The Optimized Cable Company Difference:

Optimized Cable Company's cables are specially designed for hi-def video and audio signals for professional and home theater installations, using 1080p, 1080i, 720p and 480p. All of our cables are made using high quality cabling, shielding and jacket material. We use gold plating for increased connectivity, longevity and signal strength.

Why Gold Plated Connectors?

Many people wonder if they need Gold Plated connectors. Gold Plated connectors resist corrosion 100 times better then non-gold plated connectors. Many home theater applications require cables to be run through walls, fireplace chases and other moisture rich areas. Using Gold Plated connectors ensures that you will not have future corrosion problems that may result in signal loss.

Do I need a super thick or fancy looking cable?

As you may have noticed, some cables sold at electronic retail stores are twice as thick as a standard DVI or HDMI cable. This is done to make the cable appear to be "more high quality." Because the cable jacket is much thicker, buyers often think that the signal may be better and spend three times as much money. The fact is, a thicker cable jacket does not produce a better signal. In fact, professional installers shy away from those cables. Those fancy retail store cables are much more difficult to connect, run through walls and conceal behind hanging Plasma and LCD monitors. Many of those retail store cables also have snake-style or soft fancy covers that look really expensive. Those cables do not fare well inside moisture rich wall chases in homes. The best cable you can purchase is the one that is totally encased in a PVC style jacket to keep it completely protected from moisture and cold. This style of cable will last the longest and provide the best signal. The last thing you want to do is rip into your walls to replace a corroded cable a few years down the line.

More info about HDMI:

HDMI is the most recent break-through in high-definition, transmitting your Blu-Ray and HDTV audio and video content through a single high-speed cable. HDMI stands for High-Definition Multimedia Interface. The developers of HDMI are electronics manufacturers and media distributors like Sony, Toshiba, Panasonic, Philips, Hitachi and others, forming the HDMI Consortium.

At Optimized Cable Company, we specialize in state-of-the-art home theater cables and accessories for hi-def plasma and LCD monitors, HD Blu-Ray and DVD players, stereo receivers, projectors and more. Our HDMI cables are tested and certified, meeting all Consortium-required specs.

Every cable we sell has our unconditional lifetime warranty. High-tech commercial installers use our cables because we offer a great product line at a fair price. There are no hidden handling fees or shipping charges. The price you see is the price you pay. And we ship fast.

Our HDMI cables boast a PVC-style category 2 cable jacket, 19-pin high-purity copper conductors, gold-plated molding, and braided-aluminum triple shielding to protect against electromagnetic interferance and cross-talk.

Our high-end, gold-plated connectors resist corrosion 100 times better than tin plated courtesy cables. When snaking cables through moisture-rich areas like fireplaces and crawl spaces, you want solid construction. Use our gold plated cables to protect against corrosion that can result in picture degradation.

HDMI is gaining popularity and availability as more manufacturers develop components and devices that support digital hi definition signals. Cable and satellite television providers are now offering their set-top equipment with HDMI output, making installation a snap. With our HDMI cables, you can transmit uncompressed, lossless, digital-only audio and video to your display.
