AVRev.com: AudioQuest is the first to reportedly figure out a way to field terminate HDMI cables effectively. If this technology proves generally applicable, it means that an installer will be able to pull raw HDMI through the walls and terminate it to an exact length.
Using their “Bayonet” connector, a crimper tool slices through the wire and pushes the attached V-pins through the wire, both cutting through the insulation and trimming the excess in one smooth motion.
This has several benefits for the average consumer. Firstly, the entire home theater, projector or other setup will look much cleaner, with fewer long wires exposed. Also, it makes it easier for homes to have HDMI pre-installed – meaning that the cables will be there but the connectors can be added at a later time.
