Invisible Cables Make Installations Quite Aesthetic

Are your cables showing? Apparently, they don’t have to! Inneos has introduced InvisiCable, a new type of HDMI optical cabling that combines Real4K optical performance with unique aesthetics.  InvisiCable uses a proprietary optical technology that combines multiple wavelengths of light onto a single strand of ultralight translucent SSF fiber optic cable that looks and feels like monofilament fishing line.  Installers can now offer their customers the performance of 18-Gb/s uncompressed video with the aesthetic advantages of a nearly invisible cable.   

In the era of copper cables, the only choice for hiding copper cables was to punch holes in the wall behind your AV equipment and pull the cables through the walls and ceiling.  In older buildings where walls were constructed of brick or concrete, the task of hiding cables was even more difficult.  Enter the era of fiber optics where a single fiber the width of a human hair can carry hundreds of gigabits per second of information.  At six feet away, an InvisiCable becomes difficult to discern against a wall. The ultra-thin translucent cable can also be installed completely out of sight on top of or along baseboards or on top of lintels.

Installers have become accustomed to the labor-intensive effort of punching through walls to install cables.  The ultralight, non-conductive InvisiCable fiber is so thin that installers can simply score the drywall, lay in the fiber, tape and paint.  It comes in two varieties: In Room and Through Wall.

 

InvisiCable In Room

 

The Inneos InvisiCable "In Room" Solution is intended to simplify the cabling installation when the video source and display are in the same room.  This solution includes 75 feet of InvisiCable on our "magic disk" spindle and a set of our award winning Real4K Optical Adapters.  InvisiCable fiber is so small that the magic disk with 75 feet of cable fits into the palm of your hand (2.75 inches x 0.7 inches) and weighs less than 3 ounces. 

 

InvisiCable Through Wall Solution

 

The Inneos InvisiCable "Through Wall" Solution is intended for installations where the video source and the displays are in separate rooms or a long distance apart.  This solution uses InvisiCable for the "in room" portions of the installation (connecting from the wall plate to the source and display) as well as heavier duty "in wall" fiber to be pulled between rooms.  This solution includes two (2) 10-foot InvisiCable fibers plus two (2) optical wall plates, plus 100 feet of "in wall" fiber.  All the fiber is pre-terminated so installers don't have to know anything about fiber to use these solutions.
