CORK, Ireland - RedMere® today announced the launch of the new ultra-compact mini booster modules for High Speed HDMI® and Mini DisplayPort cables. The mini-module design is 55% smaller than current active cable booster modules and will accommodate a thinner, lighter cable connector architecture that will be simple to plug in and will match the ultra-sleek look of modern consumer electronic gadgets such as the Motorola Xoom(TM), Nokia 808 PureView or the iPhone® or iPad®.
RedMere's active cable technology allows cable manufacturers to use 80% less copper and PVC in producing lighter, portable and flexible cables. The new mini-modules can be incorporated into a new line of thin HDMI and Mini DisplayPort cables that can guarantee full 1080p output but with a slimmer, narrower connector design. Like the reduction in copper and PVC brought portability to active cables, reducing the connector size will make installations into HDMI and Mini DisplayPort receptors in the gadgets and the back of the HDTVs even simpler. Because active cables are continually striving to use less materials and natural resources than standard bulky passive cables they are also a far more eco-friendly type of cable.
RedMere's Chief Marketing Officer, Darren Hobbs said "RedMere's new eco-friendly ultra-compact mini modules allows brands to offer active cables, which are far tinier than standard bulky HDMI cables, with complementing compact connectors which reflect the needs of today's media consumer who want to watch video on the go. It leads to extremely portable high-speed cables, enabling HD video sharing anywhere. RedMere can now offer this high performance embedded technology for HDMI and DisplayPort standards".
RedMere's mini booster module is embedded into the sink (TV) side connector of the HDMI cable. The programmable active silicon embedded equalizer overcomes any performance limitations over wire gauge, length and frequency - allowing the self-powered module to act as the power-house of the cable, replacing the need for all the copper to transmit the signal reliably. All RedMere enabled cables are individually tested at production, and compliance is fully guaranteed with High Speed HDMI® and DisplayPort 1.1 and 1.2 standards, future proofing these super-compact cables against 3D or 4K2K compatibility.
RedMere provides complete active-cable solutions to cable industry leaders and manufacturing partners. In a world where connection speed increases, RedMere enables easy to use, high quality, smart connectivity for The Home, On the Move and The Office. These new active cable systems deliver the ultimate in compact digital connectivity over HDMI, DisplayPort and USB for Video and Still Cameras, Smartphones, HDTV, Blu-Ray DVD, PS3 and Xbox, as well as enterprise solutions using Infiniband and PCI Express.
