HDMI Locking Cables a Welcome Relief
Based on feedback from customers worldwide, Gefen now offers a selection of locking HDMI cables for high-definition AV installations.
For everyone who ever expressed frustration with lost HD signals due to loose HDMI connections, Gefen has heard you loud and clear. Based on feedback from customers worldwide, the company now offers a selection of locking HDMI cables for high-definition AV installations. The locks resemble those found on computer cables and screw into the component to hold the cable in place. As of right now, the cables work best with components designed to accept the lock feature, but they’ll still work without it. While there may not be a plethora of products that feature this ideal design, manufacturers should take note of this practical technology, which is sure to catch on. The cables are available in 3-, 6-, 10-, and 15-foot lengths and support resolutions up to 1080p with complete HDCP compliance. Prices range from $45 to $69. www.gefen.com.
