Higher Resolution Displays

With the demand for faster access to flight data and in-flight entertainment (IFE) on avionics digital networks and displays, cables must deliver the highest data rates and video resolution without failing. At the same time, cables need to be smaller and lighter to fit in tiny spaces of cockpits and cabins.

Meeting 1.4 Cat2 and 2.0 protocols, GORE HDMI Cables are known to transmit outstanding signals for high-speed data and video transmission up to 18 Gb/s without interruption. They also support 4K (2160p) video resolution so pilots can view critical flight information and passengers can watch IFE on crystal-clear aircraft displays.


Size and flexibility matter when it comes to installing cables in airframes to avoid frequent failures, reduce replacement costs and keep aircraft weight down. Built with low-weight, flexible materials, our cable bundles offer smaller diameters with a tighter bend radius for less complicated routing in tight spaces that will please maintainers.

Though low in weight, they don’t compromise on durability and can easily sustain the demands of their surroundings where other cables have failed. All of these features translate to lifetime performance for operators and cost savings for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).
