RedMere makes some skinny HDMI cables


Most of you have probably used HDMI cable for your home theater, and this thick cable is going to be more in demand.

After all, many phones like the Nokia N8 have an HDMI port so video files on the phone can be viewed on bigger screens. If every phone has this feature, then not only will it increase the demand for HDMI cables, but create a need for them to be thinner, lighter, and more portable. 

It would appear that a company called Red Mere is ahead of the curve as they are making thinner HDMI cables. Guess which one of the HDMI cable cross-sections in the photo above is a RedMere. 

How is this possible? I talked to RedMere at CTIA Fall 2010, and they use some sort of chip that fits in the HDMI plug itself. They wanted to show me the chip, but they seemed to have lost it at their booth. 

I’m not certain what to think of that, but I won’t hold it against the company. In fact, I think RedMere is going to have a lucrative future when everyone needs an HDMI cable. Perhaps there will come a day when all phones have an HDMI cable that can stretch and retract, and RedMere will be the supplier.


  1. The "multimedia" in HDMI includes audio and visual, whereas DVI only includes video. Additionally, HDMI is by definition "high definition" graphics only, whereas DVI is anything involving digital graphics, which includes high definition as well as low definition graphics. DVI includes all images created via the display of pixels, or non analog video. So, though all HDMI is digital video, or DVI, not all DVI is HDMI. HDMI offers superior, higher resolution graphics displays. DVI includes the universe of digital video displays, high and low.

  2. Hello! I could have sworn I’ve visited this website before but after going through a few of the posts I realized it’s new to me.
    Anyways, I’m definitely happy I stumbled upon it and I’ll be book-marking it and checking back often!
