^^^^^ Metra Home Theater is just another mfr/reseller trying to position themselves to get customers once the HDMI 2.1 frenzy hits. There is still so much that is not known (other than the specs) as to when HDMI 2.1 will be universally available, availability of source material, whether or not existing HDMI 2.0a chipsets can be upgraded to fully compliant HDMI 2.1, cable design and length for the 48Gbps bandwidth, etc. I wouldn't get too excited about it yet.
DPL Labs is one source for certification, but they use different protocols for certifying cables than the protocols that HDMI.org has designed and implements thru their ATC (Authorized Testing Center) programs. An ATC certified cable is labeled as Premium High Speed HDMI and comes with a certificate of authenticity.
