TechLogix fibre-based 8K cables receive HDMI certification

TechLogix has announced that its line of MOFO fibre-based 8K HDMI cables are one of the first HDMI 2.1 products to receive certification from the HDMI Forum and HDMI Licensing Administrator, according to the company.

All certified MOFO products will now feature an Ultra High Speed HDMI Certification Label on its packaging.

To receive the certification, all products must pass certification testing at an HDMI Authorised Testing Centre (ATC). Initially, TechLogix submitted and received approval on its MOFO-HD21-10 (10m) and MOFO-HD21-15 (15m) products but testing is now 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.

All MOFO cables support the HDMI 2.1 specification, including features such as 48G 8K60 Dynamic HDR, HDCP 2.2, 3D, Deep Colour, VRR, QMS, QFT, ALLM, DSC, EDID, CEC, and HEC. It also supports multi-channel audio, Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD Master Audio, ARC, and eARC.

A futureproofing solution, MOFO cables drive beyond HDMI. The true fibre core can be spliced and re-terminated with standard fibre optic tools and connectors. MOFO cables can be repurposed for network, control or other AV formats the future brings.

“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,” said David Glen of Advanced Micro Devices and president of the HDMI Forum.

“Ensuring Ultra High Speed HDMI cables are compliant with the HDMI 2.1 Specification is essential to the HDMI ecosystem. 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.”
