Orlando, FL–March 30, 2006–TRIBUTARIES Cable, manufacturer of widely admired high-value/high-end audio and video cabling and accessories, has debuted an innovative new enhancement for the rapidly spreading HDMI digital-audio-video interconnect standard. The new DSR-701 Digital Signal Restorer from Spectrum Electronics, ensures full performance from HDMI connections over cable-runs as long as 45 meters/148 feet. HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is rapidly becoming the universal standard for interconnecting digital televisions, including HDTV monitors and sets, with digital-video sources such as digital-cable set-top boxes, DVD players, and DTV tuners, and will be the connection of choice for forthcoming high-definition DVD standards.
Though little bigger than a bar of soap, the DSR-701 automatically analyzes the incoming HDMI signal and applies custom-tailored equalization to ensure optimum performance through the connected length and quality of cable. This correction ensures complete data restoration on the incoming signal to HDMI specifications, minimizing data loss by the receiving component, with full quality for all DTV resolutions up to and including 1080p, or computer-monitor formats up to UXGA.
Unlike conventional HDMI ” repeaters,” the DSR-701 is engineered to lock on to even a weak HDMI data-stream and restore it to full-bandwidth integrity: the DSR-701’s Data-Lock Sensor LED illuminates red when the unit first detects a signal, and changes to green to indicate full lock and restoration. The DSR-701’s circuitry is direct coupled from input to output and is designed with fully balanced-line signaling and self-diagnostic monitoring. Complying with HDMI Standard 1.1, the DSR-701 delivers fully automatic signal-equalization of up to 40 dB at 1.65 GHz, and extends interface length to 30 meters (98 ft) with 28AWG STP (shielded twisted pair) HDMI cable, 40m (131 ft) with 26AWG STP, and 45m (148 ft) with 24AWG STP cable.
The DSR-701 Digital Signal Restorer for HDMI connections is constructed on an all-metal chassis using the latest ultra-high-frequency surface-mount technologies, and is supplied with an outboard, 3.3-volt DC power supply.
Available immediately, with a manufacturer’s suggested price of $349.
