GORE® HDMI Cables for Civil Aircraft
Our cable bundles in two versions enable a higher resolution for increased clarity when pilots are viewing flight data in cockpits and passengers are watching IFE in cabins during travel. They meet the industry’s demand for higher data rates on airborne digital networks and systems in a small, low-weight construction.

Data Sheet: GORE® HDMI Cables (1.4 Cat2 / 2.0 Versions) for Aircraft
Data Sheets, 469.25 KB
High-definition video is essential for modern avionics, from critical displays in the cockpit to cabin displays for entertainment. GORE HDMI Cables for Aircraft from W. L. Gore & Associates support a wide array of aircraft video applications with crystal-clear 4K (2160p) resolution and fast data transmission up to 18 Gb. In addition to excellent video performance, our HDMI aviation cables offer a small diameter and light design to enhance flexibility and make routing simple.

With the advancements in modern digital networks and passenger demand for faster access to IFE in high definition, cables need to deliver higher data rates over longer distances with higher video resolution. At the same time, they need to provide consistent power performance and signal integrity in less space.
GORE Aerospace HDMI 2.0 Cables enable a higher resolution up to 4K at 50/60 (2160p), which is four times the clarity of 1080p/60 video resolution allowing passengers to experience IFE in even higher definition. Gore’s cable bundles deliver excellent signal integrity for high-speed data transmission up to 18 gigabits over longer distances.
Higher Resolution Displays
GORE HDMI Cables in 1.4 Cat2 and 2.0 versions support 4K (2160p) resolution, which is 4x the clarity of 1080p for a richer viewing experience on cockpit and cabin displays. Our cable bundles provide outstanding high-speed signals for data and video transmission up to 18 Gb, so flight crews can view necessary data and passengers can watch IFE on crystal clear, high definition displays.
They significantly reduce overall cable size because of the unique low-weight materials in the construction that enables a smaller cable diameter. Aircraft maintainers will be pleased because the greater flexibility and tighter bending capability of these cable bundles involve less complicated routing where space is at a premium. But, that doesn’t mean durability is compromised — our cable bundles can sustain the demands of their surroundings, ensuring lifetime performance long after the alternatives have failed.
