Redmere, a supplier of smart active cable solutions, announced that consumer electronics brand PNY has launched the new Active High Speed HDMI Micro Cable in the United States using its cable technology.
According to company sources this product will form a part of PNY’s line of Active Cables with HDMI which leverages RedMere’s technology for making ultra-thin and portable cables. PNY’s Active High Speed HDMI Micro Cable gives convenient access to videos, photos, presentations, Web browsing and e-books from a portable device directly to a projector, monitor, or HDTV. This capability is expected to enhance the way consumers use tablets and smartphones.
In a release Ruud van der Linden RedMere’s Chief Marketing Officer said, “RedMere enabled cables with a micro-connector allow every HDTV to become a Smart TV. A smartphone plus a smart cable equals a Smart TV. Only cables using RedMere’s active technology can offer the CE user the benefit of sharing high definition content while on the move – be that for business or for recreational use.”
The patented active cable technology from Redmere allows 70 percent of the copper and PVC to be eliminated from the manufacturing process of a high definition video cable. The usually thick and cumbersome HD video cable will now become ultra-thin and portable.
Most smartphones and tablets feature multimedia features like emailing and Internet connection besides including 5 megapixel camera or higher, video recording capabilities and HD movie playback in full 1080p and they are able to connect digitally to HDTVs.
Officials added that in such cases the Active High Speed HDMI Micro Cable from PNY, powered by RedMere’s technology becomes the ideal connectivity partner for these. The cable facilitates media sharing as it is compact, lightweight and portable.
It was revealed that RedMere-enabled PNY cables work with compatible tablets, such as the Motorola Xoom, Acer Iconia, and BlackBerry (News - Alert) Playbook; and other compatible smartphones, like HTC EVO 4G, Motorola Droid X(2), Samsung Droid Charge, and LG Revolution.
Recently TMCnet reported that RedMere has developed an ultra-high speed HDMI module, the PRA1701.
