Perfect Pairings - Austere 4K HDMI

March 26, 2021

Our new reality of living, working, learning, and entertaining all from home has made reliable tech products that keep us connected more important than ever. Not only will Austere 4K HDMI cables amplify the performance of the devices you use every day, they are infused with style to complement your home aesthetic.

Using a high speed HDMI cable is the best way to achieve the picture quality you expect from today's most popular 4K displays, including OLED, QLED, LED and 4K HDR TVs. Our 4K cables are 2.0 HDMI Premium Certified and are guaranteed to handle the 18Gbps bandwidth needed for 4K HDR, the greatest advantage of the 2.0 spec over previous versions. HDR results in brighter more vivid images with greater contrast and a wider array of colors for a picture much closer to what we see in real life.

You may be thinking, what if I'm not using a 2.0 HDMI cable? While you can connect newer TVs and AV components with older cable versions, their capabilities will be limited to the oldest supported HDMI version. By connecting a newer 4K HDTV with anything less than a 2.0 HDMI cable you will be forgoing many of the features you've paid for by upgrading your TV.

Austere recommends our III Series HDMI cable for televisions that sit on a TV stand, in a media center or on a fixed wall mount. If your TV is on an articulating mount, our V Series cable features a LinkFit connector for an extra secure connection.

Streaming Devices

Whether you are subscribed to Netflix, Disney+, Prime Video, or any of the other streaming services, there is more content at our fingertips than ever before.

2021 also has a fantastic lineup of movie releases, many of which are headed straight to streaming devices, something we are especially excited about!

To watch your favorite movies and shows with the highestquality video and sound, use a premium HDMI to connect your streaming devices, such as Apple TV and Roku, to your television.

Austere recommends a 1.5m cable if your streaming device is close to your TV and a 2.5m cable if it is slightly further away.

Sounds Bars & Audio Components

audio components

ARC, which stands for Audio Return Channel, has become a standard for TVs, sound bars, and receivers.

Austere cables are equipped with High Fidelity ARC technology, allowing for two-way communication between your TV and AV components so you can use an HDMI cable as both an input and an audio output. ARC delivers superior audio quality with the added benefit of only having to use a single cable, simplifying setup and reducing cable clutter.

Austere recommends a 1.5m cable for connecting sound bars that sit below a TV and a 2.5m cable for connecting audio components that live in a cabinet.

Laptops and PCs

Working from home and virtual learning do not appear to be going away anytime soon. Our HDMI cables are made for performance and durability, making them ideal for home office devices. Our all-metal gold shielded contacts create a secure fit and the elegant WovenArmor braid will keep your desk looking sleek.

Austere recommends a 1.5m cable for connecting laptops and monitors.
