Xantech announces that its EX Series High-Speed HDMI Cables with X-GRIP Technology is now shipping worldwide.

According to Neal Ellsworth, product manager of New Initiatives at Core Brands, Xantech’s HDMI cables are of high quality and are affordable. “This introduction extends Xantech’s reputation for value-added innovation to a product category that technology integrators are using on almost every project,” Ellsworth says. “Xantech’s new HDMI Cables deliver the high-performance value that installers need for the growing number of video installations they work on every day.”

Xantech’s line of piano-gloss finished connectors – available in .7 m, 1m, 1.5m, 2m, 3m, and 4m lengths – are equipped with the brand’s patented X-GRIP Technology to resist up to 10 pounds of pull force to keep cables securely in place. “Our X-GRIP Technology ensures that an integrator will never need to roll a truck for a loose cable again,” Ellsworth comments.

Top Features

Xantech’s cables support offerings include HDR, 18Gbps transfer rates, resolutions up to UHD and DCI 4K at 60 frames per second in 4:4:4 Chroma sub-sampling, Audio Return Channel and Dolby Surround.

“Whether connecting a single local component to a display or patching multiple components in a centrally distributed AV system, Xantech’s .7m to 4m HDMI Cables provide flexibility while delivering 4K features,” Ellsworth says. “The Cables’ HDR transmission ability is startlingly fast and clear, with a bandwidth speed faster than 18Gbps at 4K@50/60 (2160p) and four times the clarity of 1080p/60 video resolution.”

Shielding and Encasing

Additionally, the new line-up features a solid aluminum internal EMI shielding jacket that encases the entire connector head overlapping the cable’s shielding well. Gold plated contacts housed in a porcelain shielded connector aid in rejecting stray capacitance from other interconnected components.

“Any installer knows that stunning 4K content requires the best components and cabling,” Ellsworth concludes. “These cables are built to exceed the needs of today’s content with high quality construction that integrators can rely on.” Here’s our definitive list of the best ways to watch 4K content.
