4K has established itself as the norm, but 8K is breathing down its neck. Cabling needs to keep pace with the constant boost of resolution. Vanco International is ensuring that the cabling installed today will be able to handle 4K, 8K or something even higher with the release of two new lines of Ultra High Speed HDMI Cables with Ethernet.
Vanco claims the two cable lines provide uncompressed support for the HDMI 2.1 specification.
“Vanco is renowned for its long history of being first to market with the latest and most innovative cable technology, starting with the release of our original HDMI cables back in 2004” says Vanco International president, Mark Corbin.
“With the launch of our latest Ultra High Speed HDMI Cables with Ethernet, we are once again ahead of the curve, providing our distributors and dealers with some of the first solutions that support resolutions up to 10K.”
Ultra High Speed Cables Support eARC, Dolby Atmos
Both the HD8K and PROHD8K line of cables offer uncompressed bandwidth of 48 Gbps, according to the company, and support resolutions up to 10K, plus 8K@60Hz, 4:4:4 Chroma, and 4K@120Hz. The cables also support High Dynamic Range (HDR) video and wide angle 21:9 video aspect ratio.
For gaming enthusiasts, the HD8K and PROHD8K deliver a punch by supporting Variable Refresh Rate to reduce and eliminate lag, stutter, and frame tearing.
Quick Frame Transport (QFT) reduces latency for better experiences with virtual reality. Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM) allows for an automatic setting for lag-free and uninterrupted viewing and interactivity.
The 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.
