The Monster HDMI Difference
While it is true that HDMI is a digital connection, not all cables are the same. Any cable used must not only pass the signal; it must maintain he signal with high-speed especially when accessing all of the advanced formats that are available from sources such as a Blu-Ray disc. Other HDMI cables do not provide protection from bends necessary for tight installation, or provide advanced manufacturing techniques and materials for proper terminations to eliminate noise. Only cables designed to eliminate noise and constructed with the highest standards to protect against installation methods will produce the highest definition audio and video.
Monster has been a leader in the HDMI connectivity from the beginning, working with HDMI LLC to educate consumers on the benefits and performance aspects of the cables. With Monster Advanced for HDMI design and construction for the highest level of HDMI performance is guaranteed, thanks to greater cable capacity for support of 10-bit, 12-bit available from advanced HD sources and displays.
Every Monster Ultra-High Speed rated cable is manufactured with 24K contacts for maximum signal transfer and ultra-low distortion at the point of connection, silver-content soldering, connecting the HDMI cable’s conductors to the connector’s internal connection pins lowers resistance and maximizes digital signal transfer. Additionally, Monster Advanced for HDMI cables feature a heavy-duty internal metal shell which provides full shielding of the internal conductor wiring routed inside the connector. This provides an extra defense against interference that can enter at the connector can degrade the digital signal causing a poor image or drop-outs in the audio. This provides an advantage in performance not found in other HDMI cables. Many HDMI cables only feature metal at the connection point. Inside the connector, a thin plastic shield typically separates the molded or metal connector body from the wiring inside. This type of construction allows for damage to the conductor wiring caused during installation or everyday use to needlessly expose the stream bit to noise. These advanced design and construction features provide for the Highest Definition possible for the full entertainment experience today and into the future.
