HDMI 1.4 compatible devices are right around the corner, and the new capabilities are intriguing.  3D, 4K, and Ethernet over HDMI mean that the new standard may actually be something worth looking forward to.  Wireworld is looking forward as well, with the addition of their new flagship HDMI cable.

The Platinum Starlight HDMI cable sports a huge array of exciting sounding things like the company’s new 24-conductor DNA Helix design, solid silver conductors, and molded carbon fiber connectors.  It even exceeds HDMI 1.4 specifications for Ethernet speed with a transfer rate of 21Gbits/second.  It’s priced at $1,000 for a one meter cable.

Wireworld President David Salz speaks to the need for extremely high end cables for digital transmission, saying that “Now that Blu-Ray players are the primary source for both movies and music in home theater systems, the HDMI cable connecting the player to the system has become the most important audio cable in the entire system.  The Platinum Starlight HDMI cable addresses the need to provide the highest possible audio and video fidelity in high end home theater installations.”

The cable will be available in sizes from 0.3m all the way up to 30 meters, though the latter may cost more than the system you’re hooking it up to.
