CORK, Ireland-29 June 2012 – RedMere® a leading supplier of smart active cable solutions has announced that Monster®, the world leader in advanced audio/visual accessories, has launched a new line of superior HDMI cables certified by Imaging Science Foundation (ISF®) using the latest RedMere Smart Cable technology. This new ISF portfolio includes cables capable of speeds up to 21Gbps and incorporates LED speed indicators to display the rate of data be it SD,HD or 4K – all made possible by the RedMere technology inside the connector of the cable.
RedMere’s chip technology ensures that the cables handle the highest HDMI data rates possible and at least supports video features like Ethernet, 3D, and 4K. This proprietary technology enables the new on-board HDMI performance indicators displaying the video format so the end user can see immediately if the signal conveyed has standard, full HD or 4K resolution.
RedMere is the world recognized leader in “active” cable technology. Its technology works using a “booster module” which includes a tiny chip, and resides in the cable connector, based on numerous patented RedMere technologies. The booster module makes up one end of the HDMI cable (the TV/display end) and, harnessing a tiny amount of leftover power from the TV’s connector, amplifies and equalizes the signal.
“We are pleased that our long association with Monster has blossomed into this new, exclusive line of RedMere-powered Monster products endorsed by the Imaging Science Foundation,” said Ruud Van der Linden, RedMere CEO. “Among consumers and A/V professionals, Monster and ISF are two of the most influential brands in building awareness for new, best-in-class technology. This new application of RedMere technology, providing a visual indicator of the video format up to and including 4K resolution, will help consumers and pros set up equipment faster and verify proper performance."
“Also, RedMere technology’s data transfer rate, up to 21Gbps, is well beyond any current or potential future standard for HDMI. This means that RedMere-powered Monster-ISF cables will work with HDMI-equipped gear purchased last decade, this decade, or next decade. No more cable confusion, no more cable obsolescence.”
