Feature highlight

  • DPL Labs 4K Certification 

The ARQUUS W73 went passes the DPL Labs 4K certification to ensure the support for the full 18Gbps bandwidth from the HDMI 2.0b specification, as well an EMI test to ensure the cable minimizes interference with wireless signals. This certificate ensures full compatibility for 4K/UltraHD products that may include features such as 4K@60Hz, BT.2020 and HDR.


  • Fiber Optic for speed, lightweight and longevity:

While copper cable uses an electric signal to transfer data, fiber optic relies on photons which travels much faster. The added speed benefit means the VIVIFY ARQUUS W73 supports 18Gbps while being a fraction of the weight of copper. In addition, no signal loss is observed with long fiber optic which means the user can create his dream home theater without worrying about the output quality over distance. Lastly, while corrosion might affect the longevity of copper cables, fiber remains unaffected by its environment, thus providing a long-lasting solution.

  • Built-in RGB Lighting

The VIVIFY ARQUUS W73 features a lighting strip built in that allow gamers and AV users to personalize their cables to the color of their choice, as well as a cycle through mode. All manageable via the header touch sensor, the lighting can also be changed by a phone application and the addition of an optional dongle. Cabling with lighting will change the way cables are used in different spaces. Don’t hide your cables, be proud!
