Ideal for New HDMI Video Resolution Installations up to 4K

 Sommer Cable America is introducing at NAB the new DVM-HDT-KIT-- HDMI (r) Engineers Toolkit with 4K and HDMI 2.0 support, an easy-to-use measurement tool for HDMI installations, rental companies, trouble-shooting, and product development.

Sommer Cable, the German specialist for professional, high-quality cables and connector technologies, is introducing a variety of new products in its Cardinal DVM electronics line. The increasing demand for larger bandwidths and higher resolutions of AV products was the main driver behind the development of these products. All new devices are fully 4K compatible.

Peter Rieck, Product and Key Account Manager at Sommer Cable Germany states: "We look forward to presenting the entire Sommer cable and Cardinal product line, including the DVM-HDT-KIT, in our new display cases for cables and hardware at NAB 2016. Together with our Sommer Cable America colleagues Martin Ucik and Jed Larson, I will be available to meet with customers to present the new devices at the Sommer cable booth #C8849. Specifically the 'HDMI 2.0 Engineers Toolkit' will be a real boon for discerning technicians."

Martin Ucik, CEO of Sommer cable America adds, "We look forward to bringing new innovations and the deep knowledge of our German product specialists to our valued American customers at this exciting show."
