Bridgee Launches Flagship Active Optical HDMI Cable with ISF Certification
First-time CEDIA exhibitor Bridgee is proud to announce its new flagship HDMI cables, the Mark Series Hybrid Active Optical 2.1 models, certified by the industry’s most trusted authority: the Imaging Science Foundation (ISF). With a combination of unique opto-electric conversion supported by precision engineering with premium components, the engineers at Bridgee have maximized an already powerful cable technology to extract even greater detail for image and sound.
The Mark Series cables deliver transmission bandwidth of up to 48Gbps in runs as long as 30m, without the need for external power, for ultra-high-definition 4K/120Hz and 8K/60Hz signals (10K maximum support), with variable refresh rate (VRR) and QFT fast frame transmission, to efficiently handle 8K viewing and gaming.
The Mark Series is the first cable to incorporate Bridgee’s OE-Optiz™ design. To enable more efficient Optic-Electric conversion, the Bridgee team has optimized the Optic-Electric engine. This unique approach retains more subtle details of the sound and image for higher fidelity.
The Mark Series uses precision-grade materials and components to ensure the highest level of performance for audio and video signals. The cables feature a hybrid design that combines OM3 optical fiber with silver-plated OFC copper wire, preventing signal attenuation over long distances, up to 30m. To ensure the highest electrical conductivity at the connection, the Mark series employs 24K, 30u thick gold-plated copper connectors. Bridgee uses advanced welding and noise reduction techniques throughout the cable to ensure a precise end-to-end connection, while the aluminum shielding protects the cable from EMI and improves sound quality. The outer jacket features wear-resistant nylon braiding, preventing knotting and enabling easy, safe storage.
For installations that require a more robust solution, Bridgee also offers the Kai 2.1 cable supporting 48Gbps, featuring stainless steel tubing to provide powerful protection and crush resistance for this extremely lightweight and flexible cable, making it well-suited outdoor or other challenging installations.
Founded in 2020, Bridgee is committed to providing innovative solutions that surpass the standards required for today’s home entertainment needs and ensure its products will easily meet future standards. The design team’s expertise in aerospace engineering enables quick identification and resolution of high-speed signal transmission issues, giving Bridgee’s products a significant performance edge. The company’s award-winning flagship HDMI fiber optic cables, certified by ISF, utilize advanced technologies to enhance image contrast, color depth, and sound dynamics.
