PNY Technologies Launches Active High Speed HDMI® Cables

PARSIPPANY, NJ--(Marketwire - June 22, 2010) -  PNY Technologies®, Inc. ("PNY"), a global leader in flash memory cards, USB flash drives, solid state drives, computer memory upgrade modules, as well as consumer and professional graphics cards, announced today the introduction of a new line of product: PNY Active HDMI® Cables.

The next generation of HDMI cable technology, PNY Active HDMI Cables enable high-speed 1080p HD picture and sound, all in a new ultra-thin innovative design. PNY's Active HDMI Cables are certified at the latest High-Speed HDMI 1.4a standard, deliver a guaranteed 10.2Gbps (gigabits per second) bandwidth stream for flawless HD performance at the industry's highest current speed level, and are 3D ready. These Active HDMI Cables feature built-in chip technology that controls audio and video signals to enable digital surround sound and an optimal HD experience in 1080p and beyond. With support for Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, including 5.1 and 7.1 audio, these Active HDMI Cables offer a true digital cinema experience. At a fraction of the size of traditional HDMI cables, these measure a slender 3.6mm in diameter and are more pliable for ease of use and compact to reduce the space required for installation. Lightweight and ultra portable, these cables are small enough to fit in the palm of your hand when rolled up. PNY's Active HDMI Cables also allow for advanced display technologies, including being 3D ready and Blu-ray 3Dfunctionality.

PNY's new sleek, flexible, and user-friendly Active HDMI Cables offer a heightened viewing experience to reproduce rich, natural, lifelike colors in videos and photos and are available in 2 different connection models: Standard HDMI to HDMI (also known as Type A to A) and Mini HDMI to HDMI (also known as Type A to C). The A to A cable connects a cable box, Blu-rayDisc player, HD DVD player, laptop/PC, AV receiver, or video game console to a HDTV. The A to C cable is designed to connect small portable devices, such as a digital camera, SLR, and camcorder to a HDTV.

"With the inclusion of Active HDMI Cables, we're offering consumers the opportunity to upgrade and transform their home entertainment experience," said Nicholas Mauro, senior marketing manager, PC components for PNY. "The light and ultra-thin, yet powerful, design delivers consistent high-quality performance right to your HDTV. Available in lengths up to 16 feet, users can utilize their portable devices with ease like a remote control to enjoy viewing pictures and videos from the comfort of their couch. Additionally, with the growing technology of 3D TVs, and available content from sports to movies and even photos, consumers can future-proof their home theaters. Whether you're a movie buff, enthusiast gamer, or picture fanatic... you can indulge in full HD with PNY's Active HDMI Cables."
