New USB–C Cables Are on the Horizon

April 13, 2023 - Lightware’s 8- and 10-meters-long USB–C extender Active Optical Cables (AOC) bring literally more flexibility and durability into AV projects, being compatible with all major operating systems and offering SuperSpeed data rates as well as Ultra HD video transmission.

The cables are equipped with a Screw Lock USB-C plug that ensures a secure connection to the Taurus UCX. The plug is designed to prevent accidental disconnections during operation, providing users with a reliable and stable connection. The product also boasts a 2 lane DisplayPort 1.4 Alt Mode that supports high-resolution video output up to 4K60Hz@HBR3 and 4K30Hz@HBR2. This feature enables users to enjoy sharp and vivid visuals with exceptional clarity and detail.

Moreover, the cables used for the Taurus UCX products are thinner, lighter, and softer than conventional copper cables. Its design reduces cable clutter and enhances the portability of the products. It also offers a 60W / 3A charging capacity and eMarker, allowing for fast charging of laptops, tablets, and phones. Thanks to this, it saves valuable time and enhances the productivity of the users. Lastly, the product supports USB 3 Gen1 5Gbps SuperSpeed that is ideal for high-speed data transfer, such as with 4K webcams and SSD storages. With this feature, users can transfer large files quickly and efficiently.

The cable proved itself to work with great efficiency with our new USB-C capable Taurus UCX as well as with various source devices as mentioned above. Its reliability, build-quality and technical parameters make this accessory our number one choice for projects involving USB-C connectivity.
