These active, optical, HDMI 2.0 cables are intended for applications where longer cable-run lengths than those obtainable with standard copper HDMI cables are required. They are also useful where the cable needs to pass through environments with high electrical interference. They offer a considerably more elegant and cost-effective solution for long cable runs than Cat5E cable with converter box systems. Applications include professional AV systems interconnection and indoor and outdoor digital signage and kiosks, plus home theatre systems in larger properties.
These cables are CPR certified Cca, s1, d0 and are available in a range of lengths from 10 to 100 metres. They handle 18Gbps and 4K at 60Hz, with 48-bit colour-depth and 3D capabilities. Audio can be transmitted at 8-channel PCM, Dolby Digital True HD, or DTS-HD Master Audio.
These are terminated with micro HDMI type D connectors and supplied with adapters to fit full-size, type A, HDMI connectors. A USB to DC power cable and a cable pulling tool are also included. Intended to aid fixed installation; the micro HDMI connectors reduces the likelihood of snagging as the cable is pulled through conduit, fed through voids or behind plaster board. Other benefits may include applications where cables must pass through congested and/or small apertures, such as internally wired brackets and mounts.
Replacement adapters are available if required; 38-8692 (Display) & 38-8693 (Source).
