THX Ltd Launches THX Interconnect Ultra High-Speed HDMI 2.1 Cables


THX Ltd today announced it is launching THX Interconnect, designed in partnership with Pixelgen. THX Interconnect is a family of Ultra High Speed HDMI 2.1 cables that THX claims are capable of delivering 100% uncompressed 48Gbps signaling to optimize the fidelity and reliability of nearly any sized or configured home theater system. THX is also relaunching its home theater installer THX Certified Training series.

Utilizing Pixelgen’s PXLGLASS Hybrid Fiber/Copper technology, the THX Interconnect cables maintain the smallest cable diameter possible regardless of length when crossing over from copper to long-reach optical fiber requirements, making installation and management “easy and effective.”

THX Interconnect Ultra High Speed HDMI cables support the maximum 8-10K resolutions at 60 frames per second and include:

  • THX Interconnect (Copper) short-range cable for six sizes: 0.5m (1.64 ft), 1m (3.28 ft), 1.5m (4.92 ft), 2m (6.56 ft), 3m (9.84 ft), 5m (16.4 ft); and
  • THX Interconnect (Copper + Optical Fiber with embedded PXLGLASS Technology) long-range cable for three sizes: 7.6m (24.9 ft), 10m (32.8 ft), 15m (49.2 ft).
