Today's consumer's digital lifestyle is rapidly expanding; people own computers, HDTVs, A/V components, and portable electronics - and all these devices are designed to be connected together and work together. Additionally, today's devices have increasing data capacities, and moving content between devices requires the proper high-performance cables. Monster® Digital Life cables are speed-rated to ensure the best possible performance, fastest data transmission rates, and fastest charging capabilities for all today's "Digital Life" needs.
Monster's new Digital Life product category helps consumers complete their experience, with all of the speed-rated USB, HDMI, DisplayPort and Mini DisplayPort, VGA, DVI, Ethernet, and more, cables and power products to connect all of their products together.
2011 Is the Year for "Digital Life"
Noel Lee, The Head Monster, noted: "2011 is the year for digital life! We are experiencing an explosion of new audio, video, computer and convergence devices that people can - and want - to connect together. Today's HDTVs can connect to the internet with Ethernet, you can view computer content on HDTVs with HDMI, you can view HD photos and videos on digital cameras and camcorders on HDTVs with mini HDMI, and the newest mobile phones have even smaller micro HDMI connections. With our new Digital Life line, we have used all our expertise to help people make these important connections, in order to get the most stunning pictures and video, highest quality audio and fastest data transfer rates possible - all in the simplest and most effective ways. Monster Digital Life literally lets you forget about your connections - and just get on with your 'Digital Life.'"
Debuting in Monster's new Digital Life lineup are the new Monster Digital Life™ SuperThin™ Micro HDMI Cables that make it easier and more convenient to enjoy HD pictures and videos from smart phones, camcorders and digital cameras on large-screen HDTVs, plus specialized Mini-DisplayPort Cables that allow consumers to connect the computer to HDMI, VGA, and DVI-enabled monitors and HDTVs, as well as new Ultra-High Performance USB 3.0 Cables that ensure the fastest audio, video, and data transfer rates available for USB 3.0 peripherals.
