RedMere Introduces the Second Generation of Self Powered Cable Booster Modules, Future Proofing Long Cable Applications
CEDIA EXPO 2010
Dublin, 23rd September 2010 –RedMere®, a leading supplier of smart active cable solutions has announced the introduction of the second generation long cable module, the MEA1691, at CEDIA EXPO 2010. The MEA1691 is a compact HDMI 1.4 certificated 10.2Gbps booster module that guarantees interoperability and is future proofed for 3D-ready applications.
This compact booster module fits neatly into the sink side of the HDMI cable and can support 1440p DTV resolutions, 16-bit color depth and 120Hz refresh rates. The MEA1691 requires no external power supply even over distances of 130 feet. RedMere’s patented power-harvesting techniques minimize the current draw on the 5V line thereby complimenting energy efficient TVs.
Rising bandwidth demands to meet the rapid proliferation of 3D-HD technology means that typical HDMI cables are thick and heavy and do not match the ergonomic industrial designs of the modern TV or set-top box. RedMere enabled HDMI cables not only look much slimmer than the traditional HDMI cables but are easier to route and disguise in the home as well as guaranteeing optimum audio visual quality without the need for additional power. RedMere’s unique technology offers the consumer and installer alike a HDMI cable that matches the look, form and intelligence of the home theatre applications they service.
RedMere’s Chief Marketing Officer Ruud van der Linden commented “RedMere continues to make significant technological advances in the smart active cable market. The new MEA1691 is effectively the world’s most intelligent long cable module and can enable long, sleek and highly flexible cables that need no external power supply and are future proofed against advancements in the HDMI cable market, allowing the consumer to keep up with the rising popularity of 3D and other HD technologies in the home.”
