Buena Park, CA – September 2009… Hosa Technology, the leading innovator of analog and digital connectivity solutions for the modern musician and audio/video professional, is pleased to announce the expansion of its HDMI cable line with the addition of the new HDMC-300 Series HDMI to mini HDMI cables. Further, Hosa introduces the new NHD-518 HDMI female to mini HDMI male adaptor. These new product offerings bring a new level of assurance to A/V installers, home hi-fi enthusiasts, and others that no matter what combination of cable/satellite receivers, DVD/Blu-ray Disc players, game consoles, and other equipment they may want to integrate into a unified audio-visual system, Hosa is ready and able to facilitate all the necessary connections.
Hosa’s new HDMI to mini HDMI cable offerings are ideally suited for integrating a variety of digital media devices such as digital cameras, camcorders, small format DVD players, and related equipment into an audio-visual system. As many of these devices incorporate mini HDMI ports, Hosa’s new HDMC-300 Series HDMI to mini HDMI cables bridge the gap between the camera and the display monitor, which usually incorporates the larger HDMI connector. Hosa’s new HDMI to mini HDMI cables are available in 3-, 6-, and 10-foot lengths.
From a technical perspective, Hosa’s new HDMC-300 Series HDMI to mini HDMI cables are the perfect match for use with the most sophisticated A/V equipment. Hosa Technology HDMI cables are certified to carry an HD signal up to full 1080p resolution and beyond. They are also ideal for 720p/1080i signals that are capable of increased refresh rates (above 60 Hz) or Deep Color™. In addition, the Blu-ray specification requires a device to be 340 MHz compliant in order to display full 1080p picture quality. With Hosa’s new HDMI to mini HDMI cables, you are assured full compliance. These cables support a maximum single-link bandwidth of 340 MHz (10.2 Gbps), making them the perfect choice for interconnecting a Blu-ray Disc player with a 1080p video display monitor.
As the HDMI specification includes audio, knowing that one’s HDMI cable is up to the task is equally important—and Hosa’s HDMC-300 Series HDMI to mini HDMI cables make a great choice. These cables provide support for uncompressed 7.1 digital audio up to 192 kHz. This includes backward compatibility with all standard HDMI interfaces, including stereo, 2.1 (left-right speakers plus LFE channel), and 5.1 surround sound.
For those with an existing standard HDMI cable wishing to integrate a new component into an A/V system that utilizes the mini HDMI connector, Hosa’s new NHD-518 HDMI female to mini HDMI male adapter is the solution. The NHD-518 simply connects onto either end of the standard HDMI (male-male) cable to facilitate the desired connection. Featuring gold plated contacts, this adapter preserves pristine sound and picture quality.
Jonathan Pusey, Hosa Technology’s National Marketing Manager, commented on the company’s new HDMI to mini HDMI cables and the HDMI to mini HDMI adapter. “With the surging interest in Blu-ray Disc players, game consoles, digital camera equipment, and VOD (video on demand), today’s audio-visual systems are becoming increasing more complex and interconnecting all the various components can be overwhelming,” says Pusey. “Making the physical connection between these devices, however, should not be a challenge, and with our expanded line of HDMI cable products and our new HDMI to mini HDMI adapter, this is exactly the case. Hosa’s full range of HDMI cable products is comprehensive and fully compliant with the latest specifications—thus ensuring optimum results. I’m confident installation professionals and home users alike will find much to like.”
Hosa Technology’s HDMC-300 Series HDMI to mini HDMI cables range in price from MSRP $28.00 to $45.00, depending upon length and cable terminations. The NHD-518 HDMI female to mini-HDMI male adapter carries a MSRP of $27. All products are available now.
