Revolutionary Active Hi-Wirez™ Technology One of First to Receive New DPL Ranking
AUSTIN, TX - September 20, 2007 - VizionWare, the Texas -based signal management and signal conditioning company and creator of the award -winning Hi -Wirez™ Active HDMI Digital Interconnects, announced today that the company is joining InVisions Technology's new Digital Performance Level (DPL) HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) Ranking System rating program.
The DPL Ranking System has been designed specifically to provide manufactures, customers, and retailers a system to judge the level of performance for each HDMI product's potential by way of comparison with the HDMI compliance minimums.
"As the leading provider of next -generation active digital interconnect products, VizionWare early on recognized the need for a standard of HDMI compliance so vendors and consumers know HDMI cables actually perform as intended," stated Ben Jamison, vice president of sales and marketing for VizionWare. "We're proud to be one of the first companies to sign on for the DPL Ranking System, so, once again, our customers know that VizionWare products always mean quality."
The DPL Ranking System's goal is to rate HDMI cables on a scale of 1 to 5 to determine how well each cable performs on a series of tests. After five to six hours of testing, each cable is assigned a number rating that begins at level 1 to a maximum performance level of 5. Level 1 would equate to the HDMI minimum compliance standards. The rating system, which was announced last month, is the concept of Jeff Boccaccio, who heads InVisions Technology.
"By joining the new DPL Ranking System, VizionWare has demonstrated they are clearly one of the leaders in this business," said Boccaccio. "By agreeing to undergo DPL testing, VizionWare is raising the bar for everybody in this industry, since they're one of the major players. It also provides some impetus for other manufacturers to get on board who may just be thinking about joining the DPL Ranking System."
VizionWare has submitted its new Hi -Wirez 1650 Series HDMI interconnects for DPL testing and plans to submit all VizionWare's products.
• VizionWare joins the effort to establish an industry -wide ranking system for HDMI cables.
• Critically acclaimed Hi -Wirez advanced active HDMI digital interconnects expected to be among the first cables to be rated by DPL program.
• VizionWare is one of the first seven companies to join the DPL Ranking System.
