HDMI 2.1 Active Optical Cable


Introducing AOC-8, the future of active cabling is finally here to support the next evolution of video interconnects like HDMI 2.1 and eARC.  These active cables are Dolby Vision and Ultra HD 4K certified.  Designed to go the distance without compromising quality, our AOC-8 is capable of sending any source all the way to 48Gbps supporting future video resolutions such as 5K, 8K, and 10K.  Our award winning “Autonomous EDID Management” algorithm has been implemented within the design to ensure your displays will be able to communicate with virtually every source.  AOC-8 comes in varying lengths to accommodate most installations.


With compliance to HDMI 2.1 and eARC, you can future-proof your cabling infrastructure with AOC-8.


VESA DSC 1.2a link compression, which is a visually lossless compression scheme. VESA DSC 1.2a also can be used to obtain higher resolutions than 8K60/4:2:0/10-bit color, such as 8K60 RGB, 8K120 and even 10K120. VESA DSC 1.2a also supports 4Kp50/60 with the benefit of enabling operation at much lower link rates.
