These locking, 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, indoor and outdoor digital signage and kiosks, plus home theatre systems in larger properties.
All cables are supplied with locking connectors which are designed to help secure them in place to prevent disconnection, allowing for a more robust installation versus non-locking HDMI cables.
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.
There are two standard versions of these cables, one terminated with full size locking type A HDMI connectors on both ends and the other terminated with locking micro HDMI type D connectors supplied with adapters to fit full-size, locking type A connectors. Included with the adapter variants are a USB to DC power cable and a cable pulling tool Intended to aid fixed installation; the micro HDMI connectors reduce 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; 38-9332 (Display) and 38-9333 (Source).
