Description

Copper Cliff, Meet Lightspeed.

We compared a premium 5 ft 4K HDMI copper cable (right) vs a 5 ft. FīBBR Ultra Pro 4K HDMI fiber optic cable (left) using a static PS4 title page.  Fiber optic delivers better color depth, brightness, and contrast, a more faithful copy of the original signal. You can see in the pic below that the screen on the left has better color depth and uniformity whereas the image on the right is washed out and “attenuated”. This is the result of data loss, even though the picture is there, its not accurate. 

FīBBR’s Ultra Pro HDMI Fiber Optic cables are made with the highest-quality glass fiber, available exclusively from YOFC, the world’s largest fiber producer. All FIBBR cables feature proprietary BendRobust™ technology, an industry first that allows the fiber to be bent 180-degrees, to guarantee flexibility and durability in extreme conditions with uninterrupted transmission of signals.

FīBBR Ultra Pro HDMI Fiber Optic cables are slim and flexible, yet strong and extremely lightweight—60% lighter than traditional cabling. These key advantages are critical in protecting valuable connected hardware devices from potential harm caused by heavy cables putting undue stress on delicate connectors.

HDMI over fiber transmits audio and video data via light-waves, meaning they are one-directional. Copper stands are used for +5v power, EDID detection, and HDCP authentication, making the cable a “hybrid”.  FīBBR’s Ultra Pro HDMI Fiber Optic cables ensure trouble-free installation with clearly labeled Source and Display ends. A Smart LED indicator on the Source connector confirms proper connection and operation status, while a Flash LED on the Display connector provides lighting—always handy in super-dark spaces. Unlike fiber extender systems, Ultra Pro cables are self-powered for plug and play simplicity.

HDMI Fiber Optic Cables by FīBBR offer reliable high bandwidth, with extremely low signal attenuation, and high resistance to external electromagnetic interference.

How it Works

The opto-electronic converters inside the cable heads convert incoming electrical signal into optical on one end, and back into electrical on the other end. The Ultra Pro is a hybrid composed of fiber and copper cables. The copper cables are used for non-video information such as EDID, HDCP authentication, hot plug detection, grounding, and +5v power. The fiber strands carry all the video and audio content.

Better than copper

According to HDMI.org “The longest HDMI cable runs seen to date have been achieved using fiber-optic cable, which is far less susceptible to attenuation and interference than copper. Electrically it is similar to an active cable or Cat 5/6 solution, the principal difference being the higher-quality optical cabling between the transmit and receive connectors. HDMI over fiber is a highly robust solution, effective in cable runs up to 100 meters or more.”

Easier than any HDMI extender

Since the optical converters are housed inside the heads of the cable, there is no need for any external repeaters. This also means that there is no need for extra power adapters or patch cables.

The Ultra Pro eliminates possible points of failure. In a typical HDMI extender setup you have four HDMI connections (source to sender and receiver to display) plus two RJ45 connections, and two power connections from the baluns to the wall.

That’s eight possible things that can come unplugged, plugged in the wrong way, worn out over time or just need to be stuffed somewhere out of sight. With the Ultra Pro you only have one cable connected directly and can be easily verified end to end. Troubleshooting is incredibly easy compared to any other setup.

TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANTAGES

YOFC is the largest active optical cable provider in the world, and it’s subsidiary brand FīBBR is it’s first active optical cable brand in the consumer electronics category.

Over 50% of the staff are in the R&D department, over 80% of which have master’s or higher degrees, it gathers many excellent designers in electronics, optics, chip designing, hardware system, software, techniques,etc.

The FīBBR High-Bandwidth Fiber Optical Cable has the lowest bend radius, lowest attenuation, is thin, light, environmental-friendly, and flame-retardant. 

All its internal and external protective materials are environmental-friendly, halogen-free and RoHS/REACH compliant.while in burning, the materials generate almost zero corrosion, extremely low rate of toxicity, very little smoke and is not harmful to human body. Besides, it has remarkable performance in flame retarding, therefore satisfying the requirements (Plenum) of flame resistance in family housing wiring. Each FīBBR cable has to pass a test of a million times of dragging and dropping, and it can pass 500N of flattening pressure test.

    Mark Wexler, Concord Records, Jan 2018

    “I wanted to let you know that I put in the FIBBR Ultra Pro Optic HDMI throughout my A/V system and all I can say is “Wow”! I wasnt really expecting for these cable to make much of a difference but, I was wrong. I noticed an immediate impact in the color gamut and felt like any residual video noise was totally gone. There is a richness to the picture that was missing before and Im really glad I took your advice as it really does make a difference. Thanks for the turn on! Mark Wexler, Concord Records, Jan 2018

    “In terms of playback, the cable worked perfectly, successfully passing a 4K UHD HDR signal (Planet Earth II, 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray) from an OPPO UDP-205 Ultra HD Blu-ray player directly to a JVC RS520 projector (and, alternatively through a Marantz RS7012 AVR). The projector’s internal menu system confirmed it was receiving a 4K (3840p) signal with 12-Bit color. To the eye, the picture was exquisite, devoid of any visible issues; audio was pristine. Alternatively, the cable also successfully passed a 4K UHD Dolby Vision signal (Fate of the Furious, 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray) from an OPPO UDP-203 to an LG OLED B6 4K television. Again, picture perfect.” Todd Anderson, AV Nirvana Jan 2018

    “The picture is more realistic. This is the only thing that comes in mind. The flow of the image is more natural. The Colors are so real! And the sound, everything is clearer, I can follow the voices way better than before! The dynamics are awsome! They’re faster!
    I’m going to say it again, I AM so surprise! The quality of this FīBBR HDMI cable is unbelievable! ” Steeves, Montreal Jan 2018

    “I never expected that this HDMI cable would be better than my 1 meter $350.00 Wireworld cable! A BiG surprise! I did a listening session before the change only with music. After I swap the cable, everything was faster! The tone is rounder, the Soundstage is different but as wide as my Wireworld. What I mean is that the placement of instruments and vocals is different, more real I suppose. You were right there’s no graininess. Its ultra smooth. First impression is : I love it! The bass us faster, more rhythmic, clearer and like You said, more precise! I AM very surprised! I mean VERY surprised! So happy for my choice!” Steeves, Montreal, Canada Jan 2018

    Robert Archer, CEPro August 2017

    “Watching an HBO broadcast of The Dark Knight was eye opening. It was surprising to see the amount of color detail, resolution and contrast the cable seemed to capture or maintain. It beckons the question, how much image quality would be lost with traditional copper HDMI cables? Robert Archer, CEPro August 2017

    Scott Wilkinson, AVSForums, Sept 2017

    “The Fibbr Ultra Pro fiber-optic HDMI cable can reliably convey 4K/UHD HDR signals up to 200 meters…. if your 4K/UHD HDR source and display are separated by more than a couple of meters, most copper cables are iffy at best. The Fibbr Ultra Pro is an elegant solution to a vexing problem in the brave new video world.” Scott Wilkinson, AVSForums, Sept 2017
