<p>PRESS RELEASE: In Brief For Immediate Distribution:</p>
<p>Kordz, a fast growing Australian home electronic accessory/HDMI cable specialist today announced the release of the EVX series of HDMI cables which CEO David Meyer claims “represents the pinnacle of HDMI cable technology.”</p>
<p>“For those consumers willing pay thousands of dollars for the very best technology in home cinema/home audio entertainment hardware – and then connect that technology with anything less than the best HDMI cabling available is at least a serious quality compromise and at worst a waste of money,” Mr. Meyer said.</p>
<p>The high purity, silver plated HDMI cables have been specifically designed to pair with high end AV devices, meeting the latest stringent international demands of HDMI ‘High Speed’ compliance even at long lengths, and will carry the industry renowned Kordz “immortal” lifetime warranty.</p>
<p>• The EVX HDMI cables will be officially released in 1-5m lengths at next week’s Darling Harbour CEDIA EXPO 09, July 13-17 - Australia’s peak Custom Electronic Design &amp; Installation Association’s annual conference and exhibition. The annual event covers the latest products and services in Audio Visual, Home Cinema, Home Office IT, Remote Lighting, Security, Air Conditioning , Home Automation, Energy Management and Communications. Long length active High Speed models up to 18m will follow in September.</p>
<p>Further EVX demonstrations and training days will be held around Australia following the CEDIA Expo in Sydney : WA training organised by Westec – 20th and 21st - QLD training organised by JM trading – 22nd - Auckland NZ training organised by Digital world 23rd and 24th. There will be a joint Kordz/Pioneer HDMI Information Day at Pioneer Head Office July 27 and July 28.</p>
The EVX series of HDMI™ cables represent the pinnacle of HDMI cable technology. To meet the stringent demands of HDMI ‘High Speed’ compliance at long lengths, new design principles had to be implemented. Development of the Kordz GEN-4 cables began as a ground up project with this flagship principle in mind. All other GEN-4 HDMI cables borrow technology from this series, but compromised to meet a price / performance ratio. One of the key developments in the GEN-4 HDMI cables is the new Kordz Bitrate Optimised Soldering System (B.O.S.S.™) termination method. Previous generations of Kordz cables utilised hand soldering methods, as do most brands of HDMI cables today. B.O.S.S.™ termination uses a hi-tech automated soldering process that ensures complete consistency in size and quality of each and every solder joint, reducing resistance and digital jitter. In addition, the tight tolerance connectors ensure a reliable fit, and the new flat geometry cable provides increased performance, improved flexibility and reduced weight. Large gauge cores are utilised throughout, while the use of solid core conductors (rare in any class) places all of the class leading 7% silver volume where it’s most effective – at the surface of each of the sensitive TMDS channels. The result is what we believe is the best you can buy, regardless of price.
• High purity 7% silver plated, high AWG cores provides minimal digital jitter for class-leading picture and sound
• Triple shield TMDS channels – 2 × mylar foil wrap layers, plus copper braid
• Lightweight aluminium shell over a full alloy internal shielding shell
• Full CEC support for remote control via HDMI with compatible hardware
• High Speed 10.2Gbps on all lengths
• 1m / 3′3″ – 5m / 16′4″ lengths feature exclusive cotton/nylon sleeve for a soft and silky texture
• 7m / 22′11″ + lengths feature MagnifEYE™ active power harvesting technology for in-cable EQ
• Caters for all features of HDMI 1.3 and even 1.4 (except ethernet functionality)
• Official HDMI Adopter status
• Kordz® IMMORTAL lifetime warranty or</p>
