HDMI Copper vs. Fiber; The Need For Speed in the 4K Era

I have exciting news to share about a new line of HDMI fiber optic cables…

View

FīBBR Tech HDMI v2.0b Ultra Pro Active Fiber Optical Cables

Introducing the World’s Best HDMI Cables.  

Award-Winning, ISF Certified HDMI v2.0b Active Fiber Optical Cables by FīBBR.  5 ft. Starting at $139.99.

With the emergence of 4K, HDR / Dolby Vision, Wide Color Gamut, and native LPCM 24/96K hi res audio, the amount of data conveyed over HDMI has increased dramatically, 3 times more than 1080p.  If you’re adopting 4K, then it’s time for a new HDMI cable technology to meet the speed challenge of 18 Gbps. Nothing beats the speed of light.

One solution is to convert HDMI signals into light waves and send them through glass fiber-optic cables. The Fībbr Ultra Pro is ISF-certified to reliably carry uncompressed, native 4K content at 18 Gbps up to 165 ft (50m) without loss or interference.. Copper cables lose data along the way and pick up EMI from all our wireless devices, regardless of the length. The result is increased color detail, resolution, and contrast.  Its the best way to optimize the 4K viewing experience.

Featuring:

  • HDMI v2.0b for UltraHD 4K
  • Supports HDR10, Dolby Vision, and WCG
  • Supports HDCP v2.2, EDID, CEC, ARC
  • Supports Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD Master Audio, Atmos,
  • High Bandwidth, No Delay,  Zero Attenuation
  • 4:4:4 4K@60Hz
  • 5′ to 165′ (1.5m to 50m)
  • Plug & Play Simplicity
  • Cable Diameter: 4.6mm
  • Jacket: PET single-silk weave
  • Material: 4-core optical fiber cable
  • Bandwidth: 18Gbps
  • Shell: Black PC material
  • Plenum Rated
  • No external power supply needed
  • CE, RoHS, FCC, and REACH Compliant

Note: Free shipping in the USA.  Orders shipped outside the USA should be placed on this online orderform, we’ll add the shipping and send you a PayPal invoice.

Acoustic Energy AEGO Sound3ar / Subwoofer Speaker System

Acoustic Energy, one of the UKs premier hi-fi brands with over 30 years’ experience in British audio, presents the Aego Sound3ar into the home computing market.

While many consumers would associate a Soundbar with improving the sound of their TV, Acoustic Energy has developed the Aego Sound3ar to improve the sound from your Mac. Designed to perfectly match the styling and finish of a Mac, it also fits neatly beneath the screen taking up less valuable desktop space than many traditional 2.1 computer speakers, yet still filing your room with high quality audio from streamed or stored music / cinema sources.

It’s simple to set up, easy to use and delivers good audio fidelity that will deliver in most people’s homes.” Robert Jones, T3 Nov 2016[/caption]
