Product Info

Tributaries UHD HDMI cables were engineered with 4K/60 HDMI version 2.0 in mind. By earning the DPL Seal of Approval, Tributaries guarantees all passive UHD cables to successfully pass data rates up to 18Gbps while the active cables pass up to 11.14Gbps ensuring the consumer years of uninterrupted HDMI viewing. 3 models were designed to be installer friendly: The UHDS SLIM model brags one of the smallest connectors in the industry with performance out to 4 meters. The UHDP PRO model was designed for long hauls up to 15 meters. The AURORA UHDO model is a hybrid fiber-optic cable that delivers a full 18Gbps up to 30 meters. All three models are DPL Approved.

Model AURORA UHDO Series

Tributaries - AUROROA UHDOTributaries - AUROROA UHDOTributaries Aurora Optical UHD HDMI cable is the first of its kind to be certified by DPL Labs to transport HDMI signals at data rates up to 18Gbps over cable lengths from 10m (32.8ft) to 30m (98.4ft).

Engineered as a hybrid fiber optic cable, Aurora is a marvel of electro-optical engineering combining the best of worlds, glass and copper.  Glass transports the video/audio/clock and control signals while the copper carries the Digital Display Channel (DDC) responsible for the 2-way communication of EDID and HDCP. The components required for the electrical/optical/electrical conversions are efficiently contained in the connector head shells. Power is provided by way of a USB connection that can be used with a separate 5-volt power supply (wall wart) or by any USB2 port.

The brain of the cable, originally designed for military applications, is an optical microchip encased in the HDMI source-connector. Imbedded in the microchip are 4 vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers, VCSELs, semiconductor-based laser diodes that emit a highly efficient optical beam perpendicular to the fiber surface. Each TMDS modulated beam is reflected off a mirror and injected into a multi mode fiber optic glass cable producing 4 TMDS optical channels. The channels are surrounded by highly reflective OM3 (10G) cladding. The sink-end connector houses the Photo Diode receptors that decode the TMDS modulated light beams and convert them back to an electrical HDMI signal.

Tributaries is proud to bring you AURORA. The first fiber cable certified by DPL Labs to pass 18Gbps out to 30 meters. AURORA. More data . . . farther
