New SuperThin™ cable for HDMI™ Monster Ultimate High Speed-Rated at 17.8 Gbps
Joining Monster’s lineup is the company’s newest SuperThin™ cable™ for HDMI.™ Speed-rated at an astoundingly fast Ultimate High Speed 17.8 Gbps, the cable touts the very latest in integrated circuit technology and is specifically designed for use with a wide variety of today’s most advanced electronics devices, including super-slim flat-panel TVs, home theater systems, gaming consoles, and laptops. The key innovation that made the creation of Monster SuperThin Cables for HDMI possible is technology that requires no external power supply enabling industry-leading data speeds and ultimate-quality performance by boosting the HD signals directly in the SuperThin cable itself. This eliminates the need for heavy-gauge copper, making the cables extremely light, thin, easy to install and ultra portable. Monster’s new 17.8 Gbps SuperThin cables are scheduled for availability in April 2011 in Monster’s core line of products. Also available in Monster’s SuperThin line of cables is the new Micro HDMI cable for the ultimate in connectivity and portability for the latest HDMI enabled smartphones.

Noel Lee, the Head Monster, noted: “On the performance side Monster HDMI cables can deliver all the bandwidth needed to deliver the capabilities of today’s most advanced technologies simultaneously, even exceeding the current HDMI specification. This means that not only do our cables provide the data rates necessary to enjoy maximum benefits from the very latest generation of products like full HD 3D, but when future components arrive that demand an even larger ‘data pipe’ our cables will be ready for them. It’s not a question of ‘if’ but ‘when’ you’re going to need more bandwidth – and with Monster, you will be ready.”

“Cable for Life” Guarantee Ensures Current and Future HDMI Performance
In addition to Simplay Speed verification, to provide the ultimate in consumer confidence, all Monster Cables for HDMI at the Ultimate High Speed rating and Hyper Speed carry the company’s “Cable for Life” performance guarantee.
