Wireworld Introduces 8K Fibre Optic HDMI Cable Range

Highly respected cable brand, Wireworld, has announced its first range of Fibre Optic HDMI 8K cables.

Wireworld says this new range of cables “utilises the highest quality laser modules and driver chips to improve image quality, providing long term reliability that Wireworld is famous for.” Ensuring next-generation video application compatibility, the Stellar range supports 48Gbps data rate. Stellar supports all HDMI2.1 features and capabilities, including HDR10+, HDCP2.3, Ethernet, Enhanced ARC, Deep Colour, etc.

Conventional copper HDMI cables can only support 48Gbps signals over lengths of a few meters. By utilising fibre optic, long cable lengths can be achieved as required, for example, for a projector that is often located some distance from the AV components. 

Wireworld continued:

Stellar utilises world-class parts, materials and market-leading construction techniques. Stellar's laser modules are made by the American company II-VI, a leading supplier of lasers for the most demanding applications. Likewise, the driver chipset is produced by the German company, Silicon-Line, a leader in microchip technology.

The cable's four optical fibres are said to be “superior OM3 laser-optimised grade”, while the cable's structure features double-thickness shields and several high strength Kevlar fibre bundles “for increased durability and freedom from interference”.

The Stellar cables are offered in 5, 10, 15, 20 and 30m lengths ranging in price from AUD $1,099 to $1,699 RRP.

The new Wireworld Stellar Optic Fibre 8K HDMI cable range is available now and is covered by a 2-year limited Australian warranty.

    applause awards

    Each time StereoNET reviews a product, it is considered for an Applause Award. Winning one marks it out as a design of great quality and distinction – a special product in its class, on the grounds of either performance, value for money, or usually both.

    Applause Awards are personally issued by StereoNET’s global Editor-in-Chief, David Price – who has over three decades of experience reviewing hi-fi products at the highest level – after consulting with our senior editorial team. They are not automatically given with all reviews, nor can manufacturers purchase them.

    The StereoNET editorial team includes some of the world’s most experienced and respected hi-fi journalists with a vast wealth of knowledge. Some have edited popular English language hi-fi magazines, and others have been senior contributors to famous audio journals stretching back to the late 1970s. And we also employ professional IT and home theatre specialists who work at the cutting edge of today’s technology.

    We believe that no other online hi-fi and home cinema resource offers such expert knowledge, so when StereoNET gives an Applause Award, it is a trustworthy hallmark of quality. Receiving such an award is the prerequisite to becoming eligible for our annual Product of the Year awards, awarded only to the finest designs in their respective categories. Buyers of hi-fi, home cinema, and headphones can be sure that a StereoNET Applause Award winner is worthy of your most serious attention.
