    BRISBANE, CA, Feb. 14 /CNW/ - Monster, the world's leading manufacturer
of high-end cables, accessories and power conditioning products, is proud to
announce the introduction of speed rated HDMI(TM) cables to Canada. The
company's advanced line of speed rated cables includes products in 4 different
speeds and prices to suit every need.
    Prices for Monster's core line pricing for a 1-meter length of speed
rated cable is as follows:

    MC 550HD (MSRP) $59.95
    MC 750HD (MSRP) $79.95
    MC 850HD (MSRP) $119.95
    MC 1000EX (MSRP) $149.95

    Noel Lee, Head Monster, says: "Consumers have many questions about HDMI
cables, such as 'What speed of cable is necessary for the best of today's
video displays and sources?' and 'Should I buy the cheapest cables or the
highest performance cables?' People also wonder whether their HDMI cable will
have adequate bandwidth for their application, as well as what will be the
requirements of higher bandwidth components in the future. That is why we have
started speed rating our cables, and why we offer a variety of speeds and
price points for every consumer application."

    Great Performance Even With Long-Length Cables

    Lee also notes that as HDTV displays get larger, people are positioning
their flatscreen displays farther and farther away from source devices. Using
long lengths of low-quality HDMI cables for this purpose can degrade screen
resolution and color depth. Monster is committed to leading the way in cable
technology, creating products that exceed current specifications and provide
great performance even at long lengths. This commitment reflects the company's
29-year history of building quality cables and its portfolio of over 100 cable
and connector patents. Additionally, Monster's new speed rating and
performance system makes it easy for consumers to know their cable will
deliver the very best performance when used with today's most advanced home
entertainment components as well as those of tomorrow.

    Four Different Levels of HDMI Performance

    To help answer these questions and bring a new level of quality to HDMI
viewing, Monster is launching its new line of Speed Rated cables with four
different levels of HDMI performance, including Standard Speed, High Speed,
Advanced High Speed and Ultra High Speed.

    -   The Ultra-High Speed cable is ready to deliver not just everything
        available today but also the amazing audio/video features that are
        right around the corner. Model name for Ultra-High Speed cable is
        MC 1000 EX.
    -   Advanced High Speed cables are for those who want better performance
        from today's technologies, such as advanced color and lossless
        audio. Model name for Advanced High Speed cable is MC 850HD.
    -   High Speed cables deliver higher definition picture and sound at a
        price everyone can afford. Model name for the High-Speed cable is
        MC 750HD.
    -   Standard Speed cables offer entry-level high definition for HDTV
        buyers on a budget. Model name for the Standard Speed cable is
        MC 550HD.

each cable supports, from higher resolution video to advanced color and more.
