Accell's UltraRun Line of Long Length HDMI Cables Earn the Prestigious ATC Certification

FREMONT, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 29, 2006 -- Accell, a provider of premium audio/video interconnects, has earned the HDMI™ ATC (Authorized Test Center) certification for its UltraRun™ line of commercial and residential installer HDMI cables.

Only eight HDMI Authorized Test Centers exist in the world and only one in North America. A product must pass stringent testing by the ATC before claiming HDMI certification. Accell worked with Silicon Image, which represents the test center for North America, located in Sunnyvale, California.

Geared for residential and commercial installers, the UltraRun line is the world's first affordable and truly long run HDMI cables that deliver a high-definition digital signal without noise or degradation. It is also the industry's first copper conductor HDMI long run cables available in lengths of up to 147 feet (45 meters).

Length limitations have been a critical challenge in the HDMI cable industry due to degradation and loss of signal integrity when using cables longer than 15 feet. Accell's new UltraRun HDMI cables feature an exclusive, miniature signal equalizer and booster, providing high-definition digital transmission without signal loss. The cables require no external power, support resolutions of up to 1080p and are HDCP compatible.

"Receiving HDMI ATC certification is a testament to our engineers and the company vision for creating A/V connectivity solutions that combine high performance and unparalleled value," said Tenny Sin, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Accell. "Accell has earned resounding customer praise and support, and it has inspired us to constantly research and innovate industry-leading connectivity solutions for A/V enthusiasts."

HDMI compliance testing is performed to the specifications called out in the HDMI Compliance Test Specification (CTS) 1.2a. Requiring compliance testing promotes greater interoperability between HDMI devices from different manufacturers.

UltraRun™ cables are UL Listed and CL-3 compliant and suitable for in-wall installation. Installers now have the capability of positioning displays or projectors up to 147 feet (45 meters) away from the video source without the need for expensive fiber optic cables or combining cables using bulky repeaters.
