HDMI is an acronym for High Definition Multi-Media Interface. The HDMI connection delivers digital video, digital audio and inter-component control signals all on one small, convenient multi-pin connection. DVI, an acronym for Digital Video Interface, has become a computer industry standard for transporting digital video signals between devices, or from source to display. Both systems allow an unprecedented level of video performance and are quickly becoming the de facto standard for high-end home theater installations. The Impact Acoustics SonicWave series of interconnects are well known for amazing performance at MSRP price points typically 30% below equivalent product from competing brands in the industry. SonicWave HDMI, DVI and HDMI-to-DVI interconnects will fast become the reference standard for both performance and value in the audio/video home theater industry and for critical computer graphics applications.

Impact Acoustics’ SonicWave brand HDMI and DVI products are fully optimized for multimedia performance. Both the HDMI and the DVI interconnects feature a 90% tinned copper braid over a 100% aluminum foil shield for maximum immunity to environmentally induced noise. The cables themselves are comprised of a combination of individually shielded pairs of silver-plated copper conductors combined with individual silver-plated copper conductors. All conductors are encased in a high-density nitrogen-injected polyethylene dielectric. All HDMI, DVI and HDMI-to-DVI interconnects feature 24k gold contacts set in a chrome-plated zinc alloy shell.
