Wireworld Introduces New Line of HDMI & DVI Digital AV Cables

Wireworld`s Ultraviolet® 5 cables are engineered to deliver performance approaching that of the company`s top-of-the-line Starlight® 5 cables, but at more value-oriented prices.

COOPER CITY, FL., 7/22/04 - Wireworld has introduced its Ultraviolet® 5 line of digital audio/video cables for the new DVI (Digital Video Interface) and HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) interface standards employed by the most advanced audio -video components.


Wireworld's Ultraviolet® 5 cables are engineered to deliver performance approaching that of the company"s top -of -the -line Starlight® 5 cables, but at more value -oriented prices. The Ultraviolet 5 line consists of eight each HDMI -to -HDMI, DVI -to -DVI, and HDMI -to -DVI cables ranging from 40 inches to 50 feet in length, plus accessory adapters and plasma control cables.

With its throughput requirement of 5 Gigabits per second, the HDMI format is especially sensitive to cable performance issues, which increase dramatically as the length of the cable increases. On the internet video enthusiast forums, a significant number of users have been reporting difficulties with generic -quality HDMI cable runs in excess of 25 or 30 feet. However, thanks to its high build - and materials quality, Wireworld Ultraviolet 5 cables are certified by the HDMI testing organization for runs up to 50 feet, only 15 feet shy of the rating of its top -of -the -line Starlight 5 cables.

"We are extremely excited about these new digital media formats because there are unambiguous benefits gained from using higher quality cables," said David Salz, President and founder of Wireworld. "Right now, the market for upgrade DVI and HDMI cables is limited by the relatively small number of DVI and HDMI components in the hands of consumers. However, with the almost universal application of these standards for future components, we expect to see rapid growth of this market both in the US and overseas."

Wireworld cables are engineered for maximum conductivity so they neither add to nor subtract from the audio and video signals, which is what one would expect from an ideal cable. Wireworld Ultraviolet 5 cables use silver -coated oxygen -free copper conductors with connectors that are first coated with a relatively thick layer of silver and then plated with gold.

Wireworld Ultraviolet® 5 digital audio/video cables are currently available for prices ranging from $129.95 for a 40 -inch cable, to $549.95 for a 50 -foot cable.

Wireworld, which was founded by Salz in 1992, offers a broad spectrum of very high quality full -range and bi -wire loudspeaker cables, audio and video interconnects, digital audio interconnects, power cords, and digital A/V cables. The company has an excellent reputation among audio and home theater enthusiasts for producing high quality cables based on the use of objective perceptual testing, patented designs, premium materials, and exceptional manufacturing quality.
