New York, NY, June 27, 2012 — Monster®, a world leader in advanced audio/video accessories, is continuing to lead the way into the future of higher definition video and sound with the availability of its Imaging Science Foundation (“ISF”) certified line of ultimate-quality, high speed “Smart” HDMI cables. Designed to meet the ISF’s rigorous  standards, Monster’s ISF certified connectivity solutions, including the ultrafast 21Gbps cables, are the only HDMI cables certified by ISF for high resolution displays. The Monster “Smart” HDMI cables are meticulously engineered to provide consumers and custom integrators with the assurance of maximum picture and audio quality when used with any of today’s advanced high definition home entertainment components, including those offering HD 3D and now 2K x 4K capability.

Monster’s new cables are available in three speeds, including the ISF 2000 (21 Gbps), in lengths from 5- to 75-feet, (SRP: $150 to $350); the ISF 1250 (17.8 Gbps) in lengths of 5- to 75-feet (SRP:$100 to $225); and the ISF 750 (14.3 Gbps), in lengths ranging from 5- to 16-feet (SRP:$60 to $200).

World’s First “Smart” HDMI Cables Maximize HDTV Performance

New technologies such as 4K capability in displays and Blu-ray players put new demands on cables. One of the key and breakthrough benefits of Monster’s new ISF cables is that they finally solve one of the most pressing issues in today’s HDMI universe, namely, making sure that the HDTV content from sources such as Blu-ray players and satellite receivers is actually being sent over the HDMI cable properly to  your HDTV. Thanks to the new Monster “Smart” ISF cables, as soon as you connect your devices you can see immediately whether or not the signal is being conveyed in standard definition, high definition or in the newest 4K resolution – eliminating guesswork when connecting set top boxes and other hard-to-use sources quick and hassle-free. This breakthrough capability is ideal for consumers and professional custom integrators alike.

Monster’s HDMI Performance Indicators Ensure Total Peace of Mind

Monster’s ISF certified cables open up an exciting new category in advanced connectivity, providing home entertainment enthusiasts with a new level of confidence and peace of mind, secure in the knowledge that they are always getting the very best out of their systems. Notably, in addition to their super-fast speeds, the ISF 1250 and 2000 cables feature Monster’s onboard HDMI Performance Indicators – made possible by technology developed by RedMere®. This new application of RedMere technology provides a visual indicator of the video format up to and including 4K resolution, making it easier than ever before for consumers and installers to correctly set up TV displays and source components for maximum performance. This ensures that viewers enjoy the richest blacks, most natural colors and contrast, and sharp picture quality.

Additionally, all of our ISF certified cables feature Monster’s renowned V-Grip™, an innovative solution that solves the problem of HDMI cables falling out of their ports due to their heavier construction.  The uniquely engineered V-Grip increases the pressure on the outside of the connector, ensuring that the end remains firmly planted in the display device or receiver, without placing increased stress on the delicate internal pins or conductors on the cable itself.

Head Monster Noel Lee noted: “With so many options in home entertainment these days, people are looking for the easiest and best ways to make sure they are getting the optimal performance from their components.  One of the most important ways for everyone to enjoy maximum performance, of course, is to properly calibrate your display device for the viewing environment.  Monster offers the only  HDMI cable designed specifically for use in ISF calibration, and our new ISF certified cables not only make calibration simple and straightforward, but provide the data rates necessary to enjoy maximum benefits from the very latest generation of products like full HD 3D. Additionally, when future components arrive that demand an even larger ‘data pipe’ our cables will be ready for them.”

Monster is Ensuring Current and Future HDMI Performance

To provide the ultimate in consumer confidence, all Monster ISF certified HDMI cables carry the Monster “Cable for Life” performance guarantee. Cable for Life ensures that if the components customers purchase in the future ever surpass the bandwidth capabilities of their Monster cables Monster will upgrade their cable for free.

The Widest Range of Products to Choose From

Monster offers the world’s widest and most comprehensive selection of HDMI cables for consumers to choose from with the widest range of prices and performance from its non-speed-rated Monster Basic™ for HDMI™ to its Ultimate High Speed rated products.  All of Monster’s latest HDMI cables meet or exceed the latest HDMI specification, are rated for in-wall installation and deliver all functionality such as Audio Return Channel (ARC) and HDMI Ethernet Channel (HEC).
