Wireworld Cable Technology, one of the world’s most respected brands of high-performance audio and video cables, announces the release of the Stellar Fiber Optic HDMI cable. These extended-range cables utilize the highest quality laser modules and driver chips to improve image quality and provide long term reliability, while supporting the 48Gbps data rate required for next generation video applications.
The next generation 8K/120 video standard of HDMI2.1 has created the requirement for cables that support the extreme data rate of 48 Gigabits per second. Conventional copper HDMI cables are only able to support 48Gbps signals over lengths of a few meters. Fiber optics are required to support 48Gbps over the long lengths used in many home theater installations. While optical cables for the previous HDMI generations have been around for years, they have the reputation of being less reliable than copper cables. Of course, that is understandable because they contain complex electronics and lasers in addition to conductors. That’s why it pays to buy an optical cable made with the best available parts and materials.
Wireworld’s goal for Stellar, was to create a fiber optic HDMI cable that provides both state-of-the-art performance and extreme reliability. To accomplish that goal, Stellar utilizes world-class parts, materials and construction techniques. Stellar’s laser modules are made by the American company II-VI, a leading supplier of laser devices for the most demanding applications. Likewise, the driver chipset is produced by the German company, Silicon-Line, a leader in microchip technology. The cable’s four optical fibers are of the superior OM3 laser-optimized grade. The cable structure features double-thickness shields and several high strength Kevlar fiber bundles for increased durability and freedom from interference. With these world-class components, materials and structure, Stellar provides enhanced performance and superior long-term value.
Stellar supports all HDMI2.1 features and capabilities, including HDR10+, HDCP2.3, Ethernet, Enhanced ARC, Deep Color, etc. To ease installation, the durable die-cast zinc plugs feature the extremely narrow width of 18mm/0.7″, so they can be pulled through common size electrical conduit. Stellar is also UL-CMP/FT6 plenum rated for residential and commercial installations.
Stellar HDMI – $450/5m, $500/10m, $550/15m, $600/20m, $700/30m
