Lightware USB-C Cables

The cables are compatible with all major operating systems and support USB 3 Gen2 10 Gbps “SuperSpeed,” making them ideal for high-speed data transfer use cases such as 4K webcam use and transfer to and from SSD storage. They come equipped with a Screw Lock USB-C plug that ensures a secure connection to the Lightware’s Taurus UCX universal matrix switcher and prevents accidental disconnections during operation. Both cables also feature a 2-lane DisplayPort 1.4 Alt Mode that supports high-resolution video output up to 4K30 Hz@HBR2 and offer a minimum 60W/3A charging capacity that allows for fast charging of laptops, tablets, and phones. The cables are equipped with eMarker chip, which records data speed and highest amperage.

Lightware’s 1- to 5-meter full-featured USB-C cables meet all five of the criteria the company has established for ensuring top-of-the-range connectivity, namely USB 2.0 enumeration, USB 3.x enumeration, power delivery, DisplayPort Alt mode, and Ethernet support.
