Orlando, FL (June 11, 2019)—Radial Engineering has released the Catapult Mini TRS modular Cat 5 audio snake.
The Catapult Mini TRS can drive four analog audio channels over a single shielded Cat 5 cable, connecting to devices with balanced 1/4″ connections. The Mini TRS complements the existing Catapult Mini RX and TX modules, which feature male and female XLR connectors respectively. A compact steel chassis includes a hardwired fan-out to four balanced 1/4″ TRS connectors.
The Catapult system connects via Cat 5 Ethernet cable; since many buildings are already pre-wired for Cat 5, Catapult modules can take advantage of this to transmit audio between distant rooms without the need to install or supply new cabling. This eliminates the need for multi-channel audio cables and allows contractors to utilize installed network cables to connect from one room to another.
All of the Radial Catapult modules are compatible with each other, and each is sold individually. Two Catapult Mini TRS modules can be used together as a pair to create a compact four-channel 1/4″ TRS audio snake, or they can be connected to other Catapult modules that include XLR inputs and outputs, splitting capabilities, or transformer isolation.
