Fiber-optic HDMI cable Quantum unveiled by FIBBR. New fiber-optic HDMI cable provides blistering 8K speeds at previously unheard-of consumer pricing.
NEW YORK, Jan. 1, 2022 – The new Quantum fiber-optic HDMI cable from FIBRR (pronounced “fiber”), a world-leading maker of high-end audio and video cables, has been added to the company’s product line. The new connection can transmit data at up to 48 gigabits per second, which is the greatest speed supported by the new HDMI 2.1 standard. That is fast enough to send 8K/60Hz or 4K/120Hz video as well as sophisticated audio via a single, thin wire.
Fiber-optic cables provide numerous advantages over copper cables, particularly in long cable lines. Copper connections longer than 10 feet or so can struggle to transfer data from point A to point B at such high bitrates. Fiber-optic cables, on the other hand, are immune to this problem; they can be stretched to almost any length without losing the signal. They are also impervious to electrical interference, so there is no need for cumbersome shielding.
How do they work? The transmitting end converts electrical signals into pulses of light, which travel along the fiber-optic cable and are converted back into electrical signals at the receiving end. This “light into copper” process is bound to become the standard means of conveying 8K video reliably between devices.
Until previously, the only issue with fiber-optic HDMI cables was their expensive price. FIBBR Quantum breaks the price barrier, allowing a much larger number of people to participate in the fiber revolution. A 2-meter/6.56-foot cable costs only $21, while a massive 20-meter/65.6-foot wire costs only $60. That is a fraction of the price of most fiber-optic HDMI cables.
FIBBR Quantum complies with all of the HDMI 2.1 specifications. Although it is an entry-level product, it promises to provide amazing 8K performance to the masses at affordable costs.
Founded in 2015, FIBBR is the global high-end audio and video signal-connection brand of EverPro Technologies Co., Ltd. The company offers a wide range of data-transmission products for many different interfaces, and its cables are sold all over the world.
