About the Austere III Series Premium HDMI Cable
Austere HDMI cables are designed for performance and durability. These cables meet the highest standards of 4K specifications to maximize the picture and sound quality from your audio/video gear.
Kevlar-reinforced windings and a WovenArmor jacket ensure flexibility and strength. Austere's gold-plated shield and contacts create connections you can count on for years. The cable's slim housing is visually appealing, and flexible for tight installations — these are the most flexible HDMI cables we've seen.
The creators of HDMI technology developed a rigorous cable testing and authentication process: The Premium HDMI Cable Certification Program. Cables are tested to make sure they support the full 18 Gbps bandwidth provided by the HDMI 2.0 specification. Plus, an EMI test ensures that cables minimize interference with wireless signals. Finally, every length of every model line must pass the tests to receive certification.
The certification program also includes a special authentication label placed on every certified product. It's a response to all the counterfeit and no-name cables on the market that claim performance that they don't actually deliver.
Should you get a Premium HDMI cable?
At lengths of a few meters or less, any well-made "high-speed" HDMI cable should work fine in most 4K applications. But if you're connecting an Ultra HD Blu-ray player to a 4K TV — especially a longer run — a Premium HDMI cable will guarantee flawless performance.
