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.

Description

Dare To Compare Challenge

In our blind AB tests comparing a 5 ft 4K HDMI copper cable (on the right) vs a 5 ft. FīBBR Ultra Pro 4K HDMI fiber optic cable (on the left), 10 out of every 10 consumers chose the fiber optic as the superior connection.  Fiber optic delivers better color depth, brightness, and contrast, a more faithful copy of the original signal. You can see in the pic above that the screen on the left is delivering the actual content whereas the image on the right is washed out and missing the tail of light at the bottom completely. This is the result of data loss, even though the picture is there, its not accurate. Nothing beats the speed of light.

 

FīBBR’s Ultra Pro HDMI AOC (Active Optical Cables) cables are made with the highest-quality glass fiber, available exclusively from YOFC, the world’s largest fiber producer. They feature proprietary BendRobust™ technology, which provides the ultimate bend radius capability—a bend diameter of less than 2mm—to offer incredible installation flexibility and ensure uninterrupted transmission of signals.

FīBBR Ultra Pro HDMI AOCs 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.

Because HDMI AOCs transmit data via light, they are single-directional. Copper stands are used for +5v power, EDID detection, and HDCP authentication.  FīBBR’s Ultra Pro HDMI AOCs 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.

HDMI AOCs 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 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

Everpro (Wuhan) is the largest USB/HDMI active optical cable provider in the world, and it’s subsiduary 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 Optical Cable has the lowest bend radius, low in attenuation, thin, light, environmental-friendly, and flame-retarding.

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.

  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    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

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    Stuart Yaoming, Aug 2017

    “With VIA’s powerful electro-optic / opto-electronic conversion technology, YOFC’s specialty optical fiber blessing, Fibbr’s Ultra Pro series optical HDMI cable has a very low delay, almost zero attenuation, at the same time has a light, soft body. Easy to install and easy to use and easy to resist all kinds of electromagnetic interference, etc., is definitely the solution to solve 4K, HDR, long-distance transmission of choice” Stuart Yaoming, Aug 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

  4. Rated 5 out of 5

    Joel Silver, Imaging Science Foundation, Aug 2017

    “The true cost of this next wave of video media innovation is bandwidth. FiBBR Tech is visually superior to anything we’ve had previously, with color-rich images and stunning clarity”. Joel Silver, Imaging Science Foundation, Aug 2017
