Wisconsin-based TechLogix Networx is helping to enable real-world 8K HDMI installations with the launch of its MOFO HD21 Series fiber-based cables, which are now available.
“8K pushes the limit of copper-based technology,” explains Cameron Smith, co-founder of TechLogix. “Uncompressed 8K HDMI requires up to 48G bandwidth, and traditional HDMI cables and twisted pair extenders simply experience too much loss and interference over distance for reliable, native signal transmission. Fiber eliminates these issues.”
TechLogix MOFO HD21 Series cables feature a true fiber-optic core for interference-free, uncompressed 8K HDMI signal transmission up to 30m without the need for in-line boosters or power supplies. Plus, the fiber core can be spliced and re-terminated with standard fiber-optic tools and connectors. A MOFO cable used for HDMI today can be re-purposed for network, control, or other audio/video formats tomorrow.
To further validate performance, TechLogix received HDMI 2.1 certification from the HDMI.org Forum and HDMI Licensing Administrator, guaranteeing HD21 Series cables support the entire 8K specification, including 48G 8K60 Dynamic HDR, HDCP 2.2, 3D, Deep Color, VRR, QMS, QFT, ALLM, DSC, Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD Master Audio, ARC, and eARC.
The fiber core inside TechLogix MOFO cables also improves durability and handling. HD21 Series cables support a 70-pound pull-rating and 1.8-inch minimum bend-rating, and the plenum-rated jacket accommodates in-wall installation or in conduit larger than one inch in diameter.
