New DVI and HDMI Super High Resolution Copper Cables Break Distance Limitations for 1080p Capable DVI and HDMI Cables
Indianapolis, IN — September 9, 2005 — DVIGear, a leading provider of digital connectivity solutions, demonstrated a significant breakthrough in long length DVI and HDMI cables today at the CEDIA Expo. An industry first, DVIGear’s new Super High Resolution (SHR) cables deliver full compatibility with all DVI and HDMI performance specifications with cable lengths that exceed 60 meters (200 ft.). These cables represent a major step forward for home theater designers, installers and enthusiasts who need long length DVI and HDMI cable solutions, but have been plagued by the low performance of conventional cables.
“We have spoken with many end users who have purchased inferior grade DVI and HDMI cables that simply did not deliver the performance they claimed to offer,” said Steven Barlow, president of DVIGear. “Our new SHR DVI and HDMI cables have been engineered for superior performance at resolutions beyond 1080p — and at the longest lengths possible,” Barlow continued.
Super High Resolution DVI and HDMI Cables
All cables suffer from a degenerative effect known as “insertion loss” that becomes more severe as cable length and signal frequencies are increased. To extend the range of its SHR cables, DVIGear developed a new active cable equalization circuit, which mitigates a substantial amount of these insertion losses. When this circuit is used in conjunction with DVIGear’s high performance SHR cables, cable lengths can be extended beyond 60 meters (200 ft.). This remarkable distance is only possible due to the SHR cables’ exceptionally low skew — an essential performance feature that is up to 10 times better than conventional DVI and HDMI cables.
At the CEDIA Expo, DVIGear demonstrated what it believes to be the longest DVI and HDMI 1080p compatible cables on the market today. Two independent 1080p display systems were shown. One system used a single 50 meter (164 ft.) DVI cable, while the second used a single 62 meter (203 ft.) HDMI cable. Each system used a Dell PC running Microsoft Windows Media Video-HD to provide 1080p content with a resolution of 1920×1080/60 Hz. Each long cable was connected to the PC on one end and then into DVIGear’s active cable equalization circuit at the other end. A short 20″ cable connected this circuit to a 45″ Sharp PN-455 LCD monitor, which is 1080p capable and has a native resolution of 1920×1080. In both cases, the 1080p images displayed on the monitors were breathtaking — even though the cable length was over 200 ft. !
Currently, DVIGear offers its SHR DVI and HDMI cables in pre-terminated lengths up to 20 meters (65.6 ft.). Starting in November, DVIGear will begin offering its SHR DVI and HDMI cables in pre-terminated lengths up to 65 meters (213 ft.). All long length cables will include DVIGear’s new active cable equalization circuit at no additional charge. Additional product information and pricing will be made available in the near future.
