One-Piece Cable for Mirroring iPad® 2 and iPhone® 4 Display on HDTV Available for Consumers This Summer Announces RedMere, Pioneer of Active Cable Technology

DUBLIN, IRELAND--(Marketwire - May 16, 2011) - RedMere®, the pioneer of smart active cable technology for HDMI, announced that its single-cable solution for mirroring the iPad® 2 and iPhone® 4 display to an HDTV will be available to U.S. consumers this summer and will be sold by the company's brand-name marketing partners. RedMere said the new cable will be an integrated unit eliminating the need for a "dongle" and separate HDMI cable. The sleek all-in-one RedMere cable will incorporate the company's self-powered integrated circuit which lets users directly connect their iPad 2, iPhone 4, and fourth-generation iPod® Touch to an HDTV or other high definition display or projector.

"This will be the coolest, most convenient way to show iPad 2 content on HDTVs for friends, family, co-workers, or customers," said Peter Smyth, RedMere CEO and founder. "RedMere's smart active cable technology lets you do away with the dongle and gives you a portable connection that's far thinner, lighter and more flexible than conventional HDMI cables. We're talking about a cable up to 15 feet long which still slips into your pocket or purse -- perfect for business presentations, movies, or games."

RedMere's brand partners include VIZIO®, Inc., Samsung®, PNY Technologies®, Inc., Monster®, and RadioShack®; the company would not reveal whether these brands or others would market the iPad 2 mirroring cable technology. Smyth said the product's retail pricing would be determined by RedMere's partners.

"The iPad 2 is a great portable device for streaming movies and sharing business content. Having a RedMere-powered mirroring cable means always having a simple solution for letting a roomful of people join in."
