Accell is a cable and A/V switching company that bombards us with every new thing that the company puts out - and they put out a lot of products. This week, the company got our attention with a new type of HDMI cable designed to prevent the cables from falling out - a common issue with HDMI, particularly with heavier gauge cables. We've looked at locking HDMI cables before - and they really make sense. The new cable is called the AVGrip Pro Locking High Speed HDMI Cable. It's available in nearly any length imaginable - provided your imagination stops at 3 feet. While it's particularly suited for rack mount installations, the 3-foot limitation leaves us wanting more... more options.

Accell’s new AVGrip Pro Locking High Speed HDMI Cable is ATC certified, unlike many locking-HDMI solutions that use different form factors and other methods which aren't approved by HDMI Licensing. And Accell's cables are typically pretty decent, featuring 100% foil shields and a high-density metal braid to reject em (electromagnetic) and RF (radio frequency) interference. And the jackets are slick too - literally. Dubbed "UltraFlex" they provide protection and are also easy to pull. Of course, since they only cmoe in 3-foot lengths, you won't be pulling them too far. Accell also sells these in 1-foot lengths, making them perfect for interconnecting gear in equipment racks - for which these cables are specifically designed (Accell makes longer HDMI cables in other form factors for those of us who need distance.)
