Hybrid Active HDMI/Optical Cable: This active hybrid
cable contains both fiber optic and copper cores terminated by a HDMI connector
on each end. It allows you to transmit HDMI signals long distances without an
external power supply. With an advanced optical engine
embedded, this hybrid active HDMI/Optical cable provides full HDMI signal
integrity and supports a maximum data rate of
HDMI 2.0b: The active hybrid HDMI/Optical cable is terminated with a
gold-plated HDMI type-A connector on each end and fully complies with the HDMI
2.0b specification. The HDMI 2.0b specification means that it will support data
rates up to 18Gbps, video resolutions up to Ultra HD 4K/60Hz (4:4:4) with 48-bit
color depth (16-bit per channel), as well as lossless HDMI audio formats like
Dolby True HD and DTS-HD. It also supports bi-directional EDID, as well as HDCP
1.4 & 2.2 communication. In addition, the cable is compatible with ARC, HEC, CEC,
Directional: This active hybrid cable can only
be used in one direction. The HDMI type-A connectors are marked with "Source"
and "Display". Each HDMI type-A connector must be plugged into the correct port
to avoid signal loss. Make the appropriate connections with your Source and
Display device turned off.
Note: Do not use any intermediate cables or adapters between the
connections, as the signal transmission performance maybe attenuated.
Passive Power: The active hybrid HDMI/Optical cable is designed for
use with the +5V passive power, supplied through pin 18 on the HDMI connection
from the source device. This +5V connection, as well as powering the internal
fiber optic module, is also carried through to the other sink via a full
standard copper connection. Make sure that your source device is capable of
delivering more than 500mA.
CL3 Rated: The active hybrid HDMI/Optical cable
features a UL rated CL3 approved PVC jacket for safe
in-wall use. It is intended for indoor use only; do not use
it outdoors (contact with moisture must be avoided under all circumstances). The
PVC jacket is also lightweight, flexible, and has a small diameter.
