The What: Snap One is launching a line of Binary BX 8K active HDMI cables, which are designed to support 8K UHD at 60 Hz 4:2:0 and up to 10K at 30 Hz 4:4:4. They also display 4K at 120 Hz and 60 Hz 4:4:4 and handle transmission speeds up to 48 Gbps.
The What Else: With zinc alloy connector heads, superior pull and bend strength, and GripTek connectors, the Binary HDMI cables feature a premium design that delivers reliable 4K and 8K performance.
Without the need for external power, the active cables create a simpler and cleaner install. The incorporated gripping design ensures up to 8 pounds of pull force is needed to remove the cable from the HDMI port, therefore reducing service calls due to disconnections.
All Binary HDMI cables also feature an ultra-pliable jacket that ensures flexibility with a tighter bend radius and a low-profile connector that can save valuable space behind equipment. Each active connector head also features high-performance microelectronics to automatically monitor and protect signals to ensure reliable transmission.
The Bottom Line: The line of Binary BX 8K Active Cables provides consumers high-quality 8K pictures, up to 48 Gbps transmission speed, and support for high-resolution audio and video formats including Dolby Atmos, DTS-X, and HDMI 3D.
