NEWS: TCI's cost-effective short-run HDMI cables

The new HDMI cable from True Colours Industries is unusual in that it doesn't claim to deliver superior picture or sound in runs that would let you put your projector down the other end of the garden.

Instead, Copperhead Lite is designed for short runs, such as those from a Sky HD box or Blu-ray/HD DVD player to an AV receiver or TV.

The cable uses high-purity linear crystal oxygen-free conductors with multi-layer shielding, and conforms to the requirements of HDMI V1.3a, meaning it will carry 1080P video and high-resolution audio.

It's available in a 1m HDMI to HDMI version at £45, and in both HDMI/HDMI and HDMI/DVI 2m lengths at £60.
