DENVER, Sept. 6, 2007 - Phoenix Gold (phoenixgold.com), a division of Rodin, is proud to announce that it will debut its new HDMI Signal Repeater at the 2007 CEDIA Expo, held from Sept. 6 -9 at the Colorado Convention Center, booth #516. Planned to ship in time for CEDIA, the Phoenix Gold HDMI HD.REP -FF Signal Repeater is designed to provide up to 1080p high -resolution transmission over long cable runs of up to 36 meters (118 ft).


"Longer HD cable runs snaked through walls has been a problem faced by many installers," explained Stewart Millager, Phoenix Gold director of engineering. "Phoenix Gold has come up with the answer with an updated line of affordable UL CL -3 rated 1080i and 1080p HDMi cables with available repeater to ensure long 1080p signal transfer from source to display."

The Phoenix Gold HDMI HD.REP -FF Signal Repeater's built -in technology restores the digital clock speed of the digital signal before adding up to a three meter (10 ft) cable connected to the Television/Monitor. Phoenix Gold features three extended lengths of HDMI 900 Series cable (20, 25 and 36 meters) packaged with the HD -REP -FF HDMI 1.3a Repeater/Extender.

Phoenix Gold's UL CL -3 rated HDMX.975 HDMI cable is approved for in -wall installation for both commercial and residential applications, and it is worthy of 1080p standards by meeting and surpassing these requirements with an affordable solution. The 900 series HDMI1.3a supports 1080p standards and, with the available repeater, will pass 1080p standards up to 36 meters.

"The new Phoenix Gold HDMX.900 series HDMI cables offers a broad range of audio/video cabling solutions, including Simplay rated cables, HDMI1.3a supporting 1080p, new longer lengths in addition to our very popular nine and 15 meter versions,
and three new models packaged with the repeater/extender," added Millager. "Each and every Phoenix Gold 900 series HDMI cables features Dual Ferrite Cores, 24 to 25 gauge silver treated internal conductors, and UL CL -3 rated outer jackets approved for in -wall commercial and residential applications. It's everything an installer and consumer could want in premium HDMI cable."
