Hosa Technology has announced new High Speed Micro HDMI cables, certified to carry an HD signal up to 1080p and beyond.
The new High Speed Micro HDMI Cables are designed to interconnect devices with Micro HDMI outputs to devices with HDMI inputs, thus suitable for playing back recorded footage from portable digital devices such as GoPro video cameras as well as many other video cameras and electronic tablets.
The new cables handle 720p/1080i signals that are capable of increased refresh rates (above 60 Hz) or Deep Color. Backward compatible with all standard HDMI interfaces, they support the maximum single-link bandwidth of 340 MHz (10.2 Gbps) as well as uncompressed 7.1 digital audio up to 192 kHz. Gold-plated plugs provide corrosion resistance and enhance signal transfer.
Jose Gonzalez, Hosa Technology product manager, sates “HDMI has given consumers the ability to eliminate a significant amount of cable clutter in entertainment systems. HDMI is, without question, the best audio and video signal transmission method to get high definition video and surround sound from one’s source device, such as a Blu-ray disc player, to the screen and loudspeakers.
“Advances in technology since the release of HDMI have made it possible to record high definition video utilizing small camcorders or stream HD video right to electronic tablets. The key to these devices is portability and the amount of available connector real estate is extremely limited.
“As a result, the Micro HDMI connector is the ideal size for most of these devices and it still provides the full set of HDMI features. By offering HDMI to Micro HDMI connectivity, our new cables are the perfect match for many of today’s consumer electronics products.”
