"For years, security professionals have turned to Xantech for reliability. The Xantech commitment to high-performance solutions is at the heart of everything we do, and the New HDMI line is no exception," says Neal Ellsworth, product manager of new initiatives, Nortek Security & Control. 

"As video distribution becomes a bigger part of surveillance installations and as more security dealers are doing A/V projects, it makes sense for us to showcase the launch at ISC West. This broad line of HDMI distribution products matches exceptional performance with affordable pricing, giving dealers solutions for every installation need."
