4K Cable Performance Verification

As 4K display technology evolves, there is growing concern over the cable’s compliance with performance requirements. Our testing services can help you overcome these challenges by providing third-party Verification of your product’s quality.

As the 4K display technology evolves and becomes more widely accepted in the marketplace, there is growing concern among brand owners, installers, retailers and end-users about the cable’s connecting devices. This is due to a lack of objective guidelines and standards for buyers to reference in selecting and purchasing cable products.These inadequacies have led to major problems. Fortunately, UL has a solution.

We’ve developed a performance Verification program to help mitigate the effects of substandard, counterfeit and self-declared compliant high-speed cables in the supply chain. Our program offers an independent, third-party assessment of compliance with transmission performance requirements of 4K high-speed interface cables. The assessment involves initial qualification testing of these products, as well as ongoing compliance testing via factory and marketplace sampling.


This is a comprehensive program to help end users, retailers, installers and brand owners buy quality products with confidence. Our program uses sophisticated electrical performance tests to verify the integrity of the cable’s high-speed signal transmission and deploys follow-up surveillance programs to help ensure continued compliance with our standards. Even more so, our anti-counterfeiting program and holographic label system sets us apart by establishing a unique identifier for anyone looking to buy a tested and verified 4K high-speed interface cable.
