Premium certified HDMI cabling now available, ensures feature-rich 4K/UltraHD content delivery

May 26, 2016
Smart home specialist Universal Electronics is now offering newly available certified premium high-speed HDMI cables.

Universal Electronics Inc. (NASDAQ: UEIC), a specialist in universal control and sensing technologies for smart homes, announced that its full line of HDMI cables has been certified by the Premium HDMI Cable Certification Program. The new testing and certification program ensures consumers using Universal Electronics’ HDMI cables to connect the latest 4K/UltraHD equipment can enjoy the full potential and feature-rich content of the 4K/UltraHD experience.

“There’s a ton of confusion out there concerning HDMI cables and which ones are the best in delivering the 4K/UltraHD features. The last thing people want is a cable that under-performs and results in service calls, returns, or unhappy customers,” said Lou Hughes, executive vice president, Americas, for Universal Electronics. “With the new Premium HDMI Cable Certification, consumers can have absolute peace-of-mind knowing that our cables will provide the highest quality and speeds to reliably deliver 4K content.”

The Premium HDMI Cable Certification Program is a new program designed to give end users confidence when purchasing new HDMI cables for their 4K/UltraHD products. Through the program, HDMI cables are rigorously tested to ensure they can reliably support the full 18 Gbps bandwidth and delivery of features enabled by the most recent HDMI specification including advanced video formats such as 4K@60Hz, wide color gamut and High Dynamic Range (HDR). The program also incorporates new testing guidelines for EMI levels to minimize unwanted interference with wireless signals.

These tests can only be performed by HDMI Authorized Test Centers (ATCs) that have access to the HDMI specifications, test specs and authorized test equipment. Once testing is complete, the ATCs communicate directly with HDMI Licensing, LLC to certify test results and verify authorized adopters.

“It’s critical that all components in a 4K/UltraHD HDMI-enabled system are fully capable of delivering the high-bandwidth dependent features customers expect from their products,” said Brad Bramy, HDMI Licensing, LLC marketing director. “The launch of Universal Electronics’ new Premium High Speed HDMI Cables ensures its cables are ready for today’s new 4K/UltraHD products and content, and installations will be future-proof for when customers add new upgraded products.”

Universal Electronics is a preferred supplier to many of the nation’s leading video service providers, shipping millions of HDMI cables each year. For more information, visit The newly certified HDMI cables are also available direct to consumers through the company’s e-commerce site,
