Sometimes high definition doesn’t always deliver the very best. Why don’t you try telling that to Honeywell.
They have come up with an HDMI digital cable with CURxE Light technology, which corrects corrupted HDCP and EDID data. Otherwise, that HD image and your precious multi-channel audio might not be all it’s cracked up to be—and costing you.
You can blame the manufacturers (and sometimes transmission distances) for the problems—mainly because that’s the easiest thing to do. While no one except your elderly neighbors may hear your cursing, this cable may answer that call.
The magic is made possible because there’s a chip in the connector. The chip’s line driver cures corrupted HDCP and EDID data that can cause serious A/V artifacts. There’s also little LEDs embedded into the connector that can cue your installer in on HDMI’s problems.
Leave it alone, and you might as well bust out the rabbit ears. Corrupt data can cause the picture to drop out, loss of audio signals, incorrect resolution, “snow” in the picture, and more.
