PCT International, Inc. is pleased to announce its wholly-owned factory in Yantai, PRC, PCT Broadband Communication Co., Ltd., has been named as a Certified HDMI® Adopter by HDMI Licensing, LLC, the agent responsible for licensing the High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) Specification. As a certified adopter, PCT is authorized to design, manufacture and sell licensed products meeting the HDMI specification.
“HDMI technology is the global standard for connecting high-definition equipment and as a certified adopter, PCT is positioned to remain ahead of our competition for current and evolving standards. For long service life, highest video resolution and audio fidelity, our engineers utilize advanced materials and features not found in common HDMI products. PCT’s HDMI cables are specially designed to have industry leading shielding performance for noise immunity, corrosion and UV protection for long life, UL certification for safety, low dielectric constant insulators for high speed and connectors with grip providing a secure connection,” said Leonard Visser, PCT Vice President of Engineering.
PCT’s 28 AWG and 30 AWG high speed HDMI cables passed stringent testing at the HDMI Authorized Test Center (ATC), in accordance with the HDMI Compliance Test Specifications. PCT first self-tested its HDMI cables in accordance with the current HDMI Compliance Test Specification. PCT submitted each licensed product to the HDMI ATC for evaluation. With ATC certification in place, PCT’s own rigorous quality control procedures continue ensuring its products function correctly, fully comply with the HDMI Specification and Adopter Agreement and interoperate with other products.
