Description

The Light-Link is an "HDMI over Fiber" cable that sends the video information through optical fiber. Because it uses fiber, it can send the signal instantly with no perceptible latency at longer distances than regular copper HDMI cables.

How it Works

The converters inside the cable heads convert incoming electrical signal into optical on one end, and back into electrical on the other end. The Light-Link is composed of fiber cables and copper cables. The copper cables are used for non-video information such as hot plug detection, grounding, and +5v power. The fiber strands carry all the video information.

The light travels down the fibers using internal reflection, which allows the light to bounce off the cable walls similar to a bobsled. Light travels extremely fast (186,000 miles a second) so the signal arrives almost instantly without losing any quality.  

Better than copper

According to HDMI.org "The longest HDMI cable runs seen to date have been achieved using fiber-optic cable, which is far less susceptible to attenuation and interference than copper. Electrically it is similar to an active cable or Cat 5/6 solution, the principal difference being the higher-quality optical cabling between the transmit and receive connectors. HDMI over fiber is a highly robust solution, effective in cable runs up to 100 meters or more."

Easier than any HDMI extender

Since the optical converters are housed inside the heads of the cable, there is no need for any external repeaters. This also means that there is no need for extra power adapters or patch cables.

The Light-Link eliminates possible points of failure. In a typical HDMI extender setup with baluns you have a total of eight connections:

  • x4 HDMI connections - video source to sender balun and receiver balun to display.
  • x2 RJ45 connections - transmitter balun to receiver balun.
  • x2 power connections - from baluns to power outlets.

That's eight possible things that can get unplugged, plugged in the wrong way, or become defective. With the Light-Link you only have one cable that can be easily verified end to end. Troubleshooting is incredibly easy compared to any other setup.

50' Light-Link Fiber Optic 4K HDMI 2.0 Cable Review

Hello,
I've been putting together a home theater room and finally had the TV and the projector installed by Geek Squad, It took me several months to purchase everything I needed, having the installers was the last project and I was excited to finally put it to use. When we turned on the signal and everything worked except for the projector it was a big let down. We tested all the components and cable signals and the failure was the Sewell Light-Link Fiber Optic 4K HDMI Cable. This cable was installed on the output of Monitor 2 from my Onkyo TX-RZ840 to the Epson 5050Ub Projector. They tested every way possible and it didn't work, We even lowered the signal to 720p and still didn't work. I hope to resolve this issue with Sewell; which I purchased it directly through them. Hopefully the cable is just one bad one that slipped through and hopefully their customer support staff takes care of me when I reach out to them after the Thanksgiving holiday. I will report back when as soon as this is fixed or if I run into issues with the exchange. I sure hope it all goes smooth!

awesome cable

I was nervous, but this 100 foot optic fiber runs the TV from the computer flawlessly. It was the simple answer to my problem. Just make sure you install it the right way as it is directional

The 50 Light-Link Fiber Optic 4K cable is excellent!

I am running a 50 Light-Link Fiber Optic 4K cable to my Optoma UHZ65 and the picture is excellent! This cable eliminates the need for a repeater, which I had to use previously! Well worth the price!
