Sony Releases New High-Speed HDMI Cables that Swivel
By Calvin Azuri, TMCnet Contributor
Sony recently introduced its news range of swivel high-speed HDMI cables, which allows easier installation of video and audio components against walls. The cables are created for tight spaces and wall mounting applications where a hard bend is necessary.
Sony, a leading HD company, continues to innovate in areas like HDMI cables to provide holistic solutions for customers' AV performance and system setup needs. The new swivel HDMI cables features rotating connectors which enable the cable plug to swing up to 90 degrees to create a right angle between the connector and the cable, thus reducing the space needed for mounting by around half.
The cables can lock at both 45-degree and 90-degree angles which allows for flexible application use. All of this is now possible, without compromising on the high bandwidth of the cables (10.2 Gbps) or the capability to support full HD 1080p resolution.
Andy Bubala who is the marketing director for audio accessory products at Sony Electronics said that HDMI cables are a critical link for the ultimate high definition viewing experience.
From this month onwards, Sony's swivel high-speed HDMI cables are being made available in both a vertical and a horizontal series, each being offered in two lengths. They can purchase the DLC-HD10H and DLC-HD10V (3ft 3in) cables for approximately $50, whereas the DLC-HD20H and DLC-HD20V (6ft 6in) cables are priced approximately $60.
Since Sony is one of the only manufacturers of high-speed swivel cables, the company recognized that wall mounted TVs are becoming the norm and entertainment centers are becoming more cramped for space.
This is why some of the most important features of these new swivel cables are its space-saving angled grips and also its high-speed bandwidth supporting 120Hz refresh rate, deep color, extended color gamut and lossless audio which is ideal for a true digital cinema experience. In addition to the swivel connectors, these new HDMI cables come with seamless gold plated plugs, triple shielding and oxygen-free copper wire.
You can purchase these new swivel high-speed HDMI cables online www.sonystyle.com and also from authorized dealers nationwide.
From 2004, Sony has been manufacturing HDMI cables and is also a founding member of the HDMI consortium, which reviews technical specifications for HDMI-enabled products.
