Today's high-tech mission displays require cables to transmit and stream video fast in high definition so troops can view vital information instantly and clearly. At the same time, these cables need to deliver reliable signal transmission in less space without failing.

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 vehicle displays. They’re proven to transmit outstanding signals at high data rates up to 18 Gb so operators can receive and view critical Intel instantly in high definition.


Size and flexibility matter when it comes to routing cables in military vehicles to avoid frequent failures, reduce replacement costs and keep vehicle 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 surroundings inside or outside the vehicle, which translates to lifetime performance for operators 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 vehicle displays and portable devices.
