RedMere Heralds Mini HDMI Cable Usage
RedMere, a developer of smart HDMI technologies, is introducing a 30-pin, portable HDMI cable for the iPad 2 and other Apple products to replace the clunky Digital A/V adapter consumers had to buy separately.
The company has also embarked on a marketing campaign, mainly through its manufacturer and some retail partners, to educate the industry about the benefits of the new lines of portable, ultra-thin HDMI cables that will start hitting the market in greater numbers during the next few months.
RedMere creates the chips behind active (or "smart") HDMI cables, which are being sold and marketed by Monster, Vizio, Radio Shack, Samsung, PNY and Buffalo Japan. With the proliferation of portable devices, such as tablets, smartphones and digital cameras and camcorders, Peter Smyth, RedMere's founder and CEO, believes it's time too start evangelizing portable HDMI cables and their different usage models.
