Pure Fi Debuts Fiber-Optic HDMI Cables With Detachable Connectors


Pure Fi today unveiled the Pure Fi Pro HDMI 2.1 Active Optical Cable (AOC). The modular design features detachable Tx and Rx modules, making it easy to fish the pure optical fiber cable through conduit and other narrow openings before terminating at the desired endpoints. While the cable is narrow and flexible, Pure Fi says the durable fiber housing and dust-proof connectors withstand moisture, heat and other harsh environmental conditions to ensure years of trouble-free use. Pure Fi says this makes it ideal for ProAV, high-end home theater systems and gaming setups. It is backward-compatible with earlier versions of HDMI, ensuring that it can be used with existing HDMI devices.

Key features of the new Pure Fi Pro HDMI 2.1 AOC include:

  • CL3 Rated: Tested and certified to meet certain fire safety standards for safe in-wall installation, including the National Electrical Code (NEC) requirements for flame propagation and smoke generation.
  • Long-Distance, High-Bandwidth Connectivity Without Interference: Throughput up to 48 Gbps, supporting 8K content at 60 Hz or 4K content at 120 Hz over distances of up to 1,000 feet with “near-zero” EMI.
  • Lightweight, Flexible & Modular: Detachable Tx and Rx modules mean installers only need to fish less than .2 inch thin cable for easy in-wall and ceiling installation – no bulky HDMI connectors to get in the way. Once the cable is installed, future maintenance and upgrades are as simple as swapping out the head units without having to replace existing in-wall cabling.

The Pure Fi Pro HDMI 2.1 AOC is available now.
