“We are extremely excited to unveil our first ever plenum-rated HDMI cables,” says Jonathon Ferry, national training manager for Key Digital. “This release is representative of Key Digital’s growth in commercial new-construction audio visual projects. The flame retardant and low smoke characteristic cables are UL approved for installation in plenum spaces. These features and certifications go hand-in-hand with the plenum AOCH cable series, which allow AV integrators to extend HDMI 4K/18G signals at an unprecedented length up to 328 feet or 100 meters.”

The active optical copper hybrid cable series offers the latest in 4K resolutions with Ultra HD/4K support up to 4096×2160 or 3840×2160 50/60Hz at 4:4:4 with 18 Gbps bandwidth high speed performance for the latest HDMI video specifications.
