Monster Advanced™ for HDMI™
Monster Advanced HDMI is your all-in-one audio and video connection to the most lifelike and exciting experiences in home entertainment. Today's cutting-edge HDTVs and high definition sources demand dramatically higher data rates than previous generations of AV components and place incredible bandwidth/performance demands on HDMI cables. In fact, today's most advanced components operate very close to the limits of current HDMI technology.
Take 1080p video with advanced 12-bit colour, also called Deep Colour, available right now from the PlayStation® 3. To experience this level of high definition performance, your HDMI cable must exceed the requirements of the HDMI 1.3a, CAT 1 specification, and support an astonishing cable data rate of 6.68 Gbps. That's more than six billion bits per second, six times the data rate required for standard DVD playback. That speed is also higher than what's required for Simplay HD verification. In other words, just because a cable is Simplay HD logo on the packaging, doesn't necessarily mean it supports Deep Colour.
