Vanco International LLC has announced two new lines of Ultra High Speed HDMI Cables with Ethernet, providing uncompressed feature support for the HDMI 2.1 specification.
As 4K becomes the new norm and 8K is breaking through, the HDMI 2.1 specification is becoming increasingly desirable to integrators in both the residential and commercial AV markets. Vanco’s new HD8K and PROHD8K Ultra High Speed HDMI Cables with Ethernet are backwards compatible and address the needs of today’s 8K installations and beyond.
Both series offer an uncompressed bandwidth of 48 Gbps and support resolutions up to 10K, plus 8K@60 Hz, 4:4:4 Chroma, and 4K@120 Hz. Transmission of High Dynamic Range (HDR) video is also possible with the new cables, as is support for the wide angle theatrical 21:9 video aspect ratio.
From an audio perspective, the new cables feature enhanced Audio Return Channel (eARC) for simplified connectivity, providing integrators with high quality audio for up to 32 channels. HD audio formats such as DTS Master, DTS:X, Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Atmos, and more are also made possible with the new cables.
The Ultra High Speed cables have been EMI tested to ensure minimal interference with wireless signals. Ideal for gaming, the Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) reduces and eliminates lag, stutter, and frame tearing for more fluid and better detailed gameplay. The Quick Frame Transport (QFT) reduces latency for smoother no-lag gaming, and real-time interactive virtual reality. The Quick Media Switching (QMS) feature for movies and other video content eliminates the delay that sometimes results in a blank screen before content is displayed, and the Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM) allows for an automatic setting for smooth, lag-free, and uninterrupted viewing and interactivity.
Vanco’s HD8K and PROHD8K Ultra High Speed HDMI Cables with Ethernet will begin shipping late May 2019 and will be available in 1-, 3-, and 6-foot lengths with both PVC and premium metal connectors. Interested distributors can contact Vanco International directly for pricing and to pre-order now.
