DPL Certified, high-end Passive HDMI Cable transports data up to 8 meters
HOLLY HILL, Fla. – September 12, 2016 – Metra Home Theater Group, a leading provider of home theater products and accessories, announces their new Velox Passive HDMI Cables, providing integrators with a reliable, high-end cable for transmitting 18 Gbps data for 8 meters’ standalone and up to 21 meters with the HDM-GA1. Metra Home Theater Group will display the new cables in their booth (#3005) during CEDIA 2016 in Dallas, Texas from September 15th to 17th, 2016.
The new Velox Passive HDMI Cable from Metra Home Theater is available in various lengths, and provides custom integrators with reliable digital transmission technology for almost any project size. Through a new proprietary design, Metra Home Theater’s product team has incorporated In-Visions Technology Quiksilver Transmission Line™ into the high performance Passive HDMI Cable for integrators wanting the best for their clients. Supporting 18 Gbps, 4K/60, 4:4:4 and HDR transmission for 8 meters, the Velox Passive HDMI Cable removes the potential future speed cap created by integrated electronics that are in active cables.

“Many of our dealers have expressed interest in a high quality passive HDMI cable, which led us to design our new Velox Passive HDMI Cable,” said Jessy Crabb, general manager of Metra Home Theater Group. “.
