These active HDMI cables are intended for applications where longer cable-run lengths than those obtainable with standard HDMI cables are required. They take power from the HDMI connection, and a short USB Type-A connection is provided if extra power is required.
They offer a considerably more elegant and cost-effective solution for long cable runs than Cat5E cable with converter box systems.
Cables are available in a range of lengths from 20 to 50 metres; all cables are double shielded with gold-plated type A plugs at both ends. Lengths up to and including 30 metres support up to 4k x 2k resolution at 60Hz; 40 metre up to 4k x 2k at 30Hz; and 50 metre up to 1080p resolution at 60Hz.
The term HDMI v1.4 is no longer used and instead is referred to as High Speed with Ethernet. For further information on HDMI standards, go to www.hdmi.org
Note: These cables can only be used in one direction. The connector marked 'Output' must be connected to the display device such as a TV. Failure to connect the cable in the correct direction will result in no signal.
