Wireworld previews Starlight Category 8 Ethernet cable at CES 2016
High performance audio and video cable provider, Wireworld Cable Technology, has announced the development of its Starlight Category 8 cables for high-speed media network applications. The cables use a new conductor geometry developed by Wireworld to support higher transmission speed to create lifelike reproduction of streamed music and video.
“Media networks have become the backbone of modern home entertainment systems,” Wireworld President and founder, David Salz, said in a statement. “Starlight's superior transmission speed and reduced noise provide clear improvements in sound and image quality.”
Starlight Ethernet is the first production cable that meets the proposed requirements for Category 8. It is also the first to incorporate Wireworld’s Tite-Shield Technology, created to overcome the limitations of previous network cable designs using twelve tightly spaced shields. (Category 7 cables use six unevenly spaced shields.)
