Metra Home Theater Group Announces Velox Fiber Cable
Long Distance, High-Speed 4K a Reality with 330 Ft. HDMI Fiber
HOLLY HILL, Fla. – September 6, 2016 – Metra Home Theater Group, a leading provider of home theater products and accessories for the integration community, announces the Velox HDMI Fiber System for long distance, high-speed, 4K transmission up to 100 meters.
The Velox HDMI Fiber System, available in various lengths ranging from 20 to 100 meters, allows integrators to efficiently install the latest 4K technology in traditional home theater configurations. Existing cables with baluns utilized in conjunction with CAT5, CAT6 or coax cables to achieve the distance needed to connect A/V racks to home theater displays does not support new 4K/HDR technology. The latest 4K technology requires bandwidth of 18 Gbps, making the Velox HDMI Fiber System the only option for long-distance transmission. The Velox HDMI Fiber System features a smooth, almost linear bandwidth, with a robust 18Gbps output.
“The new Velox HDMI Fiber System is going to make long 4K runs so simple for integrators,” said Jessy Crabb, general manager of Metra Home Theater Group. “These robust and reliable cables allow integrators to transmit over super-long distances without having to compromise 4K and high-def resolutions. Integrators can see the new Velox HDMI Fiber System in action at CEDIA 2016 as we’ll be displaying two televisions playing the same movie in-sync, one in regular HD and the other with 4K utilizing this new product. The difference is significant.”
The Velox HDMI Fiber System cables use HDMI 2.0 specifications with 4K high-speed and resolutions up to 4K2K@60. All color subsampling is supported, including 4:4:4, 4:2:2 and 4:2:0, deep color, and HDR, allowing full-range 4K specs to be supported. The Velox HDMI Fiber System corrects the sync and source irregularities by providing sync interpretation for EDID and HDCP. The Velox HDMI Fiber System is HDMI 2.0a and HDCP 2.2 compliant and feature bandwidth ranges up to 18Gbps.
Metra Home Theater Group will showcase the new Velox HDMI Fiber System, along with its entire product lineup, at CEDIA 2016 in Booth #3005, held September 15th– 17th, 2016, in Dallas, Texas.
