THX Ltd. and Pixelgen Design Announce THX Certified 8K Interconnect Home Theater Cables
THX Ltd. and Pixelgen Design today announced the world’s first THX Certified 8K Interconnect home theater cables delivering uncompressed 48Gbps bit rates and HDMI 2.1 feature set support up to 15m (approximately 50 feet). The full lineup includes the PXLGLASS 8 Optical Fiber/Copper Interconnect and the Pixelgen SERIES 8, Ultra High Speed HDMI Cables. These new cables are both HDMI and THX Certified, having passed extensive proprietary and industry-leading tests to meet the gold standards in high fidelity.
PXLGLASS 8 Hybrid Optical Fiber/Copper HDMI Interconnect claims to be the industry’s first active long-reach THX Certified 8K Interconnect HDMI solution. It is capable of extending full-bandwidth uncompressed 8K60, perfect for larger or more expansive home theatres. PXLGLASS 8 utilizes premium 4-Core OC3 glass fibers that carry the 48Gbps (12Gbps per/fiber) high-speed FRL signals downstream to the 8K display while exchanging critical low-speed communication such as HDCP 2.3, eARC, and CEC over copper-based wires. This hybrid fiber/copper cabling implementation approach guarantees the highest standard of robustness, interoperability, and reliability critical for all 8K applications for almost any home theater setup or installation. They are available in 7.6m, 10m, and 15m (approx. 50 feet) lengths starting at $389 USD MSRP with dealer pricing available, and available directly from pixelgendesign.com and from resellers listed therein.
