Metra Home Theater Group

Metra Home Theater Group (MHTG) is showcasing a new series of long-distance Velox fiber HDMI cables at the 2019 CEDIA Expo. These ultra high speed cables are engineered with an expected bandwidth capability up to 48Gbps for 8K content*. The EHV-HDG2 Series from Velox will be available in lengths from 10 to 100 meters, or 32.8 to 328 feet.

MHTG’s workshop at CEDIA, “The HDMI Cable Faceoff” demonstration, will show attendees firsthand how the Velox cable’s ultra-premium construction and high-tech engineering results in clean, reliable performance for the demands of higher bandwidth content. Brent McCall from MHTG and Jeff Boccaccio, president of DPL Labs, will give a live demonstration of the Velox fiber cable’s bandwidth performance during the MHTG workshop on Thursday and Friday at 1:00 PM at booth 1338. Attendees will be entered into a drawing for free product giveaways following the conclusion of the workshop and must be present to win. Additional information about the workshop is available at

“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 CEDIA Expo. 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 is another tool we will be showcasing during our workshop that can upgrade cables to 48Gbps*. Overall, we will have connectivity solutions for every project requirement and budget and invite integrators to our workshop with DPL Labs so that they will know when to use each product most efficiently, while also witnessing live demos of our product’s performance capabilities,” she added.

This cable series is expected to ship soon. For more information about the Velox ultra-premium product line from Ethereal Home Theater, visit or head to the MHTG booth 1338 at the 2019 CEDIA Expo.
