Accell Announces UltraAV 2-1 HDMI Switch Featuring HDMI 1.3a Category 2 Support

The world’s smallest and first HDMI 1.3a Category 2 compatible 2-1 Switch

Fremont, CA., August 13, 2007 –Accell, a provider of premium audio/video interconnects, today announced its new UltraAV 2-1 HDMI 1.3a Category 2 Switch for the A/V home theater market at the incredibly low price of $99.99. Accell’s latest HDMI switch will be exhibited during CEDIA Expo 2007 September 5-9 in Denver, Colorado.

Accell recognizes that although other companies produce HDMI switches in 2-1 and 4-1 configurations, not all support both the HDMI 1.3a Category 1 and Category 2 specifications. HDMI 1.3a Category 2, also known as HDMI 1.3 High-Speed, is a quantum leap over HDMI 1.3a Category 1 and earlier HDMI specifications.

“A/V devices that support any part of the HDMI 1.3a Category 2 are starting to emerge, and Accell plans on being the frontrunner in its connectivity,” stated Tenny Sin, Accell’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Home users expanding their A/V system with HDMI devices may find their TV lacks enough HDMI inputs, therefore building a system with an HDMI 1.3a Category 2 Switch provides built-in scalability for the inclusion, presently or in the future, of products that support features from this specification.”

Accell’s UltraAV 2-1 Switch supports HDMI 1.3a Category 2 including up to 1440p resolution, 10.2Gbps (340MHz) high-speed data transfer and rich 48-bit deep color. In addition, this small and ultra-compact switch supports Dolby True-HD and DTS-HD audio formats. The switch requires no external power and is complete with a remote control and an infrared extender so it may be placed out-of-sight.
