Ethereal Introduces EXS Series HDMI Cables

Breakthrough HDMI cable series designed by renowned A/V innovator Jay Victor for superior performance

HOLLY HILL, FLA., SEPTEMBER 4, 2007: Because not all HDMI cables are created equal, Ethereal Home Theater's commitment to design and manufacturer the industry's most advanced, best -performing HDMI cables has resulted in its new EXS Silver Series HDMI cables.


Designed and engineered by renowned A/V innovator Jay Victor, the EXS Silver Series HDMI cables incorporate solid technology that delivers the full visual impact of HDTV. Available in 2 -, 4 - and 6 -meter lengths, it is manufactured to standards exceeding those of HDMI LLC 1.3 and Simplay Labs, the world's leading HDMI testing program, which is open to all manufacturers of consumer electronics devices implementing HDMI/HDCP.

Ethereal's EXS Silver Series HDMI cables use silver -plated PCOCC signal conductors for a more stable impedance that ensures the best possible video performance from connected equipment. PCOCC is mono -crystal copper that distorts the signal far less that OFC copper, and results in significantly less signal loss.

"The reason I chose PCOCC for the EXS Series HDMI cables is that it is the finest conductor material that I know of, and it will not restrict performance like other materials might," Victor said. "This is the only HDMI cable that I am aware of that uses PCOCC conductors."

The series also uses 24 AWG conductors instead of the industry standard 28 AWG to achieve transmission properties over long lengths, and is constructed with special attention to eliminate the inter -pair and intra -pair skew that can create errors in the digital signal.

Other leading -edge features include:
• Five separate shields for maximum noise isolation
• Premium -quality, abrasion -resistant high -temperature PVC jacket for maximum durability
• Precision -machined gold -plated connectors for maximum conductivity and reliability
• Nitrogen -injected foamed Skin -Foam -Skin polyethylene dielectric for maximum signal transfer and superior picture quality

Ethereal ensures that all - not just the shortest - lengths of HDMI cable in all of its series have HDMI Certification, and that each individual cable undergoes five physical tests at the factory before being packaged - with connection to a display the final test.

All Ethereal cables are roHS and California Proposition 65 compliant.
