The Atlas Hyper Digital audio/video high speed ‘Active’ HDMI with Ethernet. A wideband ‘active’ digital cable developed to meet the highest performance standards over lengths of up to 15m. Passive HDMI cables have a natural limitation, that being the attenuation characteristics of the base cable. Once the optimum length has been exceeded an exponential increase in data errors occur. Typically we consider around 8-10m is the maximum length for a passive HDMI cable, under the less-demanding HDMI 1.4a specification (lower resolution & bandwidth than the newer HDMI 2.0 requirements). To meet the more stringent performance requirements (ultra high resolution & wide bandwith) of HDMI 2.0, Atlas has implemented ‘Active’ HDMI technology. Sophisticated electronics are built into the ‘Display’ end of the cable, which effectively extends the operational performance of longer cables. This adaptive technology is used effectively to keep the cable’s outside diameter to a reasonable size whilst extending the length of the cable. The ‘Active’ Hyper 4K HDMI is available in 10, 12 and 15m lengths with no loss of performance. Coupled with our installation grade precision connectors, Hyper is superbly suited to ‘high-end’ video installations. As you’d expect given our passion for audio, the Hyper 4k HDMI is designed to give optimum sound qualty. Atlas’ expertise in world-class digital audio interconnects means ‘jitter’ (signal-degrading digital ‘noise’) is kept to extremely low levels.
- HDMI Plug: Precision one piece die-cast metal headshell for improved cable retention, 360° screening for improved RF integrity.
- OFC: OFC (Oxygen Free Copper) was developed based on research that sound quality was related to the quality of copper and the processing used during cable manufacture.
- Data PEF, Power HDPE: HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) has a more close-packed structure compared to its more flexible cousin LDPE (Low Density PE) and excels in its durability.
- Multi-core: Active – 24 AWG multicore cable. The ‘active’ components reduce the error correction processing required by any digital receiver.
