The premium HDMI cable for all occasions!

The list of standards that high-tech devices such as Ultra-HD TVs, Blu-ray and Ultra-HD Blu-ray players, 4k monitors, beamers and AV receivers must meet is getting longer and longer. Just like the face of many an irritated consumer who quickly gets lost in a jungle of data and abbreviations.

HDMI itself has long been an old hat! The High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI), developed in 2002, has long been regarded as the standard format and seal of quality for pure transmission of image and sound. High-resolution formats such as Full- or Ultra-HD are transported piggy-back with audio data, so to speak. The copy protection HDCP (High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection) is included free of charge.

What used to be the Scart socket is now the HDMI input or output on the rear of the device. Flat screens, DVBT-2 receivers, Blu-ray players, AV receivers, monitors or even cameras, smartphones, tablets and multimedia players communicate perfectly with each other in a simple way.

But it came as it had to: already two years after HDMI 1.0 HDMI 1.1 followed and in equally short intervals the versions 1.2, 1.2a, 1.3 and 1.4. With the version 1.4a the home cinema could be "pimped" to 3D. As Klaus Burosch explains in his book on media technology, HDMI-2.0 was presented at the 2013 International Consumer Electronics Fair, which now plays a significant role in the beginning ultra-HD age.

It began with the transmission of 4.95 Gbits per second. Version 1.3 achieved 10.2 Gbits, now 18 Gbits are announced and the HDMI 2.0 standard allows up to 32 audio channels. Thanks to the new technology, the visual color spectrum could be increased by up to 80 percent. Ideal for four times higher than Full HD screens. It's all first-class, isn't it? Just buy the right cable and enjoy! But first find "the right thing"! In the recent past it has happened more and more often that manufacturers tricked and promised far more than their products could actually afford. Noble packaging and gold plated plugs as well as the inscription "High Speed HDMI" often deceived about the partly poor inner life of the stripping. It became critical at the latest from cable lengths of three to five meters. It got so far that a licensing office had to be created for all HDMI specifications (HDMI Licensing, LLC), which adopted a new test procedure for the certification of HDMI cables.

In the search for tested quality, the consumer now finds it easier to choose quickly and safely with the "Premium Certified Cable" seal. Unfortunately, bad traps can still be set. Because there are no obligations for cable manufacturers to have their products tested. Every inferior plastic strip can continue to boast imaginative logos, the best quality and full UHD support. The bona fide buyer of such electronic hazardous waste can immediately adjust to turbulent times. If the picture of the brand new Ultra HD television jolts for inexplicable reasons, if sound interruptions occur at unsightly regular intervals or even if the flat screen suddenly turns black for seconds, it is advisable to keep calm and not to immediately look for the errors in the TV or player or to insist on the replacement or repair of the allegedly defective part. It's better to try out a really flawless HDMI cable first. This is where our cable comes into play, an HDMI 2.0 cable developed "which is also and especially intended for 4K televisions and transmits at 60Hz". Unlike many competitors, who already meet the HDMI 2.0 standard by transmitting 4K at only 30Hz, we are well prepared for the future. Exactly this was tested by a German test laboratory with different input sources as well as 4K-TVs of different manufacturers as output devices.

Excerpt from the test report: "Even the most difficult signals were reliably transmitted in continuous operation". The high-speed HDMI cable is equipped with Ethernet technology. This opens up new perspectives for connecting Internet-capable components directly and using Internet connections with different devices without connecting them via an additional network cable.
