Sales of RedMere’s HDMI Booster Modules Top One Million Units
18th October 2011
RedMere today announced it has surpassed sales of one million units of its active self-powered booster modules for HDMI cables. RedMere’s patented active cable technology, now adopted world-wide by global cable brands and OEM’s including Vizio®, Samsung®, PNY®, Monster®, RadioShack®, BUFFALO SUPPLY INC, and Kordz®, allows HDMI cables to be made ultra-thin and portable. There is an increasingly wide range of HDMI-enabled hand held products such as smartphones, tablets, digital cameras and video games that now connect to a HDTV or HD projector anywhere.
Before RedMere successfully developed this revolutionary chip technology, passive HDMI cables needed large amounts of copper and PVC to handle the high speed data rates which made the cables heavy and bulky. Because of RedMere’s booster module, consumers can now buy a 10-ft. active HDMI cable that is thin enough to coil up in their palm or pocket, but will support high definition signal transfer, deliver picture-perfect HD images and sound, and is 3D and 4K2K compatible.
RedMere’s CEO, Ruud van der Linden said “Not only has RedMere exceeded expected revenue figures for 2011 but to reach the one million unit sales mark so early in a young company’s history is a sure sign that RedMere is the leading technology provider in the active HDMI cable market. We work with the highest possible quality cable manufacturers, distributors and OEMs to help deliver what now is a global product – the ultra-thin active HDMI cable using RedMere’s booster module inside the connector.”
RedMere’s booster module is embedded into the sink (TV) side connector of the HDMI cable. The programmable active silicon embedded equalizer overcomes any performance limitations over wire gauge, length and frequency – allowing the self-powered module to act as the power-house of the cable, replacing the need for all the copper to transmit the signal reliably. Every single cable is individually tested at production, and compliance is fully guaranteed with the High Speed HDMI® standard, future proofing these super-slim cables against 3D or 4K2K compatibility.
