Wyrestorm CAB-HOAC-30_Cable_02

WyreStorm has released a line of active optical HDMI cables for the delivery of uncompressed full bandwidth 4K UHD with HDR content.

The optical cables offer a step up from Wyrestorm’s existing Express line of standard copper HDMI cables. The CAB-HAOC-20 and CAB-HAOC-30 active optical HDMI cables enable the uncompressed transmission of 18 Gbps HDMI content up to 20m or 30m respectively, supporting full bandwidth 4K 60Hz at 4:4:4 8-bit and HDR 12-bit at 4:2:2 with HDCP 2.2 ensuring compatibility with 4K UHD content.

The 20m and 30m lengths ship ready-spooled. The 20mm cable head is constructed in solid alloy with gold-plated connectors. 

WyreStorm has colour-coded and labelled each end of the cable with space on connectors to write source or zone details. CAB-HAOC cables support ARC and CEC control.  

CAB-HAOC cables are suited for use with an HDMI matrix for full bandwidth 18Gbps source switching of uncompressed 4K 60Hz content in a commercial environment. For residential projects where 4K HDR@60Hz is too high for HDBaseT, the CAB-HAOC offers an option for zones within a 30m range, with HDCP 2.2, Dolby Atmos and DTS:X support.
