PureLink, a global provider of advanced UHD video signal management solutions, announced today the availability of its new EZH2 Integrated Active Fiber Optic Cables, as part of its HDTools line of switchers, converters, amplifiers and extenders. These new fiber cables support HDMI 2.0 technology and are HDR (High Dynamic Range), HDCP 2.2 and CEC compliant. The cables are available in a variety of lengths, from 10 to 100 meters, and support resolutions of 4K/60 4:4:4 at 18 Gbps.

PureLink has been a pioneer in the engineering and manufacturing of matrix switching systems since its inception in 2001.
