Snap One, formerly known as SnapAV, has introduced its new line of Binary BX 8K Active HDMI Cables, which are designed to support 8K UHD at 60Hz 4:2:0 and up to 10K at 30 Hz 4:4:4. They also display 4K at 120Hz and 4K at 60Hz 4:4:4 and handle transmission speeds up to 48Gbps.
“The BX line was crafted with the latest technology and designed with partners in mind,” says David Chen, Product Manager at Snap One. “This new line ensures that partners are prepared for today’s latest 8K capable TVs, AV receivers from Denon, Marantz and Yamaha, as well as the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X gaming consoles. With these advanced HDMI cables, forward-thinking dealers will be able to get ahead of the game and future proof their installs.”
With premium 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, says Snap One.
Without the need for external power, the new active cables create a simpler and cleaner install, adds the company. The incorporated gripping design ensures up to 8lbs. of pull force is needed to remove the cable from the HDMI port, 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 micro-electronics to automatically monitor and protect signals to ensure reliable transmission.
The new line of Binary BX 8K Active Cables provides the highest quality 8K picture, up to 48Gbps transmission speed, and supports high-resolution audio and video formats including Dolby Atmos, DTS-X, and HDMI 3D.
