Liberty AV Solutions and Celerity Technologies have entered an agreement to add Celerity’s line of fiber-optic HDMI cables to Liberty’s product catalog. Effective immediately and stemming from growth initiatives mutually undertaken by both companies, the deal is strategically designed to expand the presence of Celerity products within the commercial and custom AV installation markets.

Liberty views Celerity's product as an innovative alternative for systems integrators facing a need to send HDMI signals over long distances. The two-step installation process and detachable connector system that Celerity’s products are known for position the HDMI cabling line to emerge as a logical choice for the range of applications requiring high-definition content distribution, says Liberty.
