Hall Research Announces the 4K Javelin™

Extend HDMI signals far beyond the typical limitations of copper cables

Tustin, CA. Hall Research,, announces addition of the 4K-Javelin™ active plenum HDMI cables to it's line of digital extension products.  The  4K-Javelin™ cables utilize the latest in optoelectronics to extend HDMI signals far beyond the typical limitations of copper cables. The cables are a hybrid of fiber and copper that allow HDMI signals to be extended 200 ft or longer with zero loss. All PC and HDTV resolutions are supported including 4K Ultra HD. The HDCP compliant cables also support DDC and CEC. Proprietary circuitry is conveniently incorporated inside the HDMI connectors to convert the video signals to light pulses and back.

4K-Javelin™ active plenum HDMI cables

The cables are available in standard lengths to 200 ft. No external power supply is required as power is drawn from the 5v signal pin of the source HDMI output.

The 4K Javelin™  cables are thin, flexible, and lightweight (only 12 oz for 50 ft cable). They can handle any resolution or color depth including non-standard video formats up to a maximum data rate of 10.2 Gbps. No compression is used so the image at the far end of the cable is 100% identical to the source.

The cables transmit digital video signals using light pulses. This provides high immunity to electromagnetic interference and consequently eliminates the chance of video dropouts due to environmental electromagnetic noise.

The 4K Javelin™ can be used like regular HDMI  cables but without the worry of boosters or equalizers. Being Plenum, also makes it possible to be used in virtually any installation environment. Applications include, home theater, conference rooms, schools, airports, hospitals and more. Hall Research is currently stocking 50, 75, 100, 150 and 200 ft lengths.
