HDMI Performance Indicators to Ensure Proper Calibration and Best Possible Pictures --
Las Vegas, NV - January 9, 2012 -- Monster®, a world leader in advanced audio/video accessories, is continuing to lead the way into the future of higher definition TV images and sound with the debut of its ISF Imaging Science Foundation line of ultimate-quality, high speed HDMI cables. Created in conjunction with the ISF Imaging Science Foundation, Monster's ISF connectivity solutions, including the world's fastest 21gpbs cables. They are meticulously engineered to provide consumers and custom integrators with the assurance of maximum picture and audio quality when used with any of today's and tomorrow's advanced high definition home entertainment components, including those offering full HD 3D capability. The new cables are available in three speeds, including the ISF 2000 (21 gpbs), in lengths from 4- to 75-feet with suggested retail prices from $120 to $500; the ISF 1250 (17.8 gpbs) in lengths of 4- to 75-feet and prices from $80 to $400; and the ISF 750 (14.3 gpbs), in lengths ranging from 4- to 16-feet and prices from $50 to $120.
One of the key and breakthrough benefits of Monster's new ISF cables for both consumers and custom integrators is that they finally solve one of the most pressing issues in today's HDMI universe, namely, making 100% sure that the HDMI signal from sources such as Blu-ray players and satellite receivers is actually being displayed properly on your HDTV. With ISF cables, as soon as you connect your devices you can see immediately whether or not the signal is being conveyed in its purest form to your display device - eliminating guesswork when setting up set top boxes and other hard-to-use sources quick and hassle free.
Monster's HDMI Performance Indicators Ensure Total Peace of Mind
Monster's ISF cables open up an exciting new category in advanced connectivity, providing home entertainment enthusiasts with a new level of confidence and peace of mind, secure in the knowledge that they are always getting the very best out of their systems. Notably, in addition to their super fast speeds, all ISF cables feature Monster's onboard HDMI Performance Indicators that light up and show the signal strength going through the cable, making it easier than ever before for consumers and installers to optimize TV displays for maximum performance. This ensures that viewers always enjoy the richest blacks, most natural colors and contrast, and the absolute sharpest pictures.
Additionally, all ISF cables feature Monster's renowned V-Grip, an innovation solution that solves the problem of HDMI cables falling out of their ports, due to their heavier construction. The uniquely engineered V-Grip increases the pressure on the outside of the connector, ensuring that the end remains firmly planted in the display device or receiver, without placing increased stress on the delicate internal pins or conductors on the cable itself.
Head Monster Noel Lee noted: "With so many options in home entertainment these days, people are looking for the easiest and best ways to make sure they are getting the optimal performance from their components. One of the most important ways for everyone to enjoy maximum performance, of course, is to properly calibrate your display device for the viewing environment. Monster offers the only cable designed specifically for use in ISF calibration, and our new ISF cables not only make calibration simple and straightforward, but provide the data rates necessary to enjoy maximum benefits from the very latest generation of products like full HD 3D. Additionally, when future components arrive that demand an even larger 'data pipe' our cables will be ready for them."
Monster is Ensuring Current and Future HDMI Performance
To provide the ultimate in consumer confidence, all Monster ISF Imaging Foundation cables carry the company's "Cable for Life" performance guarantee. Cable for Life ensures that if the components customers purchase in the future ever surpass the bandwidth capabilities of the cables Monster will upgrade their cable.
