The What: FSR has expanded its Digital Ribbon (DR) cable family by adding multiple Aramid reinforcing cords to the cable assembly. The result is that the pull-strength specification of the cable has been increased to 40 lbs. from the previous 20 lb. rating.
The What Else: Most other cables on the market are only rated for a 20 lb. pull, which is fairly easy to exceed during installation. This improvement in the basic cable construction, which has been in production for several months, makes the DR cable family the most robust optical HDMI cable on the market. The improved DR cables are available in lengths of 10m, 15m, 23m, 30m, and 50m.
The How: The cables utilize a proprietary technology to allow high-speed, high-definition HDMI signal transmission over distances of up to 325 ft. at a speed of 10.2 Gb/sec video bandwidth and can easily handle 1080p HD, 3D, deep color, HDMI-CEC, HDCP and most newer hi-res formats. The more robust DR cable is now shipping.
The Why: “We are always looking for ways to improve our product lines and offer our customers the best solutions on the market today,” said Jan Sandri, FSR president. “We are thrilled that by using Aramid, the fiber used in body armor, we are strengthening an already durable and sturdy product line and are now able to offer our customers an even more robust family of DR cables.”
