Phoenix Gold is proud to announce that it will feature its new HDMX.900 CL3-rated HDMI cables at the 2007 CES Show, held Jan. 8-11 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, booth #1031 (North Hall). The HDMX line features 1080i and 1080p specifications and is available in multiple lengths for added flexibility.
"The high-definition accessories category needed to be addressed in connection to the CI and consumer markets," explains Tim Leahy, Phoenix Gold director of marketing. "Longer HD cable runs snaked through walls has been a problem faced by many installers, and Phoenix Gold has come up with the answer with our updated line of 1080i and 1080p HDMi cables."
Phoenix Gold now offers HDMi cable worthy of 1080p standards by meeting and surpassing these requirements with an affordable solution. The 900 series' 3m (9.9ft.) and 5m (16.5ft.) options are approved for 1080p standards, with a 7.5m (24.75ft.) 1080p option planned for early in 2007, as well as designs to offer a repeater (suggested retail of $89.00) that will pass 1080p standards up to 25m (82.2ft.). The repeater can be added to the 9m (29.7ft.) and 15m (49.5ft.) HDMI cables to guarantee 1080p broadcast. Plans are also in the works to add a 20m (65.62ft.) and 25m cable packaged with the repeater, which will also be 1080p approved.
"All Phoenix Gold 900 and 500 series HDMI cables feature CL-3 rated jackets approved for in-wall installation for both commercial and residential applications," Leahy says. "The 900 series features 24-gauge silver-treated conductors with copper-shielded connectors and dual Ferrite cores. A repeater, which we plan to offer in early 2007, will add extended transfer lengths of 1080i and 1080p signals."
Phoenix Gold will also announce and showcase during CES a new HDMI interconnect featuring HDMI 1.3 C type mini connector to a standard A type HDMI connector. The new cable will be available early 2007 in time for the release of the new high-definition camcorders. The cables, which are offered in 1m (3.3ft.), 2m (6.6ft.), and 3m (9.9ft.) lengths, will also work on the Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) gaming system.
Pricing for the Phoenix Gold HDMX.900 CL3-rated HDMI cables are TBD. Due to continual product improvement, all specifications subject to change without notice. For more information on Phoenix Gold, AudioSource, and Carver, please call 1 (800) 950-1449 or visit phoenixgold.com.
