Gefen HDMI booster cables
Gefen today debuted a new line of HDMI Super Booster Cables designed to deliver the clearest high-definition video resolutions with no additional sender and receiver hardware required. The cables -- which are available in lengths of 50, 75, 100, 125 and 150 feet -- are comprised of copper components and terminated on the receiving end with Gefen HDMI Booster technology. The technology enables users to deliver any HDMI source with its multichannel digital audio up to 150 feet without any degradation to the high-definition signal. Each HDMI Super Booster Cable delivers HDMI audio and video with full HDCP (high-bandwidth digital content protection) compliance, according to Gefen, and encoded video is delivered at its highest resolutions ranging from 480i to 1080p. The cables are available for pre-order from $300-550.
