CES: PPC Unveils ‘Locking’ HDMI Cable

PPC will be demonstrating its new Locking HDMI Cable in at the 2009 International CES in Las Vegas this week, a breakthrough which it says represents the industry’s first uncompressed, all-digital audio/video interface for connecting any audio/video source (STB, DVD player, A/V receiver, DTV set) over a single cable.

The “locking HDMI” feature includes a patented technology designed to secure a port with cable at strengths three times greater than conventional connectors. PPC said since its proprietary cable (with Category 2 status) minimizes loosening and fall-out, and thereby helps ensure consistent peak-quality HD video/audio. Its cable locks in 1080p without adaptors or additional hardware such as set-up tools, it said.

PPC, based in East Syracuse, N.Y., is located this week (Jan. 8-11) at CES Booth 72625 at the Sands Expo & Convention Center.
