Press Release - QED Launches HDMI 2.1 Cable Supporting Full 8K Video Content up to 20 Metres

British audio specialists QED introduces its Performance Optical Ultra High Speed HDMI cable, designed to transfer a maximum compressed video resolution of up to 48 Gb/s [email protected] Hz over long cable runs of 7.5 to 20 metres in length. The perfect solution for modern day AV installations, this high-performance HDMI 2.1-certified cable can handle all current HDMI standards, including uncompressed 48 Gb/s [email protected] Hz video resolution, Dolby Atmos audio and HDR (High Dynamic Range) picture technology.

Key features at glance:

- Transfer a maximum compressed video resolution of up to 48 Gb/s [email protected] Hz over long cable runs of 7.5 to 20 metres in length
- HDMI 2.1-certified - cable can handle all current HDMI standards, including uncompressed 48 Gb/s [email protected] Hz video resolution, Dolby Atmos audio and HDR (High Dynamic Range) picture technology.
- Hybrid design combines copper core with optical fibre that resists data degradation over extremely long length
- Reaction to Fire certification - features Low Smoke Zero Halogen jacket for protection against fire

Innovative hybrid design

QED has been designing and engineering superior and award-winning AV analogue and digital cables for nearly five decades and the Performance Optical Ultra High Speed HDMI cable is the culmination of this expertise. The company's innovative Ultra High Speed Active Optical Technology hybrid design combines copper core with optical fibre that resists data degradation over extremely long lengths - all without the need for an external power supply.

Pure copper conductor cables three metres in length or more will cause the 48 Gb/s HDMI signal to breakdown where it would no longer be reliably decoded at the other end. By replacing four of the nineteen copper cores with optical fibre, data transmissions will be unaffected by losses (due to impedance mismatch) or timing variances (due to crosstalk) over longer cable runs.

QED HDMI guarantee

All QED HDMI cables undergo stringent mandatory testing at an HDMI Forum Authorized Testing Centre to not only to ensure compatibility with the new 2.1 video standards but also to ensure low levels of electromagnetic radiation, to reduce the possibility of interference with wireless networks, streaming media players, Bluetooth devices and mobile phones.

The QED Ultra High Speed Active Optical Technology ensures this cable is fully certified, performing at the 48 Gb/s data rate with all the necessary attendant data and control signals demanded by HDMI 2.1 in lengths up to 20 metres - no matter what brand or combination of 2.1-compatible equipment being used.

Compliant with HDCP 2.2 and with full CEC, DDC, HDR, HEC and eARC compatibility, this cable has received the official stamp of approval from the HDMI Forum accredited laboratory in the form of the instantly recognisable Ultra High Speed Certification Program logo on the packaging. Just scan the QR code on the label using the official HDMI app to be reassured that the cable is a genuine QED Ultra Speed Active Optical HDMI cable.

Reaction to Fire certification

Professional installers or AV enthusiasts wishing to conceal the cable within the structure of a building can rest assured the cable's the Low Smoke Zero Halogen jacket and internal components are all certified and fully compliant with the latest EN 50575:2014 regulations. This covers cables for general applications in construction works subject to reaction to fire requirements which are now in force throughout the UK and EU.

Clearly labelled plugs

The integrated circuit is built unobtrusively into the plug at each end of the cable to make the cable easy to run though the fabric of a building. Each plug is clearly labelled 'DISPLAY' and 'SOURCE' to ensure the cable is always installed correctly.

Indeed. Due to my PC being set up on a desk with a keyboard and mouse and thus being a good 5m from a PC I have been buying consoles to game on my TVs given how utterly turd 5m HDMI cables are. They just plain don't work tbh.

Last week I started a play through of FO4 using the hi res texture pack released at the end of 2018. I never even knew it was out. Thing is sitting there on a chair for hours upon hours was really uncomfortable and frustrating when I have a 4k TV like 4m away and couldn't just lay on the bed and play in comfort.

Deffo getting at least one of these for home. Quite possibly one for away too. Much cheaper than buying the new Xbox or PS too.Quote

Expensive but nothing else compares to it really so it's not all that bad considering what it gives you and even the shortest one they sell is probably more than enough for 90% of peopleQuote
