Austere Launches 8K HDMI 2.1 Certified Cables

Austere has launched its new 8K Ultra-High-Speed HDMI cable just in time for Christmas, which is officially certified for HDMI 2.1 connectivity from the HDMI Forum, and engineered to optimize home theatre, 8K gaming, and other media experiences, says the company.

The cables are designed to meet the highest standards of 8K UHD specifications and can support resolutions and refresh rates of 8K@60 and 4K@120 and even up to 10K. Dynamic HDR formats are also supported, and bandwidth capability is increased up to 48Gbps. To authenticate the Ultra-High-Speed Certification, the cable comes with a label that can be scanned by the HDMI Cable Certification app available on the Apple App Store, Google Play Store, and other Android app stores.

The new Austere Ultra-High-Speed HDMI cables are ideal for enjoying the experience with 8K video games for both console and PC gamers, like Resident Evil Village, and perform to the highest specifications of the new range of HDMI 2.1 TVs, AV receivers, gaming consoles, and other hardware products from manufacturers like Yamaha, Acer, and LG Electronics. Thanks to HDMI 2.1 specification, users enjoy enhanced gaming and media features, with smooth, seamless motion and transitions. These features are also ideal for streaming content to 8K-enabled TVs.

The new Austere cables are backward compatible and can be used with the existing install base of HDMI devices.

“The new generation of 8K big-screen TVs and high-performance gaming consoles have breathed tremendous life into the CE and caming industries this year, and our retailers are enthusiastically embracing the new hardware and software products to offer their customers the 8K experience this holiday season,” says Austere Founder and CEO Deena Ghazarian. “Our certified cables, with their gorgeous packaging, are helping retailers by calling attention to the benefits of the 8K revolution in consumer technology and offer an added-value purchase that will ensure maximum performance and enjoyment from all the new 8K products.”

Austere’s 8K HDMI cables also include High-Fidelity eARC technology, which delivers the highest quality streaming audio available, while the Variable Refresh Rate provides smooth performance and virtually eliminates image lag, stutter, and frame tearing.

The Austere 8K HDMI cable has Kevlar-reinforced windings and Austere signature WovenArmor cable, which the company says are thinner than most other 8K cable options, combine flexibility and strength, so weaving around a corner never derails the signal. The pure endurance gold shield contacts create a flawless connection that will last a lifetime, Austere adds. Meanwhile, the cable’s elegant aDesign housing is stylish and purposeful in that it can fit in tight spots. Finally, the LinkFit Connector ensures a perfect connection that will firmly stay in place.

Austere’s 8K Ultra-High-Speed HDMI cable is available in 1.5 and 2.5 metre lengths for US$99 and US$149, respectively.  They can be found in Canada at Visions Electronics stores.
