About the Austere V Series Active HDMI cable
In today's 4K-based home theaters, conventional HDMI cables sometimes struggle to deliver a flawless picture over lengths greater than a couple meters. Austere's 5-meter HDMI cable uses state-of-the-art active technology to provide optimal visual and audio performance. This cable meets the highest standards of 4K specifications to maximize the picture and sound quality from your audio/video gear.
This is a directional cable: the "source" and "TV" ends are clearly marked to avoid hookup confusion.
Should you get a Premium HDMI cable?
At lengths of a few meters or less, any well-made "high-speed" HDMI cable should work fine in most 4K applications. But if you're connecting an Ultra HD Blu-ray player to a 4K TV — especially a longer run — a Premium HDMI cable will guarantee flawless performance.
