2 metre tethering cable
USB C – USB C
Mathorn cables are first and foremost an accessory that gives fast and stable data transfer between camera and computer. Each product prototype was subjected to multiple laboratory and practical tests during photo shoots, using cameras from leading manufacturers and the most popular tethering applications.
This resulted in USB cables that ensure uninterrupted and efficient operation on set, even during intensive use.
High data transfer rates
The Mathorn MTC 20Gbps series tethering cables are made to the USB 3.2 Gen2x2 standard, which has a nominal data transfer rate of 20Gbit/s. Thanks to the highly conductive wires and connectors as well as double shielding of the signal lines, cables provide transfer rates of up to 2000 MB/s.
4K 60Hz video transmission
The Mathorn 20Gbps cable provides full support for the DisplayPort Alternate Mode (DP Alt Mode) standard allowing 4K/60Hz video transmission. This makes the cable ideal for watching films, playing video games or working on high-resolution screens. It also allows you to connect tablets, smartphones and other portable devices to your TV screen.
The Mathorn cables and plugs are made of lightweight PVC plastic with increased flexibility and resistance to mechanical damage. As a result, they are not only more durable than conventional USB cables with similar parameters but also more comfortable to use. The special cushioning of the USB-C connector prevents it from breaking and at the same time reduces the risk of damaging the socket in the camera.
Ergonomics is an extremely important issue when working with the camera. One poorly designed plug significantly complicates or even prevents activity when using more than one cable. For the Mathorn tethering cables, we have designed special, small plugs whose profiled housing ensures that the cable can be connected and disconnected conveniently, minimizing the risk of breaking the USB connector. With various applications and convenience in mind, the Mathorn MTC series cables are available with straight and angled plugs.
When working in a dark photographic studio, the color of the cable is not only a matter of aesthetics, but also safety. For this reason, the Mathorn MTC cables are available in two distinct tones.
Blue shade that we named ArcticBlue is characterized by very good visibility in low light and against a white background. The other one is called Magenta, and its special shade stimulates creativity while making the cable easily visible in all studio environments.
Despite the high visibility, both cables do not reflect on the subjects being photographed, and at the same time shade does not distract people being photographed.
Power rating and fast charging
The Mathorn 20Gbps tethering cables not only provide high data transfer rates, but also the ability to charge connected devices, with a maximum load of up to 100W, using the PowerDelivery 3.0 standard. It can be successfully used to charge and power devices with high power consumption, such as power stations or laptops equipped with a USB-C connector.
