Many consumer connector standards (USB, HDMI, etc.) have found their way into professional camera technology and this brings the problems that they don't lock to the device they are attached to with them and that they are rather vulnerable to damage when sideway force is applied to the connector. Shooting in the field and having several cables hanging from the camera and not having a way to secure them in place is really cumbersome and has often lead to broken connectors or problems with devices being disconnected accidentally. Not optimal when you actually currently focus on making a movie...
The idea is to not require a special cable or a special connector but provide a protection system that can be used in addition to existing connectors.
If you love your, cables protect them - with Cable A(r)mour!
Absolutely not! We release this as open hardware for anyone to use and build upon - be fair and do the same when you use this as foundation of your own solution
