Orlando, FL -January 2011 -Tributaries is pleased to offer its new HEC HDMI with Ethernet cables. The new models conform to the performance requirements consistent with all the new HDMI v1.4 upgrades. Additional improvements on the connectors and the cables provide easier installation and improved signal transfer over long distances. The new HEC cable has one extra conductor in the number 14 -pin position, previously unused on the HDMI connector for the dedicated Ethernet Channel.

Shorter Connectors
Tributaries' has decreased the overall length of the HDMI connector body by approximately a quarter of an inch. This space -savings is critical for installers who must to fit these cables into tight spaces and where hiding the cable behind a flat panel is becoming increasingly difficult.

Go! Technology™
To ensure proper signal transmission over longer lengths, Tributaries HDMI cables, are engineered with Go! Technology™. This new technology consists of an on -board miniature passive network built into the receiving -end connector. As a result, the cables with Go! Technology™ are directional. To ensure the cables are connected correctly, a flag -type label is attached to the cable prior to the receiving -end connector. Also, the receiving -end connector is labeled "Go!►" indicating the proper direction of signal. Connection and operation is that simple -no extra parts or power, Just Plug it in and Go!™.

Lastly, based on dealer feedback, Tributaries has added longer lengths for all series of HDMI cable as well as darker jackets in the two top lines; the Series 7 and Series 9.

Each cable length has been certified to pass eye pattern tests as follows:
Series 3 are High Speed with Ethernet with lengths to 6 meter.
Series 5 are High Speed with Ethernet to 8m and Standard Speed with Ethernet to 15m.
