No-compromise HDMI 2.0a and DisplayPort 1.4 connections: new AOC cables from Sommer cable
Glass fiber hybrid lines for a robust transmission of AV signals over long distances
Sommer cable is presenting their latest highlight: the innovative AOC cables for the long-distance transmission of AV signals via HDMI 2.0a and DisplayPort 1.4. Thereby the manufacturer of professional cable and connection technology once more demonstrates his technological competence.
Particularly in the fields of live entertainment and installation the new active cables will meet the highest demands: the HDMI 2.0a version achieves 18 Gbit/s of bandwidth and the DisplayPort 1.4 variant even 25 Gbit/s. This makes them superior to copper cables, especially when using a passive connection, and also other active solutions and extender systems. Because in the new AOC glass fiber hybrid lines the required electronics is already built into the connector shell. This facilitates the handling in the professional area and, due to their compact size and the waiver of a separate power supply, makes installation easier as well. Moreover, they convince by a high flexibility and break resistance.
No matter if 4K resolution at 60 Hz with a 4:4:4 scan or HDR 10 – the new AOC cables support the most recent standards including the HDCP 2.2 copy protection. As of now the HDMI 2.0a variant is available in lengths of up to 100 m [328 ft.], the DisplayPort 1.4 in lengths of up to 50 m [164 ft.].
