Corning Incorporated (NYSE:GLW) today announced its Thunderbolt™ Optical Cables was a ”Best of Show” award winner at the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) 2014 Winter Show. Selected by the ProSoundNetwork editorial staff as a new and noteworthy product with particular merit, the Optical Cables by Corning are the first all-optical fiber cables designed specifically for Thunderbolt technology.
Thunderbolt Cables by Corning allow users to effortlessly manage the demands of today’s high-bandwidth applications over cable lengths spanning 10, 30 and an unprecedented 60 meters – the longest Thunderbolt cable in the industry.
The electrically isolated, noise-reducing cables are up to 50 percent thinner and 80 percent lighter than copper Thunderbolt cables, with substantially more strength and flexibility.
“We are thrilled to be recognized as a ‘Best of Show’ product at one of the world’s leading trade events for the music-products industry,” said Mike Bell, senior vice president, Optical Connectivity Solutions, Corning. “This radically different cabling technology is ideal for users in the pro audio, entertainment and recording industries – or anyone – who wants the creative freedom to create, move and manage their data and content on their terms.”
The 2014 Winter NAMM Show was held in Anaheim, Calif., Jan. 23-26. There were 20 “Best of Show” winners from this year’s winter show.
Thunderbolt is a trademark of Intel Corporation in the U.S. and/or other countries.
