Their enthusiastic support of the DPL Program validates our belief that the industry needed to provide consumers with a clear and easy solution to the HDMI purchasing conundrum.

"DPL's performance testing and certification program is that solution. Consumers can now easily compare products within and between brands to ensure they are buying the right HDMI product for their specific application."
