HDMI Reference Cable

HDMI Reference Cable

In the past, installers wanting a simple way to connect HDMI sources to displays over longer distances—10 meters (33 feet) or more—have had limited options. Long passive copper cables are thick, heavy and inflexible, making them difficult to pull through tight spaces. Copper cables using active electronics for signal processing reduce the bulk but still top out at fairly short lengths. The typical solution for longer HDMI links has been a complex combination of extender boxes and network cabling, requiring field termination, and ongoing maintenance headaches.

Basic Features:

10.2Gbps up to 100m – HDMI High Speed
4K @60Hz (4:2:0) video support
Polymer optical fiber for immunity to fracture failure
No external power supply required
Plenum rated (CMP-OF/FT6) flat cable
Thin and flexible – 0.2” (5mm) bend radius
Patented GigaPOF® technology – Made in the USA

Instead, Chromis’ patented GigaPOF® polymer optical fiber technology enables high-speed HDMI signal transmission in a plug-and-play cable at distances up to 100 meters (330 feet). Active components in the connectors perform the electrical-to-optical signal conversion, drawing power from the same standard HDMI ports as copper cables—no external power connectors or HDMI extenders needed.
