Aeon’s 8K AOC Range of HDMI cables ensure 48 Gbps (12Gbps per TMDS Line) so that you can experience full 8K@60Hz or 4K@120Hz with no signal degradation. Aeon’s 8K HDMI cables uses a hybrid copper and OM3 Fibre cables, combined with one of the best chipsets and lasers. This cable is the ideal solution for new gen consoles and suits any mid to high end installations.
(Please Note: This cable is an Active Cable and therefore must be installed in the right direction. If the cable is installed back to front, it will not work)
What Makes AEON AOC Cables Different?
Not all AOC HDMI cables are built the same. There are many factors that make one better than the other. The most important factors are the chipsets and the lasers that are used to turn electrons into photons and back again. Aeon’s AOC range only uses the best German made Silicon chipsets and Philips VCSEL Lasers. This ensures long lasting performance and minimal bit error rates.
Due to the limitation of the design and manufacturing process, the lasers from different manufacturers have different intensity of optical power and the life of the laser is also inconsistent. This will directly lead to the failure of the HDMI AOC cable after being introduced to the market. It may produce faults like Splash screens, black screens, and even direct failures after one or two months. The four-way lasers may stop one at a time or all together and it is a hidden danger.
In response to this problem, Aeon AOC cables go through a unique set of equipment to monitor the optical power consumption of 4-way lasers to ensure that all products have reliable optical paths and reduce the degradation.
How We Test 8K AOC Cables
Because 8K is a new resolution and not many sources are outputting true 8K60 signals, we use the ASTRO VG-879 to test 48Gbps. This generator lets us test 12Gbps per TMDS lines. To utilize the full functions of the HDMI 2.1 specifications, HDMI 2.1 cables require 12Gbps per TMDS line. Make sure you buy 8K cables that are tested as there are many cable manufacturers out there saying they are 8K ready but not have gone under actual testing.
By buying Aeon’s 8K AOC cables, you are guaranteed that you will not have any compatibility issues and we also guarantee true 48Gbps.
