Metra Home Theater Group

Metra Home Theater Group (MHTG) is showcasing a new series of long-distance Velox fiber HDMI cables at CES. These ultra high speed cables are engineered with an expected bandwidth capability up to 48Gbps for 8K and 10K content*. The EHV-HDG2 Series from Velox will be available in lengths from 10 to 100 meters, or 32.8 to 328 feet and on display at booth 11435 in the Central Hall.

 

“8K is the big talk of the AV and home theater industry, but getting there will be a challenge for integrators,” says Jessy Crabb, General Manager of Metra Home Theater Group. “While we are still waiting on the official CTS to be released, we know that the massive increase in bandwidth required for 8K has posed a serious problem for systems with long-run cables. Metra Home Theater Group has been working hard to develop new technology to resolve this and is excited to show integrators the next generation of premium Velox fiber HDMI cables at the 2020 CES Show. This new series will allow integrators to provide solutions engineered for the future of high-end, longer run home theater systems that will require 8K performance. For systems with passive HDMI cables already in the wall, our HDM-GA2 Gigabit Accelerator, which can upgrade cables to 48Gbps*, is another tool we will be showcasing at the 2020 CES Show.” A production sample of this series was first shown at the 2019 CEDIA Expo. Now, the final version of this cable will be at CES and is expected to ship soon.
