Comprehensive began in 1974 as a simple idea. With audio-visual, video production, broadcast and computer hardware becoming more and more prevalent in business and industry, there was an inherent and un-met need for reliable, professional grade connectivity solutions and accessories required to interface them and make them work. These solutions had to be extremely reliable, affordable and most of all, available when these new businesses called "AV Dealers" or "Computer Resellers" required them. Over the years, Comprehensive cables and signal management solutions became necessities in every professional broadcast, video or computer environment because they could be counted on to work every time all the time. Comprehensive became the leading brand of professional connectivity solutions and the Comprehensive catalog could be found on every audio, video or computer professionals desk for almost four decades.
