Wireworld-Active-HDMI.jpgWireworld has announced a new line of active HDMI cables designed to support the transmission of a full 4K/60p UHD signal with HDR over longer runs. These new 18Gbps-rated cables use Wireworld's patented conductor geometry and sport the same flat design as many of the company's other HDMI offerings. The line will include six performance levels in lengths from one to 65 feet.

From Wireworld
Wireworld Cable Technology announces the development of long length cables that support the full 18Gbps speed of HDMI2.0. These cables feature a new generation of active technology that provides compatibility with the new HDMI2.0 features, including HDCP2.2 and HDR video. This updated cable line includes six performance levels and lengths ranging from 1 foot to 65 feet.

"HDMI2.0 can make fantastic improvements in video quality, but the new capabilities require more data than you can get through 10.2 gigabit rated HDMI cables," comments Wireworld's David Salz, "Our new long cables surpass the new 18 gigabit requirement to ensure compatibility and maximize performance."

Wireworld HDMI cables are already well known for their flat profile, as well as their patented and proprietary conductor geometry that enables some models to provide full 18Gbps performance at lengths of up to 7 meters without an active circuit. That parameter reflects the speed advantage of the patented DNA Helix design, which is about 20 percent faster than the conventional design used by other brands. Combining these upgraded designs with the new state-of-the-art active technology creates even higher levels of performance.
