BTX introduces fibre-based ultra-long HDMI cables

BTX Technologies, a value-added distributor and manufacturer of video signal processing products, announced today that they are introducing HDMI cables for ultra-high definition video applications in a variety of lengths from 5m to 100m.

These new fibre-based assemblies are lightweight and perfect for tight spaces, floor boxes and where traditional transmitters and receivers can’t be used because of power or EDID issues. They support high definition (1080p) and ultra-high definition (4K) video, deep color (48-bit), 3D and multi-channel digital audio on a single cable.

Utilising fibre optics, these plenum-rated cables provide full signal integrity over the distance of the cable and future-proof bandwidth for the next generation of video displays.

The cable assemblies are available now.
