Accell’s 2012 CES line up

Accell, a provider of premium audio/video and computer accessories,  unveiling the latest addition to the company’s extensive line of HDMI cables, the UltraRun Pro HDMI Cables, at the 2012 International CES.

Accell’s UltraRun Pro HDMI Cables support all video resolutions and formats, including 1080p, 1440p, 4K and 3D.  In addition, these active HDMI cables feature patented semiconductor technology from RedMere, embedded in the display-end of the cable, providing active signal equalization functionality, without requiring an external power source.

“Since Accell first launched its UltraRun active long-length HDMI cables in 2005, we have continuously reinvented this product category,” stated Michael Weizer, director of marketing, Accell.  “Supporting all video formats and resolutions, the UltraRun Pro cables now provide consumers and integrators with a robust, High Speed in-wall HDMI cable solution.”

Accell’s UltraRun Pro HDMI Cables feature the following:

  • HDMI High Speed with Ethernet and Audio Return Channel (ARC)
  • Built-in miniature signal equalizer for exceptionally long cable runs
  • Active cable technology, requiring no external power
  • Supports all HD resolutions and video formats, including 1080p, 1440p, 4K and 3D
  • UL Listed CL3 and CSA FT4 rated cable for in-wall installation

  • Status LED indicates a successful connection between source and display

As a follow-up to Accell’s UltraRun 1.3 cable, the UltraRun Pro HDMI cable will be available in lengths of up to 20m, and will support High Speed throughput of up to 10.2Gbps.

The UltraAV USB 2.0 to HDMI Audio and Video Adapter and the USB 2.0 to DVI-I or VGA Video Adapter both set up in minutes and eliminate the complicated process of adding an internal graphics card to a desktop PC.  Notebook users can add support for an additional monitor, while using a computer to stream video, movies or the Internet onto a large screen TV.  In addition, the adapters offer increased productivity by adding an additional display to mirror or extend a user’s desktop.

 

“By incorporating the DisplayLink DL-195 USB video processor to our new USB graphic adapters, we’ve eliminated the delay often seen in mid-level video processors,” stated Michael Weizer, director of marketing, Accell.  “Whether looking to stream video onto a large screen TV or add an additional monitor to your desktop, users will experience a solid and secure connection, with a definite increase in quality video performance.”

 

Available now at various Accell retailers and distributors, the UltraAV USB 2.0 to HDMI Adapter is available with an MSRP of $99.99, while the UltraVideo USB 2.0 to DVI-I or VGA Video Adapter is available with an MSRP of $89.99.
