HDMI LEADS SIGNIFICANTLY SLIMMER IN EVERY DIMENSION

SIGNIFICANTLY SLIMMER HDMI LEADS INTRODUCED IN 17 LENGTHS FROM 0.25M TO 7.5M


Significantly slimmer HDMI leads just 4.2mm thin1, with a connector head only 18mm x 15mm and in 17 lengths from 0.25m to 7.5m have been introduced by UK company TPS. Their unique combination of ultra-flexible cable, miniature head and choice of lengths helps keep the leads hidden from view and eliminates unnecessary coils of cable with today’s ever-increasing array of HDMI equipment.

Sporting a miniature metal head with a striking blue mirror-plated finish coupled with an ultraflexible cable and gold-plated contacts, the SlimHDMI leads are produced using premium-grade materials but are priced at just £4.99 - £14.99 including UK delivery and a lifetime warranty.

"Our aim was to offer something different in the crowded HDMI marketplace. We looked at what had happened in an era where over three billion HDMI devices had been sold and found that little had evolved in that 10-year period." said Craig Maden, managing director of TPS. "Many manufacturers offer leads in a few common lengths such as 1.5m, 3m and 5m, coating them in unnecessarily thick outer sheaths which make them difficult to bend and even harder to hide."

Engineered during ten months of prototyping, the leads have a reinforced collar which will allow them to be bent through 90 degrees just 30mm from the surface of the HDMI socket. This is particularly useful for discrete, hidden or wall mount installations, especially since manufacturers are placing HDMI sockets closer to the edges of their products whilst simultaneously making them thinner.

All major resolutions and protocols are supported including 4K Ultra HD, 3D and Audio Return Channel (ARC).

SlimHDMI leads are available in 17 lengths - 0.25m, 0.50m, 0.75m, 1.0m, 1.5m, 2.0m, 2.5m, 3.0m, 3.5m, 4.0m, 4.5m, 5.0m, 5.5m, 6.0m, 6.5m, 7.0m and 7.5m.

1Leads in lengths 5.5m and above have a diameter of 5.5mm
