The company says that it now offers improved HDMI 1.x, USB 2.0, FireWire 400 and 9- and 15-pin D-sub mounts. They are available in nickel or black finish. They will mount in Neutrik D cutouts.
The HDMI and USB units provide IP65 water and dust ingress when used with similarly-rated Neutrik cable assembly connectors. The shells are also designed to provide a lock rather than the connector tongues and sleeve themselves.
Neutrik has matching cable assemblies.
