March 2017 – Kilmarnock – Atlas Cables, the engineering-led cable specialist, has introduced the latest addition to its HDMI cable range – the Hyper 4K Wideband HDMI. Building upon the success of its 1st generation Atlas Equator (active) and Element (passive) High speed with Ethernet HDMI, Atlas has introduced this new model that delivers the full bandwidth requirements of the latest HDMI specification for Ultra UHD with a bandwidth of 18Gbps over extended lengths up to 15m.
Available now, prices range from £165.00 for 7m.
The new Hyper Wideband 4K HDMI has been designed from the bottom up, delivering industry leading digital bandwidth to allow the full unimpeded 18Gbps signal capability of the new HDMI 2.0 specification to be delivered with ease.
Each critical TMDS (Transition Minimized Differential Signalling) twisted data pair is produced from high purity 24awg OFC conductors encased within super rigid and geometrically stable Polyethylene dielectric. Each critical pair is individually shielded within a 100% Mylar copper screen before a secondary shielding layer is further enhanced via a copper outer screen. The combination of precision twisting and critical shielding cancels out the worst effect of inductive and capacitive coupling within the cable. This balanced shielding approach also delivers exceptional EMC (Electro-Magnetic Compatibility) performance.
The termination of the data/clock pairs is critical to deliver consistently the wide bandwidth required by the HDMI 2.0 (4k) specification, and in this respect the Hyper clears all barriers. Selecting only those cables that measurably pass the tightest characteristic impedance termination control, ensures that the Hyper 4k wideband HDMI can easily deliver the required bandwidth over extended distances, without any damaging cable reflections that could introduce damaging jitter into the system.
Following on from Atlas’ extensive experience gained with the Element and Equator high speed with Ethernet HDMI families, the company has utilised a mixed technology base for the Hyper family; the7m being an all passive design, whilst the 10m, 12m and 15m feature an adaptive low noise Active electronic design. All cables are directional, with ‘Display’ written on the connector that plugs into the display.
The Atlas Cables Hyper 4K Wideband HDMI cable is designed specifically to pass the most exacting bandwidth requirements of the new HDMI 2.0 specification;
- Resolutions up to 3840×2160
- Frame rates of 60Hz
- Colour depth of HDR requirements (12 bits)
- Uncompressed Chromasub sampling of (4:4:4)3840 x 2160 x 60hz x 12bits x 3 channels = 17.915,904Gb/sec
- The Hyper 4K Wideband HDMI is designed to deliver point to point data delivery integrity.
