Hosa Technology Participates in PastaThon 2016

Hosa Technology Participates in PastaThon 2016

Event fights child hunger in Orange and L.A. counties

Buena Park, CA, December 2016 — Hosa Technology, Inc., the leading innovator of analog and digital connectivity solutions for the audio and video professional, recently participated in the 2016 KFI PastaThon. The event benefits Caterina’s Club, an organization that feeds children of low-income families in Orange and Los Angeles counties.

The company held a drive to raise donations for the PastaThon. In Hosa’s tradition of making work fun, the initiative was turned into a friendly competition dubbed Penne War. All Hosa staff was divided into three teams—Pasta La Vista, Flying Spaghetti Monsters, and Full Frontal Noodlety—and each item donated by team members carried a predetermined amount of points. In addition to fostering a competitive spirit, the point system was also used to determine Hosa’s monetary contribution. The company agreed to donate $2 for every point accrued at the end of the Penne War. All donations were to be presented at the 6th annual KFI PastaThon on December 1st.

The competition was a complete success. In the span of three weeks, Hosa compiled 194 pounds of pasta, 374 pounds of tomato sauce, 3,084 utensils, 3,425 bowls, 11,820 napkins, 1,100 cups, and 975 plates. At KFI’s PastaThon, Mayumi Martinez, CEO of Hosa Technology, presented all employee contributions along with a $4,800 check to Caterina’s Club. Martinez and three more Hosa representatives remained at the PastaThon to assist in collecting and tallying donations that were dropped off throughout the day.

Commenting on the event, Martinez said the following, “We are extremely excited the entire Hosa family pulled together in support of such a great cause. Chef Bruno Serato and Caterina’s Club work hard to keep children in our community from going to bed hungry and we are delighted to assist with their mission.”

Dating back to 2005 when Chef Bruno made pasta for one child at a local Boys & Girls Club, Caterina’s Club now feeds over 1,800 children every night throughout Los Angeles and Orange counties. In addition, the organization works to move families living in motels into more stable housing. For the past six years, local radio station KFI has sponsored the one-day PastaThon with the goal of raising enough food, supplies, and money to last through the year. At press time, the event had already surpassed previous years’ numbers with over $300,000 and more than 70,000 pounds of pasta and tomato sauce.

Hosa Technology Announces Power Distribution Cords

Eliminates excessive power cables on stage

Buena Park, CA, March 2016 — Hosa Technology, Inc., the leading innovator of analog and digital connectivity solutions for the audio/video professional, is pleased to introduce the PDX Series Power Distribution Cord line. Designed to simplify power cable runs, each distribution cord consists of evenly spaced NEMA 5-15R outlets to facilitate power to various devices. Hosa’s power distribution cords enable one to run multiple components on stage without resorting to extension cables and electrical strips. The line consists of three options with varying number of outlets, lengths, and gauges to eliminate cable clutter in any space.

Featuring 12 AWG Oxygen-Free Copper (OFC) conductors for increased current flow, PDX-200 Series Power Distribution Cords can power multiple electronic devices with ease. The PDX-225 features a total of four outlets along a 25-foot cable while the PDX-250 runs 50 feet and enables connection of up to seven devices. Each inline outlet is illuminated so one can easily locate connection points in dark areas.

For situations that require less power, the PDX-430 Power Distribution Cord utilizes 14 AWG OFC conductors and provides seven connection points in a 30-foot cable. Displaying the same illuminated inline outlets as the 200 series, this cord can be used on any stage to minimize multiple cable runs. The PDX-430 distribution cord is ideal for stages using LED lighting.

“The power demand on today’s stages is higher than ever before and Hosa knows running multiple power cables throughout a stage is not the best solution,” commented Jose Gonzalez, Hosa Technology’s Product Manager. “The new Hosa Power Distribution Cords eliminate tripping hazards by enabling you to run one cable to the various electronic devices on stage. We’re confident this line will become a vital connectivity solution for live venues everywhere.”

The Hosa Power Distribution Cord line is available now. MSRP ranges from $95.10 to $173.70.
