FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Experience high-definition, digital video and multi-channel, digital audio in one cable
(Indianapolis, IN) — September 10, 2004 — Belkin’s new HDMI cables enable delivery of both high-definition video and multi-channel, digital audio through just one cable. Ideal for connecting digital displays such as DTVs, plasma displays, and LCD TVs, HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) provides an all-digital connection between such source devices as DVD players/recorders, digital set-top boxes, and AV receivers. The cables will begin shipping on October 25, 2004 in North America.
HDMI, the future of HDTV, is a new digital interface that was specifically created for use on consumer AV products. It will automatically find and set component compatibility and play music and movies in your system’s optimum available formats. HDMI is backward compatible with DVI, with the only loss being the multi-channel, digital audio.
