Overview

In today’s high-tech flight displays, cables need to transfer video data reliably while delivering higher-quality resolution so military personnel can view vital information clearly and instantly. At the same time, they need to deliver more power and consistent signal integrity in less space.

High-Speed Video Data Transfer With Higher Resolution

GORE Aerospace HDMI Cables, 2.0 version delivers outstanding signal integrity for high-speed video data transmission up to 18 gigabits (Gb/s). Our cable bundles enable a higher video resolution up to 4K at 50/60 (2160p), which is four times the clarity of 1080p/60 resolution. Military personnel and flight crews can now view crystal clear, high definition aircraft displays.

Also, our 2.0 version significantly reduces overall cable diameter and weight because of the unique materials in their construction. They also have greater flexibility and a tighter bend radius for simpler routing in tiny spaces, particularly when retrofitting cables in updated aircraft where space is at a premium. But, this smaller profile doesn’t mean durability is compromised — our cables can sustain the demands of their surroundings ensuring life-of-aircraft performance.
