I have 2 questions for Caelin or Grant. Will the Venom HDMI be updated to the full HDMI 2.0 specification to pass 18 GBPS?

Are the cylinders on each end of the Venom HDMI ferrite cores or something similar?

The VENOM HDMI is already compliant to 2.0 specifications.

The cylinders on the cable are filters that reduce 'common-mode' noise that may affect performance.

Thanks for the information. If I understand the HDMI spec correctly, then it should be able to pass 18 Gbps? I ask because, on the packaging of the Venom HDMI I bought 2 years ago, it says 10.2 Gbps.

Oops, sorry I was mistaken. The existing Venom HDMI cannot pass 18Gbps. We are working on a new version that will. This is a good link to read about the subject.

Thanks once again for the information. I am in no hurry to buy a cable. I can wait for you to offer for sale your new version of the Venom HDMI, that can pass 18gbps. I have a new 4K TV, with 12 bit color, etc. I would prefer to buy a cable that will be future proof for a while.

I will be looking out for your new cable.

Yes, we are currently working on a new cable that will support up to 48Gbs.

Around the end of year.
Might be interesting to see how the new product works on the I2S connection of the PS Audio Directstream.

We are working on 2.1 specification. We will make an announcement when it is ready.

The cylinders are common mode noise filters.
