The Best Solution to the problem of installation on corrugated or duct. 15 meters.
The new Across HDMI 2.0 cable was revised in substance, without changing anything in the aesthetics and the already appreciated functionality of the previous series.
In particular, we operated on the quality of the conductors and the shields (which derive from the Hi-End series), thus making possible a substantial increase in the already excellent Audio / Video quality of this cable.
Today Across is a reference in the medium / high range for the transmission of HDMI signals. Who has tested the installation of HDMI cables in small channels knows how unlikely it is to pass the connector into the most parts of the corrugated and for this reason you have to ask the intervention of installers or solve with a DIY of difficult realisation.
Ricable has designed a very special cable that allows you to solve this difficult problem even with channels of only 2 cm internal diameter.
The Bandwidth of the Across series is very much higher compared to the minimum one required by the HDMI 2.0 specifications which is 18 Gbps and more than twice the one required by the Full HD signals.
This value measures the digital data amount the cable can pass per second and the high obtained value allows obtaining a purity of image and a very high sound quality.
The TMDS and HEAC conductors are pure single crystal OCC copper 25 AWG Solid Core for lengths from 1 to 15 meters, while for 20 meters the conductors are 24 AWG. The conductors are equipped with a double dedicated shielding and the contacts are 24K gold-plated.
The Across cable is equipped with a removable body connector that allows reducing drastically the overall dimensions of the cable end and thus allows transiting the cable in the corrugated inside the wall.
The biggest problem of this project was the one to protect the external and internal contacts in the best possible way. Therefore we provided a casting of plastic material on the internal contacts which prevents any unweld, while we supplied the cable with a protection cap for external contacts.
Another problem we wanted to solve was the smoothness of the cable in the small channel. Therefore we coated it with a particular bright braiding that also allows solving this situation.
Inside the package you'll also find some useful tips to carry out the ducting operation without ruining product quality.
HDMI 2.0 certified cable, the new frontier of High Audio&Video Definition. This cable doesn't only meet the minimum required specifications by the HDMI consortium, but exceeds them by far, in order to offer always the best on the market.
The Ricable HDMI 2.0 series is backward compatible with the HDMI 1.4 and 1.3 versions, both for functionality as well as for the features.
The new supported resolution 4K@50/60, more commonly known as 4K Ultra HD, is the new visual standard that allows images 4 times more defined than the "old" Full HD 1080p. Ricable supports also fully 3D 4K, which due to the high construction quality is more clear and sharp.
Support for native reproduction in wide-angle lens 21:9 format, the same reproduction format as in cinemas/movies and which represents the future of Home Vision.
Native support up to 32 Audio channels for an unprecedented multidimensional experience.
Losless audio support with 1536kHz sampling frequency for an unprecedented purity of sound at the Home Cinema.
The Ricable cables integrate the Ethernet channel to transfer the data flow up to 100 Mb/Sec directly in the HDMI cable among the different connected devices so that all the connected devices will be networked without the use of other cables.
The Audio Return Channel allows managing the Audio in both directions from the television to the receiver in such a way that it won't be necessary to use a second return cable from the TV in order to listen to the last one with the Home Cinema system.
The making of the Ricable HDMI 2.0 cables has particular shielding to protect the data against noise. They have all triple shielding and connectors realized with antijammed alloys. The contacts are gold-plated and the used dielectrics are the most efficient ones on the market. All these attentions allow greatly to improve the signal transit and to reduce external interference.
