Overview


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.

Pros: Before this hybrid HDMI I was using a high definition wireless link from my A/V receiver to my 4K television. Sewell's light-link provides a seamless connection between my 4K television and the A/V receiver -- the Audio Return Channel (ARC) function is flawless! Now my A/V receiver recognizes the advanced 4K functions and the picture is so much better... even the sound is deeper and richer. Not sure how the ARC handshake improves the surround sound capabilities, but the difference is positively noticeable. Thank you for developing this truly high quality connection. Light-Link is "the" solution for long distance HDMI cable connections.

Cons: None

Other: If you're shopping around and think a conventional HDMI cable with a repeater is the cheaper and better way to go, just think you get what you pay for. . . cheap application equals cheap results. Spring for the all-in-one Light-Link HDMI and you won't be disappointed.

Great product

Works without a booster or repeater which is a plus. Great picture quality. Couldn’t tell any difference in my 6ft hdmi cable vs the 100ft fiber optic cable.
