These HDMI 2.0a-compliant premium cables incorporate PrimePass, a rigorous testing and certification process that will guarantee transmission reliability of Ultra HD content between devices, according to the company. The Platinum 4K Ultra HD HDMI 2.0a PrimePass Cable is available in multiple lengths starting at $59 retail. DVDO’s Platinum cables enable installers and consumers to future-proof their home theater installations. The PrimePass certification will provide peace of mind that upgrades to HDMI 2.0a equipment will be stable and reliable despite the higher bandwidth requirements. These cables combine extreme shielding techniques, large diameter individual wires, and new methods of separating individual signals within the cable to provide the highest performance with full HDMI 2.0a compatibility up to 4K/60 4:4:4. “Not all high-speed HDMI cables will carry the latest 4K/60 resolution at 600 MHz, resulting in loss of color depth, sparkles, or no connection at all when the source or display is upgraded to HDMI 2.0a,” said Doug Fealtman, general manager at DVDO. “Our Platinum cables are a must-have accessory for home theater installations. Even if you are just using 1080p now, these cables ensure that when you do upgrade to UHD and HDR, you won’t have to upgrade your cables again.” SubscribeFor more stories like this, and to keep up to date with all our market leading news, features and analysis, sign up to our newsletter here.
