Spectra7 Microsystems, a high performance analog semiconductor company, recently unveiled its Detectiv4K integrated audio/video performance monitoring technology. According to a release, Detectiv4K is now embedded in Monster's latest Black Platinum adding to the existing use of Spectra7's home theatre technology in Monster's Core and MSeries cable lines, thereby creating a new generation of intelligent connectivity for home theatre and gaming enthusiasts.
Spectra7 Microsystems noted that with more than 200 million flat panel displays estimated to have shipped in 2013 and a more than 40- times increase in 4K TV shipments year over year according to NPD DisplaySearch, a new era of Ultra High Definition content has arrived. Home cinema and gaming technology is rapidly evolving to deliver the sound and picture quality previously only available in commercial, military and research applications.
As the industry migrates from HD 1080p to Ultra HD 4K displays, HDMI 1.4 to 2.0 connectivity, High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) 1.4 to 2.2, 8Bit Color to True Deep Color, and 30 to 60 frames per second (fps) consumers are faced with multiple interoperability challenges, analogous to those experienced with the transition from SD to HD TV. Moreover, many consumers spend thousands of dollars for the ultimate home theatre experience not realizing that their A/V components are operating at a sub-optimal level failing to deliver high quality video and sound. Using the embedded monitoring interconnect solution based on Spectra7's Detectiv4K ensures that A/V systems are future-proof ready and operating at the highest performance level and with the latest standards. Detectiv4K enables consumers to easily navigate the web of changing standards and achieve the full potential of their home entertainment system delivering the most stunning picture quality and lifelike acoustic sound.
By integrating Detectiv4K, Monster's new Black Platinum line features unique visual indicators which illuminate only when true Ultra HD 4K content is detected thereby providing the most brilliant picture quality, vibrant color and sharpest resolution. Combined with Monster's Cable for Life technology guarantee, Spectra7's Detectiv4K technology provides consumers the confidence that their home theatre systems are future-proofed for the next-generation of connectivity technology.
"Spectra7 continues to be at the leading edge of the most advanced audio and video signal processing technology enabling Monster to achieve new levels of pristine sound and unprecedented picture quality," said
Spectra7 added its Detectiv4K technology leverages the company's patented active signal processing algorithms and power harvesting to enable real-time, integrated, in-cable performance monitoring of the quality of content received by the display delivered from any source device including Blu-ray players, cable set-top boxes, satellite receivers, and gaming platforms.
"Our close alliance with Monster has enabled us to provide consumers with an unprecedented level of insight into their home entertainment systems to realize the ultimate Audio/Video experience," said Tony Stelliga, CEO of Spectra7. "The convergence of many new standards makes Detectiv4K an ideal technology when coupled with Monster's Cable for Life technology guarantee."
Monster is a company dedicated to creating products that enhance the sound quality of music.
