Pangea Audio Introduces Ultra -Premium HD -24PC HDMI™ Cable at Affordable Prices

High-purity silver coating over audiophile-grade copper conductors ensures best-in-class video clarity and audio transfer capability

Grand Rapids, MI -February 18th, 2010 -Pangea Audio (www.pangeaaudio.com), delivering unprecedented value to the audiophile marketplace, has announced the introduction of Pangea Audio's HD -24PC HDMI cable, featuring a high -purity silver coating over audiophile -grade PCOCC (99.99999% pure) OHNO -cast copper conductors (a patented casting process developed by professor Ohno of the Chiba Institute of Technology in Japan), which are typically ten -times more expensive than standard copper conductors. Thanks to this premium combination, you'll enjoy fantastic video signal clarity and audio transfer for the ultimate movie playback experience.


Triple -Shielded Cables Employ 4% Silver Coating and Gold -Plated Contacts

Pangea HD -24PC 24 -gauge cable is triple -shielded for maximum RF and EMI rejection, and it uses advanced nitrogen gas -injected dielectric wire insulation along with gold -plated type A HDMI connectors featuring corrosion -resistant gold -plated contacts and a two -shot custom designed molded connector body. The 4% silver coating provides the best possible video signal transmission and overall detail, and the OHNO -cast copper conductors are the best solution for clear audio reproduction.

High Speed 340 MHz, 10.2 Gbps Cable

Pangea HD -24PC high -speed HDMI cable is 340 -MHz (10.2 -Gbps) category 2 -certified for HD signals up to 1080p and higher. It supports 10 -bit, 12 -bit & 16 -bit Deep Color depths for stunning rendering of over one billion colors in unprecedented detail - plus "x.v.Color™" which removes current color space limitations and enables the display of any color viewable to the human eye. The ultra -wide bandwidth specification supports Tru 24 fps, and 120 Hz refresh rate.

Supports Dolby TrueHD and DTS -HD Master Audio

On the audio side, Pangea supports high -bandwidth uncompressed digital audio and all currently available compressed formats such as SACD, DVD -Audio, Dolby Digital and DTS, plus adds additional support for new lossless compressed audio formats such as Dolby TrueHD, DTS -HD Master Audio™ and other formats.*
