Noted Noel Lee, the Head Monster: "The revolution in flat-panel TVs and portable digital products has changed the way people live, work and play. Monster is committed to helping take this revolution to the next level with a broad range of elegant, easy to use, common sense connectivity solutions. To this end, thanks to a new concept in "powered" cables for HDMI, we're able to offer a completely new type of 'magically thin' cable that's perfect for both flat-panel TV installations and on-the-go use. Our SuperThin lineup provides a much smaller and lighter connectivity solution than the world has ever known, and consumers can now enjoy a new level of freedom and flexibility with all their HD content while on-the-go."
Monster Powered Cables for HDMI
Monster SuperThin cables are made possible with an innovation called RedMere® MagnifEye® Active technology. Requiring no external power supply, the technology enables industry-leading data speeds and ultimate-quality performance by equalizing the HD signals directly in the SuperThin cable itself. This eliminates the need for heavy-gauge copper, making the cables extremely light, thin and portable. Monster SuperThin cables measure just 3.5 mm in diameter, approximately 55% thinner than other High-Speed Rated HDMI cables.
Monster's SuperThin Products Make Installation Easy
The new Monster SuperThin Cables for HDMI feature a built-in LED indicator that instantly flashes when the HDMI signal coming from any connected source component is active. Once the source and display are in sync, the LED shines constantly, confirming the connection. The virtually invisible cables are ideal for use in aesthetically designed, tight-fitting, against-the-wall home theater installations and those utilizing articulating mounts. Consumers can literally hide the cables away from plain sight, as well as fit them into tight corners for a new level of installation flexibility. In addition, Monster makes available, a specially designed SuperThin Swivel Adapter (MSRP:$34.95) that offers the ultimate in flexibility for tough HDMI connections requiring a super-tight and neat fit. This is ideal for installations in hard-to-reach areas or at difficult angles. Monster SuperThin connectivity solutions and complete line of FlatScreen mounts and accessories will help users make perfect flat screen installations quickly and easily.
