VizionWare Introduces Hi -Wirez™ 3400 Series Active HDMI Cables

First Interconnects Capable of 3.4Gb Transmission Speeds at Lengths of Up to 20 Meters

VizionWare, the Texas -based signal management and signal conditioning company and creator of the award -winning Hi -Wirez™ 1650 Series Active HDMI Cables, announced today the release of the all new Hi -Wirez™ 3400 Series 3.4Gb Active HDMI Cables, the only HDMI cables on the market meeting the new HDMI 1.3 Category 2 specification in lengths beyond 1 meter.


Hi -Wirez 3400 Series interconnects represents a substantial step forward in HDMI transmissions. As the passive interconnect industry slowly evolves toward cable systems that are capable of handling transmissions of increasing "lossless" frequencies, the demands placed on these systems are increasing to the point where, once again, they are becoming incapable of performing as well as or better than the best source and sink devices now or soon to be available on the market.

"VizionWare's innovative and unique technologies have enabled the development of HDMI Category 2 functionality in long cable runs", said Ben Jamison, vice president of sales and marketing for VizionWare. "While some passive cables will be able to pass Category 2 functionality at very short lengths, VizionWare's 3400 Series interconnects are capable of full 3.4Gb HDMI Category 2 functionality at lengths up to 20 meters; 4 times longer than any other solution."

In keeping with their position as the leader in HDMI cable design, VizionWare's proprietary and patented Hi -Wirez Active technologies have made it possible for them to be the first company to market interconnects capable of 3.4Gb transmission speeds (HDMI 1.3 Category 2) at lengths of 1, 2, 5, 7, 10, 15 and 20 meters in anticipation of the market launch of source and sink devices capable of Category 2 features, allowing installers to make their current installations "future ready" using VizionWare products.

This "future readiness" provides great benefits, eliminating the frustration and expense for both end -users and system integrators resulting from installing an extensive cabling system only to discover that it will not support the next generation of high performance products currently in development. Hi -Wirez 3400 Series interconnects allow the installation of the most advanced products today - as well as the source and display technologies soon to be launched that can take advantage of Category 2's higher speeds.

Hi -Wirez 3.4Gb technology allows for the transmission of such formats as Deep Color™; wider, x.v.Color™ color space; and the new lossless audio formats Dolby TrueHD™ and DTS -HD Master Audio™ - all unsupportable under current passive interconnect technology at lengths greater than 1 meter, and all accessible now with Hi -Wirez 3400 Series Active HDMI Cables.

ELK Products -C1M1 Dual-Path Alarm Communicators with Remote Services

C1M1 offers a truly significant reduction in transmission time in comparison to other communicators that rely on dial capture or data bus decoding. This can result in quicker response time to emergency situations which could save lives and assets. By providing both IP and cellular pathways, C1M1 provides the reliability installers are looking for in an alarm communicator. C1M1 eliminates port forwarding and extra fees for remote access. Installers can remotely upload/download programming changes to M1 controls over IP or cellular using ElkRP2. Consumers can control the M1 remotely via the free ElkLink mobile app and web portal, as well as eKeypad and M1 Touch Pro apps. Other IP-based software and interface partners can connect to the M1 control over the local network through C1M1. C1M1 also provides email/text notifications for arm, disarm, and alarm events. ELK-C1M14GSM supports GSM (AT&T/T-Mobile) networks and ELK-C1M1CDMA supports CDMA (Verizon) networks.
