I have no idea how this happened and how it happened to sync up with the holidays and the end of another whirlwind year, but you are reading my 50th newsletter! So much has changed since I started doing this. I just hope that over the years you have found these useful to your business, your ongoing education, or even your sanity. I have enjoyed writing them. Even in a shrinking world I get precious few opportunities to interact with you in person, so I appreciate you opening, reading, clicking, and maybe even contacting me about something you saw in here.
I'm keeping it brief since I know we are all incredibly busy. Remember back when we got a couple weeks of downtime in December? Seems like a long time ago, doesn't it?
Whatever holiday you celebrate, however you choose to celebrate it, whoever you choose to celebrate it with, and for those who don't plan to celebrate at all and instead take advantage of some much needed rest and relaxation, the BTX family wishes yours a safe and happy season and a terrific new year!

AOC is A-OK.
Can you guys tell when I am phoning it in? That was definitely my lamest heading ever. Anyway, you probably already know that BTX has a full line of active optical cables that can reach out to 320ft max. We offer DisplayPort, HDMI with permanent ends, HDMI with removable ends, we even offer this armored fiber juggernaut with lanyard caps:
But, did you know that these cables are HDMI 2.1 and capable of delivering 8K video at 60hz? Did you know we offered armored DisplayPort 1.4 cables now? These aren't just a workaround anymore . . . they can totally replace extension products and crazy chains of SDI and Decimators on show sites. Try one! Let's check out all the AOC options at BTX!
