HDMI is the short form for High Definition Multimedia Interface. We use this cable to get high-definition audio and video for our television or any other device. So this is a really important thing and almost every house with a TV set has it. There are many brands selling this cable. Today we will talk about an 8K ultra high-speed HDMI cable by KabelDirect, as claimed by the HDMI licensing administrator which is the organization responsible for licensing and testing all these HDMI cables and approving of them. Let us dive into the video and get on with knowing the cable better.
The length of the cable is 0.5 to 4 meters. The cable is quite thick. You need to plug one end of the cable into an 8k in port and the other end into an 8k out port. Then you can ask the receiver to start the testing with the cable. They will send a signal that is rated up to 48 gigabits per second through the cable to see if it received the signal or not. the maximum resolution it provides is 8k/60Hz and 4k/120Hz. It has a tamper-proof certificate from the licensing administrator. The colors in which this cable is available are, black, blue, and silver. This cable is ideal for the latest new generation devices like RTX 6000/Geforce RTX 3000 series, PlayStation 5, Xbox series X/S, and 4k and 8k televisions. This cable allows 48 Gbps ultra HD-II resolutions such as 76804320 (8k) or 102404320 (10k), 3D video, 48-bit colors, and functions such as dynamic HDR/HDR10+, VRR, ALLM, HFR, and eARC (Dolby Atoms/DTS:X). this certified cable fulfills the quality specifications of the 2.1 standards. Only licensed and certified cables can give assurance to support all HDMI 2.1 functions. Other HDMI standards like 2.0 and 1.4 are fully compatible with this cable. The amount of data transmitted by HDMI 2.1 cables of the ultra high-speed class is 48 gigabits per second. This speed makes it 167% faster than the older high-speed cables which could only provide 18 gigabits per second. This extensive bandwidth has been made possible by high-purity copper lines, strong shielding made of tinned copper, and extremely low manufacturing tolerances. With this huge data rate, this HDMI ultra-high-speed cable not only transmits videos of 4k resolution at 120 Hertz but also images of 8k resolution for bigger televisions. Even a 10k resolution with 10,240*4,320 pixels is possible. But the screens suitable for this resolution are not out there in the market yet. The standard 2.1 cable enables not only vivid and more detailed images but also conducts a lot of improvements for home cinema or gaming. It gives us functions like Dynamic HDR, VRR, or eARC. HDR is the short form for High Dynamic Range. The previous HDR technology provided features like high contrasts, for example, differences in brightness. In this feature brightly lit areas of an image stand out more clearly. What more is required of this feature is, static with HDR films, meaning that it must be identical for the entire length of a film. The dynamic HDR technology of HDMI standard 2.1 is able to handle strong fluctuations in brightness. Because of this additional setting, the contrast information is adjusted separately for each screen, or even for every single image of every frame. The picture looks more lifelike. The auto-low latency mode of this cable puts the television on gaming mode. This is more suited for gamers. The variable refresh rate mode synchronizes the frame rate of a television with the output signal of a gaming PC.
If you are looking for a new cable for your television, you can definitely go for it. The price is also a lot cheaper for a product so versatile. It gives you comprehensive compatibility with different devices. And also it gives very good performance and quality. The cable undergoes a lot of tests before it is ready for sale.
