Xantech’s patented X-GRIP Technology™ can resist up to 10 pounds of pull force to keep cables securely in place.
ORLANDO, FLORIDA, June 15, 2017— Xantech, the industry standard in IR and connectivity solutions, today introduced itsEX Series High-Speed HDMI Cables with X-GRIP Technology at InfoComm 2017 in Booth #4955. According to Neal Ellsworth, Product Manager of New Initiatives at Core Brands, Xantech’s EX Series High-Speed HDMI Cables with X-GRIP Technology sets a new standard of quality and affordability for connectivity solutions.
“With the introduction of this new line, we are extending Xantech’s reputation for value-added innovation to a product category that integrators are using on almost every project,” Ellsworth said. “Xantech’s new HDMI Cables deliver the high-performance value that commercial integrators need for the growing number of video installations they work on every day.”
Xantech’s new line of piano-gloss finished connectors, available in .7 m, 1m, 1.5m, 2m, 3m, and 4m lengths, are equipped with the brand’s innovative patented X-GRIP Technology to resist up to 10 pounds of pull force to keep cables securely in place. “Xantech has designed these cables with the convenience of the commercial integrator in mind,” Ellsworth emphasized. “Our patented X-GRIP Technology ensures that an integrator will never need to roll a truck for a loose cable again.”
With support for all current HDMI features – including 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, Dolby Surround, and more – Xantech’s new HDMI Cables with X-GRIP Technology are designed to surpass the needs of the most demanding system.
“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 beyond ultra-premium 4K features,” Ellsworth said. “And, 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/60video resolution.”
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 commercial integrator knows that stunning 4K content requires the best components and cabling,” Ellsworth explained. “Xantech’s EX Series High-Speed HDMI Cables with X-GRIP Technology are built to exceed the needs of today’s content with high quality construction that integrators can rely on.”
Shipping in June 2017, all cables come in frustration-free individual poly bags, bulk packs for easy ordering, and convenient truck packs consisting of one bulk pack of each of the six cable lengths.
