USB Type-C Alternate Mode?
What are EMCA cables, and are they passive or active?

When you need reliable connections, be sure to turn to C2G and our high-performance cabling and connectivity solutions. We’ve grown into respectable players in the IT and AV industries, though we still retain our scrappy vibe from the early days. And we’re not above having the occasional mascot. (We miss you, Cable Guy and Captain Connector!)
That’s what you get with C2G — an incredible focus on delivering unique, value-added solutions along with a singular commitment to creating lasting, dependable partnerships. It’s not unheard of for executives to be seen repackaging products in shipping or for a sales rep to hand-deliver a rush order when unusual circumstances arise. We’ve been that way since our founders ditched their 1984 Salem Mall PC resell store in Ohio to focus on expanding the custom cables they made in the back that were selling like hotcakes.
We use premium components and the latest technologies to keep pace with the fast-moving changes in AV technology. Quality is so important to us; we have our own manufacturing plant to ensure our products meet our demanding expectations. We put our cable performance second to none and make sure we comply with industry specifications across RoHS, R.E.A.C.H., and WEEE. Check out our 7,000+ stocked solutions or ask about custom kits. Seriously, let’s get connected.
