This certification further strengthens Draka’s UC Connect offering of standard and Slimflex cables which already have comprehensive third party approval.
HDBaseT enables a single cable to replace multiple cables and connectors in both the business environment and in home entertainment. The cornerstone of HDBaseT is 5Play, a feature set that converges uncompressed ultra-HD digital audio & video, 100BaseT Ethernet, USB 2.0, up to 100 Watts of power over cable and various control signals through a single cable.
The Draka UC Connect cables to have been recently certified are:
- UC900 SS23 Cat.7 S/FTP
- UC500 S23 Cat.6A U/FTP
- UC400 Cat.6 U/UTP HD
HDBaseT certification offers installers and specifiers the peace of mind that the cables will be interoperable with current and future HDBaseT products.
Product manager for UC Connect, Lee Stokes, said, ‘As part of the Prysmian Group, the world’s leading cable manufacturer, the certification of Draka’s UC Connect cables will ensure their interoperability among current and future HDBaseT products.’
