Wireworld’s Flagship $1,000 Silver Conductor HDMI Cable
Wireworld, which debuted the world’s first upgrade HDMI cables in 2004, has introduced a new flagship HDMI cable that delivers the highest levels of performance the company has ever offered. The Platinum Starlight HDMI cable features molded carbon fiber connectors, the company’s unique new 24-conductor DNA Helix design with solid silver conductors, and high-speed/high-bandwidth capabilities to meet even the most stringent system requirements – including the new HDMI v1.4 High Speed with Ethernet specification. MSRP for the Platinum Starlight is $1,000 for a 1.0 meter cable.
“Now that Blu-Ray players are the primary source for both movies and music in home theater systems,” comments Wireworld President and founder David Salz, “the HDMI cable connecting the player to the system has become the most important audio cable in the entire system. The Platinum Starlight HDMI cable addresses the need to provide the highest possible audio and video fidelity in high end home theater installations.”
The Platinum Starlight HDMI cable employs Wireworld’s new, patent-pending DNA Helix conductor design, which uses 24 solid silver conductors — double that of conventional HDMI designs — arranged with an innovative symmetrical geometry designed to neutralize impedance variations at every point along the cable’s length. These advancements maximize available speed and bandwidth for the signal path while also reducing noise and jitter effects for substantial overall improvements in signal fidelity and dynamic response. The cable is capable of transfer rates of up to 21 Gbits per second, far exceeding the HDMI group’s recently announced v1.4 High Speed with Ethernet specification of 10.2 Gbits per second.
Platinum Starlight HDMI cables will be available in February of 2010 in lengths ranging from 0.3 meter to 30 meters. Retail pricing for a 1.0 meter cable is $1,000.
