Posted by Marc Ziccardi on Tue, Jun 22, 2010 @ 11:04 AM

PNY is proud to announce the introduction of a new line of product: PNY Active HDMI® Cables.

The next generation of HDMI cable technology, PNY Active HDMI Cables enable high-speed 1080p HD picture and sound, all in a new ultra-thin innovative design. PNY's Active HDMI Cables are certified at the latest High-Speed HDMI 1.4a standard, deliver a guaranteed 10.2Gbps (gigabits per second) bandwidth stream for flawless HD performance at the industry's highest current speed level, and are 3D ready. These Active HDMI Cables feature built-in chip technology that controls audio and video signals to enable digital surround sound and an optimal HD experience in 1080p and beyond. With support for Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, including 5.1 and 7.1 audio, these Active HDMI Cables offer a true digital cinema experience. At a fraction of the size of traditional HDMI cables, these measure a slender 3.6mm in diameter and are more pliable for ease of use and compact to reduce the space required for installation. Lightweight and ultra portable, these cables are small enough to fit in the palm of your hand when rolled up. PNY's Active HDMI Cables also allow for advanced display technologies, including being 3D ready and Blu-ray 3DTM functionality.

PNY's new sleek, flexible, and user-friendly Active HDMI Cables offer a heightened viewing experience to reproduce, rich, natural, lifelike colors in videos and photos and are available in 2 different connection models: Standard HDMI to HDMI (also known as Type A to A) and Mini HDMI to HDMI (also known as Type A to C). The A to A cable connects a cable box, Blu-rayTM Disc player, HD DVD player, laptop/PC, AV receiver, or video game console to a HDTV. The A to C cable is designed to connect small portable devices, such as a digital camera, SLR, and camcorder to a HDTV. The Active HDMI cables will be available in the following lengths:

HDMI to HDMI Cable
• 6ft (1.8m)

Mini HDMI to HDMI Cable
• 10ft (3.0m)
• 16ft (4.9m)

PNY will offer a Limited Lifetime Warranty on both Active HDMI Cable types. Users have a standard 1-year out of box warranty, extended to the lifetime of the original purchaser upon completion of product registration at within 90 days of purchase. PNY also offers free 24-hour technical support.

The new line of Active HDMI Cables offers PNY consumers the opportunity to enhance the experience of existing products: Memory Upgrades, GeForce Graphics Cards, and Flash Memory products; all of which the inclusion of HDMI Cables complement, offering a complete family lifestyle solution.

PNY's Active HDMI Cables will be available in July from select retailers and e-tailers nationwide. Visit to learn more about our complete line of products.
