AV technologies have progressed at an incredible rate over recent years, and the team of integrators at Kordz is keeping pace by continually evolving and optimizing professional-grade connectivity products for systems technicians. This mission to “Kordzify” a vast and growing line of cabling, connectors, and installation tools is reflected in three new products being announced at ISE 2024, stand #2F500.
Patch Cords Kordzified with New PRO SlimCat Patch Cord BeltPak
One of the most tedious exercises systems technicians encounter in network cabling projects is the removal and installation of dozens, if not hundreds, of individual patch cords from bulky single-use packaging. Further impacting job profitability is the time and cost to freight, store, carry, and dispose of traditional patch cord packaging.
Kordz has solved these common frustrations and reduced the average unit cost of its best-selling patch cord with the introduction of the PRO SlimCat Patch Cord BeltPak. Debuting at ISE 2024, this patent-pending ‘Kordzified’ packaging solution comprises a compact, eco-friendly 10-pack “belt” of perforated, tear-off packs made from 100 percent recyclable paper. The format makes it quick and easy for systems technicians to count and carry the exact amount needed and sling them over the shoulder leaving hands free for other tasks, while the paper packaging is easily torn open and cleaned up for quick, environmentally friendly disposal.
Networking Kordzified with New PRO 24AWG RJ45 Crimp Connector
By popular request, Kordz has adapted its SlimCat 28AWG RJ45 Crimp Connector for 24AWG cable with the new PRO 24AWG RJ45 Crimp Connector. Optimized for professional systems technicians and engineered to last, this non-push-through crimp connector includes Kordz’ snap-proof nylon latch that can withstand 2000 bend cycles, along with the optional strain relief and locking pin that ensure once it’s plugged in, it stays in.
Balanced Audio Kordzified with New ONE Balanced Audio Cable and XLR Connectors
Meticulously designed and engineered, the new ONE Balanced Audio Cable and XLR Connectors offer systems technicians a more robust, fast, and effective connectivity solution for professional audio installations. Featuring high-purity stranded OFC conductors and aluminum foil shielding, the ONE Balanced Audio Cable is flexible and easier to install, even over long distances without compromising longevity, reliability, or durability. It pairs with the new ONE XLR Connectors that are easy to terminate and engineered to last with a robust zinc-alloy shell and gold-plated solid pins.
The Kordz Termination Challenge Returns
A favorite exhibit among trade show attendees, the Kordz Termination Challenge is back for another round of friendly competition at ISE 2024. At the Kordz Stand #2F500, attendees can test their skills and try to best both their peers and the impressive current challenge record of 35:05 seconds, set by an Australian integrator at the Integrate 2023 tradeshow in Sydney. After Kordz launched the Termination Challenge at ISE 2023, it has met with resounding popularity around the globe. Kordz brings the same “against-the-clock”’ format back to ISE this year, along with an opportunity to win prizes and bragging rights as the Termination Challenge champion.
Kordz Connects WaveForming Demonstration by Trinnov Audio
Attendees can experience the power, performance and reliability of Kordz cabling solutions at the Trinnov, Krix, and Officina Acustica stand 2C500, where Kordz HDMI Cables and ONE Series Speaker Cable play an integral part connecting Trinnov’s demonstration of its WaveForming technology. Trinnov selected Kordz as its sole provider of HDMI and speaker cabling to ensure optimal power and performance of this next-generation audio technology.
Kordz will connect a wide range of reference-level audio products from Trinnov and other premier manufacturers to showcase the audio reproduction of Trinnov’s state-of-the-art AV processors and amplifiers, a total of 33 never-before-seen speakers including 14 subwoofers from Australian manufacturer Krix, as well as best-in-class products from MadVR Labs, Barco, and Reference-Screen Excellence–all inside a custom designed cinema created by acoustic expert, Officina Acustica.
