NORDOST TO LAUNCH NEW HIGH DEFINITION VIDEO CABLE LINE AT CES 2OO4

The First Video Cables to Utilize Dual Micro Mono-Filament™ Technology

Las Vegas, NV - January 8 -11, 2004 - Alexis Park Booth #1604 & 1605 - Nordost Corporation announces the launch of SILVER SCREEN HD, a new range of high performance video cables. Nordost will unveil and demonstrate the new cable line at the 2004 International CES Show at the Alexis Park Hotel, Booth #'s 1604 & 1605.


SILVER SCREEN HD video cables offer tremendous improvements in picture quality due to the use of Nordost's proprietary Dual Micro Mono -Filament™ technology. This Nordost patent pending design offers major advantages over conventional cable construction with a signal speed of over 90% the speed of light. This new technology produces a sparkling and precise image that gives a real sense of three -dimensional space to the picture.

The SILVER SCREEN HD cable range uses Dual Micro Mono -Filament technology to increase the signal speed and to give the cable an extremely wide bandwidth. According to Joe Reynolds, Product Development Director at Nordost, "The new technology is derived from work we have done on developing very high speed cable solutions for use in super computers. In order to have the propagation speed and bandwidth necessary for these applications, we needed to minimize the effect of the insulation material on the conductors."

To do this, two Teflon threads are first wrapped around each other and drawn in a helix around a highly polished silver plated conductor. Nordost then extrudes a Teflon tube around the conductor. This precision manufacturing technique means that 85% of the conductor surface is suspended in air. The use of Teflon, which has a very low dielectric constant, coupled with Nordost's Dual Micro Mono -Filament manufacturing technique, produces a cable with very low signal loss and massive bandwidth. This bandwidth extends way above the upper range of video signals into the Giga Hertz range.

"The result," continues Reynolds, "is a cable which has stunning picture quality, superb color information and a tremendous depth of field." The new range consists of six cables: composite video, S -Video, component video and RGB as well as a SCART cable for the European market.

Available and shipping now, the SILVER SCREEN HD cables carry the following suggested retail prices: Composite cable is $124.99/meter (additional half -meter increments are $16.00); S -Video cable is $259.99/meter (additional half -meter increments are $32.00); Component cable is $299.99/meter (additional half -meter increments are $48.00); RGB video cable is $499.99/meter (additional half -meter increments are $64.00).
