Bullet Train Premium HDMI Cables Introduce Active Optical Cables in New Lengths

Bullet Train, an AVPro Global Holdings company, is proud to announce the release of six new lengths in their line of premium active optical HDMI cables. Now available in 1, 1.5, 2, 3 and 5 meter lengths in addition to the Long Haul 15, 20, 30 and 40 meter lengths, the Bullet Train AOC line up has a solution to fit any installation. These HDMI cables utilize four strands of fiber optic cable along with copper wire to create an ultra-stable vessel for passing high frame rate and high bandwidth video content. The Short Haul line of AOC cables will easily pass HDR (High Dynamic Range), WCG (Wide Color Gamut), and 18Gbps 4K60 (4:4:4) video signals.

Bullet Train Short Haul AOC Cables were developed for use when HDMI signal stability is of the utmost importance. Ideal for competitive e-sports, home theaters, movie theaters and mission critical environments – live events, hospitals, or broadcast – these cables can reduce input lag by up to 20%. Bullet Train AOC Cables are not susceptible to electromagnetic interference which can become a problem in rack rooms in corporate environments, casinos, sports bars, and more.

Matt Murray of AVPro Global Holdings discussed some of the benefits of using an active optical cable, “Some poor quality sources simply fail to function adequately in distributed systems, whereby, the source is traveling through several components. If you have a poor source, you have to reduce insertion loss – which is ever present with copper. The only way to combat it is to use a thicker gauge copper cable. Using fiber allows you to “fix” problem sources without having to use a longer/thicker cable. 

“The signal construct is different on AOC cables. Fiber optic cable does not require equalization and is impervious to any interference. Using AOC’s allows you to either overcome or avoid totally physical & protocol problems with sources and sinks. We commonly recommend using a cable built this way to solve issues with some devices. The future is coming – these cables will likely be 2.1 capable and they can be cut and re-terminated into another extension device.”

The latest audio/video sources such as Kaleidoscape Strato, Oppo, Xbox ONE S, PS4 Pro and more are outputting higher bandwidth and frame rate signals than ever before. 4K and HDR are readily available, but not all cables can handle this complex signal. The Bullet Train Short Haul AOC Cables will allow any signal under HDMI 2.0 to pass with zero problems or latency.
