TechLogix 8K Cables Receive HDMI Certification
TechLogix announced their MOFO™ line of fiber-based 8K HDMI cables are officially one of the first HDMI 2.1 products to receive certification from the HDMI Forum and HDMI Licensing Administrator, and effective immediately certified MOFO™ products will feature an Ultra High Speed HDMI Certification Label on each package.
“The Ultra High Speed HDMI cable is the only way to ensure all the features and capabilities of the HDMI 2.1 Specification are delivered from a source device to a display. Ensuring Ultra High Speed HDMI cables are compliant with the HDMI 2.1 Specification is essential to the HDMI eco-system,” said David Glen of Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. and president of the HDMI Forum. “The HDMI Forum’s mandatory ATC-only certification requirements are designed to ensure cables are compliant with the HDMI 2.1 Specification. And the anti-counterfeit Ultra High Speed HDMI Certification Label and its scanning results provides a visible verification of certification that a product meets the HDMI Forum’s requirements.”
All certified products must pass certification testing at an HDMI Authorized Testing Center (ATC) and TechLogix initially submitted and received approval on MOFO-HD21-10 (10m) and MOFO-HD21-15 (15m) products. Testing is underway for additional lengths, including the short length cables typically used for gaming and eSports, as well as the longer length cables typically used for home AV distribution. Product information can be found online.
All MOFO™ cables support the entire HDMI 2.1 specification, including all of its features and benefits:
- 48G 8K60 Dynamic HDR / HDCP 2.2 / 3D / Deep Color
- VRR / QMS / QFT / ALLM / DSC
- Multi-channel audio / Dolby TrueHD / DTS-HD Master Audio / ARC / eARC
- EDID / CEC / HEC
Plus, unlike other connectivity options, MOFO™ even drives beyond HDMI. The true fiber core can be spliced and re-terminated with standard fiber optic tools and connectors. A MOFO™ cable used for HDMI today can be re-purposed for network, control or other audio/video formats tomorrow.
