We are proud to announce that Elka has received ATC certification for our Ultra High Speed HDMI Cable. Though the HDMI 2.1 Specification and Compliance Testing Specification (CTS) were announced in 2018, the release of CTS2.1 for Category 3 Cables has been on-held until August 31, 2020, and right after the release of CTS2.1 for Category 3 Cables Elka submitted the testing samples to Authorized Testing Center (ATC) for certification. This is a long journey for Elka team and our partner ATCs as we have been working together on the development of Category 3 Cables in the past 2 years, and there will be more cable products certified in the coming months. Please contact Elka team to receive more certification info and marketing supports.
In order to fully compliant with HDMI 2.1 Cat3 Ultra High Speed specification,Elka has invested considerable resources in the development of this new product series. Starting from certified components, Elka team have seriously examined each stage of product development with in-house testing equipment, making sure the craftsmanship meets the high precision of HDMI 2.1 Cat3 cables. In May we employed Simplay Labs to conduct a full set of HDMI 2.1 Cat3 testing for our cables based on the latest draft of HDMI 2.1 Compliance Test Specification (CTS). For your information, a full set of HDMI 2.1 Cat3 testing includes HDMI1.4, HDMI 2.1 and EMI tests.
ELKA is constantly putting emphasis on DisplayPort product development involving cables as well as dongles or adapters. With more and more audio and video interfaces developed, it is conceivable that users sometime need to connect their DisplayPort desktop/computer to a non-DisplayPort display. For example, connecting a DisplayPort device to an HDMI™ display.
A video dongle featuring signal transformation such as a DisplayPort to HDMI dongle can become a solution to this connecting issue. However, it is possible that users could face some display problems when connecting through a video dongle. Those problems include black screen, flickering image, dim image, and so on. A qualified video dongle can not only support signal converting but also make video display accurate and smooth. Interoperability is also a key factor in connecting two different sorts of interfaces together.
Elka got the DP8K certification for its USB 3.1 Type-C to DisplayPort cable in November 2018. It is now available for mass-production starting January 2019.
This cable is designed for bi-directional data transmission. It will be the proper way to connect a USB-C device to a DP monitor or connect a DP device to an Ultra HD monitor embedded with a USB-C port.
Unfortunately, a lot of fake or unqualified Lightning connectors were marketed and that resulted in many terrible explosions when people used or charged their mobile phones. In order to solve this problem, Apple announced that Lightning connector (C48A, C48B) will not be available for submitting any product plan after February 2019 and will be replaced with Lightning (C89) connector and Lightning (C94).
