Cable Matters Launches High Speed Cable and Adapter Products for Connecting an 8K TV or Monitor

Southborough, Massachusetts (Findit) May 6, 2019 - Cable Matters®, an industry-leading supplier of connectivity solutions, announced new 8K additions to their line of ultra-high definition video cables and adapters. These new products support HDMI® 2.1 and DisplayPort™ 1.4 for 8K video resolution.

Does 8K Video Matter?

8K OLED TVs are currently for sale. These sleek 55-inch to 98-inch displays, with a wide viewing angle up to 160°, require the clearest contrast and color depths on such a large screen. Even with 4K content upscaled by the TV, the picture can be distorted if the video information is not transmitted quickly and accurately.

Bandwidth Bandwagon for Video Streaming & Gaming

4K video streaming boxes and high-end gaming consoles push the bandwidth limit of cables to a 4K UHD TV or an ultrawide gaming monitor. 8K-rated video cables and adapters can accommodate the extreme bandwidth demands of today's 4K video including 7.1 surround sound audio and HDR high dynamic range color depth support. Gamers can eliminate distortion and lag when connecting a video graphics card to a high refresh rate 144Hz gaming monitor.
