March 17, 2009
March 17, 2009 -- The Monster cables incorporate RedMere's MagnifEye active chip technology, providing 10.2 Gbit/sec data rates.

March 17, 2009 -- RedMere, a developer of silicon chips, announced that it has teamed up with Monster, a manufacturer of high performance audio/video cables and accessories, to introduce what the company's claim is the thinnest "smart" active HDMI-certified cable available.

Featuring RedMere's MagnifEye active chip technology, the ultra-thin Monster cables will provide optimum performance when used with a wide range of products, including portable video and audio devices, home theater components and on-the-go computer storage applications.

The RedMere technology enables the cables to deliver a data rate of 10.2 Gbit/sec; the companies say that implementation of the new ultra-thin cable will result in easier cable management and portability.

"Monster has always delivered cables which match the performance and style of the products they connect, whether it's a DV camera, a games console or a home theater system," comments Peter Smyth, CEO of RedMere. "Using RedMere's MagnifEye active chip technology, Monster is adding intelligence directly into the cable, creating a range of smart cables which use the chip to adapt to the changing conditions in the application. These cables are smaller and lighter, matching the sleek appearance of the CE products they connect."

RedMere's active cable is a great addition to our HDMI lineup, and with CE trends today leaning toward miniaturization and total connectivity, RedMere's MagnifEye design is truly a cutting-edge design that will offer consumers a new level of flexibility, convenience and performance," adds Noel Lee, head of Monster.
