Accell's New Locking HDMI Cable Offers Trouble Free Connectivity And Enhanced Performance

Universal design for ease of use and a reliable audio and visual experience

[The following is a release from Accell]

   

Accell announces the debut of their patent pending Locking HDMI cable. This exclusive design was created for anyone purchasing an HDMI cable that wants to ensure a trouble free installation. The Locking HDMI cable will be showcased at International CES, from January 8-11, 2009 in the Las Vegas Convention Center South Hall 1, Booth #20425.
"Accell listened to the needs of the market and in response we developed this new interconnect technology," said Tenny Sin, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Accell. "After an installation, the installer will often receive a call that their customer's system is no longer working, only to find that an HDMI cable had come loose or fallen out of a device. Since the Locking HDMI cable stays connected this will no longer be a problem, thus eliminating service calls, saving time and money."

Due to the lack of a substantial locking mechanism in the original HDMI connector specification, HDMI cables can come loose or fall out. Accell's locking HDMI connector has a hold on the HDMI port many times greater than a conventional HDMI connector. Able to lock into any HDMI device, it ensures that the HDMI cable stays put for a trouble free audio and video experience.

Accell's new connector design embraces the way that a cable is normally used. "We explored many locking and release configurations before deciding on our final design," said Michael Weizer, Director of Marketing for Accell. "When our connector is inserted into the HDMI port, it automatically locks into place. To release, simply pull back on the cable's connector casing to unlock and remove the cable. We dismissed a push button release design since we found that a surrounding cable will often blocks its access. Accell's innovative design provides a process of locking and unlocking that is natural while avoiding access problems."

Reason #87 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:

I read Widescreen Review for at least three good reasons: 1), Reviews of new, interesting components are uniquely personal and effective. A fine example is the recent piece on the Plinius multichannel amp. 2), I am an early adopter who wants to know about things like Blu-ray and HD DVD. Widescreen Review covers HDTV issues like no other publication. I cannot find this information anywhere else. 3), I consider Joe Kane to be the video display guru par excellence. I have had my 65 inch Mitsubishi RPTV calibrated twice by a technician here. He first calibrated it after I bought it and then after a move. He does a great job. He follows Mr. Kane's arguments in WSR, and we usually discuss his latest manifesto. We trust him, and really agree with him about moving from interlaced to progressive displays of film and video. If you are an enthusiast in this field, and certainly if you are a professional, you have to be conversant with the problems and opportunities covered in Widescreen Review. The smartest thing you could do is pick one up regularly.
