QED is proud to present an update to its Performance Active HDMI cable designed specifically for use with Ultra High Definition (UHD) video over cable runs up to 15m in length. QED Performance Active should be used wherever High Speed 4K UHD HDMI performance is required over a long distance link.
There is no need for an external power supply because a patented “power harvesting” technique is used to allow the cable to draw current from the source equipment it is connected to. Like other electronic products QED active cables come with a one year QED Guarantee. Consumers can extend the guarantee period to two years by visiting the QED website and registering the product at the time of purchase.
HDMI version 2.0b, launched in 2016, introduced High Dynamic Range (HDR) support for equipment offering greater contrast ratio and more brightness steps for a smother picture with more detail in both bright and shadowy areas. A related technology usually associated with HDR is Wide Colour Gamut (WCG), which offers an expanded colour palette. Both technologies are supported by the new QED Performance Active HDMI cables.
During manufacture the chip set analyses the four individual 99.999% Oxygen Free Copper twisted pairs to which it is connected and automatically adjusts its filter parameters to optimise the performance of the complete cable assembly. In this way each Performance Active cable is uniquely configured to provide guaranteed High Speed HDMI 2.0b performance over runs up to and including 15m.
The new QED Performance Active HDMI has upgraded Active Filter Technology for full HDMI 2.0b compliance. A dedicated integrated circuit is used that has been especially developed to provide uncompressed UHD 4K60 and HDR performance along with support for other HDMI technologies such as Ethernet, Audio Return Channel (ARC) and HDCP 2.2 content protection.
With the introduction of the HDMI 2.0 standard in 2013 the maximum data rate of the HDMI link increased from 10.2Gb/s to 18Gb/s. This was to accommodate the new uncompressed 4K 60Hz video standard (termed 4K60 4:4:4).
Until now it has been impossible to achieve the data rate necessary to support fully uncompressed UHD video over the long distances required for modern high performance projector and home cinema installations. The maximum uncompressed resolution of the old QED Performance Active cable was 4K30 and although it could convey 4K60 video this was always automatically compressed by the source equipment, usually to 4K60 4:2:0. The new cable is easily capable of transmitting uncompressed 4K60 UHD.
