The result of this application of engineering prowess is the ground-breaking and staggeringly capable HDMI Active Optical Cable. As the name suggests, this is a hybrid arrangement that combines copper core with optical fibre to create a cable that resists data degradation even over extremely long lengths – and doesn’t require an external power supply to do so. It’s a cable that’s able to handle all current and upcoming HDMI standards, including 48Gb/s 8K @ 60Hz, Dolby Atmos object-based audio, HDR and next-generation games console technologies
too. It’s a cable that can be installed and concealed secure in the knowledge that its durability and compliance with rigorous UK and EU Reaction to Fire regulations mean it will be functioning perfectly years from now.
QED’s five decades of technological expertise, its profound understanding of the requirements and expectations of consumers and installers alike, and its complete commitment to developing the most future-proof HDMI cable possible, all combine to deliver HDMI Active Optical Cable. Able to deal with the extraordinarily complex demands made of HDMI cable today, and with more than enough headroom to handle those changing standards in the future, HDMI Active Optical Cable showcases QED’s brilliantly innovative engineering and unstinting edication to detail – plus, of course, it completely redefines what consumer and installer alike can demand from their audio/video connectivity.
Focused thinking and painstaking development, leading to unrivalled signal integrity, leading to unsurpassed performance and longevity. This has been QED’s modus operandi for its entire existence – and HDMI Active Optical Cable is the latest demonstration of its peerless mastery of design and manufacture.
