Black Diamond Video ships DVI Copper Cable for Integrators and Installers

Alameda, CA - July 28, 2005 - Black Diamond Video, the new leader in Digital Visual Interface (DVI) switching and cabling technologies, has begun shipping the longest copper DVI to HDMI Cable available on the market today. The record breaking DVI to HDMI cables have begun shipping to integrators and installers. Supported by the Black Diamond Video DVI X -Treme, this comprehensive digital video cable solution allows video signals to pass distances over 60 meters at 1080p 60HZ, 1920x1200 or the higher 1600x1200. These patent pending BDV DVI X -Treme solutions are guaranteed to drive 1080p over 60 meters or more over the Black Diamond Video copper cable.

Black Diamond Video promotes the highest quality and longest distance copper DVI/ HDMI solutions on the market today. "We know video system designers, integrators and installers are looking for the right solution to drive the highest TMDS rates. DVI fiber is proving not to be the rugged solution that these professionals are looking for. Black Diamond Video believes working professionals look at flexibility, cost, ease and long -term reliability. As we found out, many of the solutions these folks have been using have been deficient when it comes to current and future high -definition digital video technology." said Ted Hoppe the Sales and Marketing VP for Black Diamond Video. "There are many companies out there who will sell you legacy analog coax or poor CAT -5 cable systems with no eye on the future or thought about what your customers will need in the year to come." Hoppe continued, "In our minds, that is backward thinking. We feel it is well worth our time to educate and introduce the CEDIA professional, the digital video system architect and the local installer to the best digital video switching and cabling technology available today. Black Diamond Video is working hard to become long term partners with those who sell, own, integrate, support and maintain the new digital video backbone."

As part of the Black Diamond Video education program, Black Diamond Video will be at CEDIA 2005 located at booth 4112. Additionally, look for applicable white papers and findings that will be posted on the Black Diamond Video website in the near future.
