C2G’s Ultra High Speed 8K HDMI Cable

With Bandwidth to 48Gbps, Cables Support Uncompressed 8K at 60Hz and 4K at 120Hz, Dynamic HDR, and eARC

DAYTON, Ohio — Nov. 11, 2021 — C2G today announced that the company’s new Performance Series Ultra High Speed HDMI® cables with Ethernet are now available. Offering high bandwidth to 48Gbps, the cables support all HDMI 2.1 features — including uncompressed 8K at 60Hz and 4K at 120Hz, dynamic HDR, and eARC — making them ideal for high-resolution applications in video production, broadcasting, gaming, and more.

“The Performance Series’ 48Gbps bandwidth allows for higher resolutions, faster refresh rates, and enhanced audio and media features,” said Brad Shinkle, product manager at C2G, a brand of Legrand. “With their support for 8K resolutions — and even 10K for commercial AV applications — the cables deliver an incredibly immersive viewing experience. In addition, with their 4K 120Hz capability, they ensure that ultra-fast motion images from gaming and VR applications are crisp and sharp.”

With support for dynamic HDR, C2G’s Performance Series cables optimize displayed video on a scene-by-scene or even a frame-by-frame basis. They provide an extended contrast range, delivering darker blacks, brighter whites, and greater image detail across all color spaces. In addition, with their eARC capability, they support the latest audio formats, including uncompressed 5.1, 7.2, and 32-channel audio.

An in-wall (CMG/FT4) rated jacket allows installers to safely run the cables inside walls for a clean, clutter-free look. For high-density environments, they feature compact overmolding. Integrated finger grips on the connectors allow for easy insertion and removal. The cables’ gripping connector shells deliver twice the port retention to keep devices firmly connected, while gold-plated connectors allow for better shielding, increased electrical conductivity, and durability. Certified to ensure low EMI, the cables reduce interference with wireless networks, streaming media players, Bluetooth devices, mobile phones, and more.

C2G’s Performance Series Ultra High Speed HDMI cables with Ethernet are available through retailers and direct to users from C2G. Offered in five lengths from 2 feet to 12 feet, the cables are backed by an unprecedented lifetime warranty.
