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.
CRYSTAL CLEAR, HIGH-DEFINITION DISPLAYS
It’s essential for aircrews to view critical video instantly and as clearly as possible in cockpits and workstations to avoid potential disasters. So aviation cables must be rugged, support high-resolution displays and transmit fast, reliable signals. Cables must also be small enough to fit in limited spaces and light enough to help save weight on aircraft.
Offering versions for 1.4 Cat2 and 2.0 protocols, GORE HDMI Cables support 4K video resolution for a rich, clear, defined viewing experience on aircraft displays. They’re proven to transmit outstanding signals at high data rates up to 18 Gb so that aircrews can receive and view critical Intel instantaneously in high definition.
LOW-WEIGHT, FLEXIBLE CONSTRUCTION
Size and flexibility matter when it comes to routing cables in military aircraft to avoid frequent failures, reduce replacement costs and keep aircraft weight down. We construct our HDMI cable bundles with unique, low-weight materials that produce smaller diameters and tighter bend radii for optimal flexibility during installation. When space is at a premium, maintainers will appreciate how quick and easy it is to bend and route our cable bundles.
But, that doesn’t mean durability is compromised. Though low weight, these cable bundles can easily sustain the demands of their environment, providing lifetime performance for military personnel and cost savings for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).
When you want a product that involves less complicated routing and delivers unfailing high data rate performance for life, connect GORE HDMI Cables to your aircraft displays and portable devices.
