Our take on the Celerity Technologies Detachable Fiber Optic HDMI Cable by Crutchfield's Steve Kindig
HDMI cable that goes the distance
Enjoy all your high-definition movies, TV shows, and video games on any HDTV in your home with Celerity Technologies' fiber optic HDMI cables. These sleek cables deliver outstanding high-definition video and sound, including full 4K content, at distances up to 1,000 feet — far beyond the reach of conventional copper-based cables. Celerity cables also support ARC (Audio Return Channel) so there's no need to connect a second cable to enjoy sound from your TV through a compatible home theater system.
The cable plugs into the keystone connector, which plugs into a special wall plate (wall plate sold separately).
How it works
Celerity cables work by converting electrical HDMI data into optical signals inside the fiber optic HDMI connectors. Precision embedded technology sends light signals carrying the HDMI data stream from your source component through the fiber optic cable to your TV or projector, where it's converted back to an electrical HDMI connection.
Since the cable is fiber optic, there's no signal loss, even over long runs, and it's impervious to interference from appliances, wireless devices, computers, or other noisy electronic equipment. Your audio/video content will arrive at its destination looking and sounding as good as when it started.
No time-consuming fiber terminations are required as Celerity Fiber Optic cables are terminated with a small module that plugs directly into the keystone connectors.
Easy two-step installation
Celerity HDMI cables are installed using a simple two-step process. Step one: Pre-wire your setup by running the cable from your source component to your display. Each cable features a separate transmitter and receiver end conveniently pre-terminated with tiny, fiber optic plugs that make it easy to pull.
Unlike thick HDMI cables, Celerity cables are thin and flexible so you can easily run them along baseboards, and install them in concealed locations, conduit, plenum spaces, and cabling raceways.
Step two: Attach the included Celerity keystone connectors to the cable's fiber optic plugs and connect them to Celerity keystone wall plates at either end (wall plates sold separately). The cable's transmitter electronics are powered by current drawn from your source component via its HDMI jack's "hot plug."
Power at the display end of the cable is supplied by via USB. (The Celerity wall plate kit includes an HDMI-to-HDMI/USB cable.) Blue LED power indicators on both connectors light up to verify that your components are powered up and ready to play.

Celerity Technologies: Celerity Technologies develops high performance, easy to use fiber optic products for residential and commercial AV systems. Celerity's first breakthrough innovation, Detachable Fiber Optic HDMI has become successful with professional AV installers for single and multi-room video systems. Celerity's sleek, thin fiber optic cable with detachable HDMI connectors and high bandwidth makes it easy for installation and provides the ultimate video performance.
Detachable Fiber Optical (DFO) HDMI Cable: Celerity's Detachable Fiber Optic (DFO) HDMI cable is designed to solve the installer's and home owner's common problems with long distance HDMI and concealed installations in home and business applications. The Celerity Detachable Fiber Optic (DFO) HDMI cable is an easy-to-use, secure connection for home video distribution, conference room presentation systems, classroom projection systems, and wherever a high definition video display is located. Fiber optics provides the speed and bandwidth needed for the best picture quality for high definition video at lengths up to 1000'; supporting the long distances required in many commercial and consumer video solutions.
Fiber Optics Benefit: Celerity's fiber optic technology converts HDMI into light signals that support today's high-definition and ultra-high definition bandwidth demands of 1080p and 4K, as well a multi-channel audio. Fiber optics work great for sending digital signals which include audio, video and data information. These signals travel faster and farther without degradation over fiber optics, versus copper. There is no loss of signal over long distance and no EMI interference which makes Celerity DFO the best choice for point-to-point and distributed high definition video connections. Celerity DFO HDMI offers the best picture and sound quality without and interference or loss of signal integrity.
Detachable Keystone Transmitter & Receiver: The Celerity Detachable Fiber Optical (DFO) cable includes a detachable Keystone Transmitter & Receiver which easily attach to the miniature fiber optic plugs on each end of the cable after pre-wiring. The small Celerity fiber optic proprietary plugs on each end of the Celerity Fiber Optic cable connect to the detachable Keystone Transmitter & Receiver which easily snap into the Celerity's Keystone Wall Plates (926CTK035V or 926CTK065V - sold separately) and provide a clean in-wall connection for HDMI. The Keystone Transmitter & Receiver each features a female fiber optic proprietary plug and female HDMI jack. The Keystone Wall Plate (sold separately) includes a Celerity HDMI+5VUSB cable which plugs into the Keystone Receiver's HDMI jack, plus a HDMI jack and USB port on back of your TV. A standard HDMI cable can be used to plug into the Transmitter's female HDMI jack.
Note: Celerity Technologies' Fiber Optic Plug terminating each end of the Celerity Fiber Optic HDMI cable supports proprietary technology for HDMI over Celerity Fiber Optical cable. While the plug may appear similar to that of a micro-HDMI or mini-USB connector, it does not support any technical attributes of either connector.
18Gbps Bandwidth Technology for 4K & HDR: Enabled by Celerity's 18Gbps bandwidth technology, 4K/60Hz video performance for HDMI 2.0 is supported in Celerity Fiber Optic HDMI cables for sharp and detailed images on Ultra HDTV displays from 4K/60Hz resolution video sources. Also supporting HDR (High Dynamic Range) video & 36-bit Deep Color, Celerity offers unparalleled HDMI performance for picture quality, color depth and detail. In addition, Celerity DFO HDMI supports 1080p and 3D video.
HDMI Specifications: HDCP, EDID, DDC and CEC requirements are fully supported by Celerity's Detachable Fiber Optic (DFO) HDMI cables to ensure that the full quality HDMI experience is always reliable.
Zero Interference: Celerity Detachable Fiber Optic (DFO) HDMI cables do not pick up interference nor do they create interference to your entertainment system. As all of the signals being carried are optical light signals, they are completely immune to interference and electronic noise. Because Fiber Optic is EMI free, it can be installed with multiple cable pulls.
Easy Installation + Plenum Rated: Celerity Detachable Fiber Optic (DFO) cables are thin, flexible, and easily hidden; plus feature a detachable HDMI connector making it very easy for professional AV technicians and DIY customers to install the fiber optic cable in walls, ceilings, and small conduit runs. All Celerity Fiber Optic cables are plenum rated for safe in-wall installation in your home, office, or building. There are no complicated fiber terminations, special tools, and testing required. And no extenders, baluns or amplifiers are needed either. The Fiber Optic Cable has a pull strength of 60 lbs.
Durable & Flexible Jack: Inside the Celerity Detachable Fiber Optical (DFO) HDMI cable's jacket is a woven layer of very strong yarn to provide durability and pulling strength. The yarn, known as "strength members", protects the tiny, optical glass fibers. The cable jack is also flexible with a bend radius of 0.2" (5mm), which is approximately the diameter of a pencil.
Audio Return Channel (ARC): Celerity is the world's first fiber optic HDMI cable to support Audio Return Channel (ARC). ARC offers the benefit of requiring no additional cables to send sound from a TV to the home AV system for playback through the speakers in the room. For rooms with in-wall, in-ceiling or bookshelf speakers, ARC improves the audio experience tremendously without the need for additional cables or other accessories.
Directional: Celerity DFO HDMI cables are directional and must be installed correctly. Ensure the fiber optical plug and included detachable HDMI connector marked "T" is located at the source component. Ensure that the fiber optic plug and detachable HDMI connector marked "R" is located at the video display.
Power Requirements: The Celerity Detachable Fiber Optical (DFO) cable is very efficient as its power needs are limited to very low levels. Power at the source component (Transmitter) is drawn from the source HDMI connector using the HDMI "hot plug". At the display (Receiver), power is easily connected via a USB port on the TV and with the Celerity HDMI+5VUSB cable included with Celerity's Keystone Wall Plate (926CTK035V or 926CTK065V - sold separately).
Note: In some cases where a USB port on your TV or display is not available, a USB-AC power adapter (sold separately) can be used. The required specification is 5V 1000mA, 50/60Hz 120-240VAC.
