Pulse Becomes a High-Definition Multimedia Interface Adopter

This site has moved to

October 2, 2006 - Pulse®, a Technitrol Company (NYSE: TNL), a leader in electronic component and subassembly design and manufacturing, announced that it has become a High-Definition Multimedia Interfaceâ„¢ (HDMI) adopter company, joining with other companies that provide products that meet the next-generation digital interface specifications for consumer electronic products. Pulse's Connector Division will be designing and manufacturing the products that meet the licensing agreements and requirements of HDMI.

By delivering crystal-clear, all-digital audio and video via a single cable, HDMI dramatically simplifies cabling while providing consumers with the highest-quality home theater to date. HDMI is the first and only industry-supported, uncompressed, all-digital audio/video interface. The de facto consumer electronics standard can be used between any audio/video source, such as a set-top box, DVD player, or A/V receiver and an audio and/or video monitor, such as a digital television (DTV), over a single cable.

HDMI Licensing, LLC is the agent responsible for administering the licensing of the HDMI specifications, promoting the HDMI standard, and providing education on the benefits of HDMI to retailers and consumers. More than 400 companies have entered into the Adopter Agreement to make and sell HDMI-based products, and more than 60 million devices featuring HDMI are expected to ship in 2006.

"By becoming an adopter, Pulse has access to the latest updates, specification changes, and information about HDMI and its participating member companies," said Mark Jackson, product manager for Pulse's Connector Division. "Being members of the Multi-media over Coax and WiMax Alliances, Pulse has always emphasized quality and has stayed on the leading-edge of technology."
