This Range of Active Optical Cable allow you to run your cable through a very tight space thanks to the removable head providing a micro HDMI connection of approx 8mm in height. This allows you to easily thread through trunking or drill a much smaller than the standard HDMI size end would require at around 19mm making them the perfect choice for a neat install that allows a FULL 4K signal (18gbps) (60Hz).
CL3 Rated Cable! So what exactly is CL3 and do you need it? CL3 rated cables are suitable to install into walls thanks to the low smoke materials these materials help protect the cable against fire and meet building regulations.
Our AOC (Active Optical Cable WITH POWER! ) HDMI cables allow you to run a very thin (cable diameter approx 4.8mm) over extremely long distances. Our range of AOC cables also carry power so no additional adapters are required! The AOC cables run the latest in HDMI technology 4K 18gbps HDR (High dynamic Range 2160P resolutions) at 60HZ with no signal loss.
The additional help of 5V USB! Although it s not usually required these cables have an optional 5V USB connection. As the cables are loaded with HDMI chips in the hood they require power from the source device. Some older devices such as the first generation sky Q boxes output a very low power from the HDMI. Should your device not output a full 5V the provided USB cable may be required.
Protective Installation Hood When installing the cable the housing can often scuff and scratch when feeding through tight spaces. Our cables are supplied with a plastic hood to avoid such issues and easily removed once the installation is complete.
It can be a mind field when it comes to HDMI cables these days. To try to simplify it not all 4K HDMI cables support 18gbps 60 frames 4K resolutions and if they do you re limited to how long you can run the cable. If you re looking for a solution to run the 4K at 60Hz displays from splitters over long distances or bury your cable in the wall then this is the cable for you. The slimline cable design allows for more flexible cable runs compared to ACTIVE COPPER HDMI cables and the fibre optic cable carries the signal faster at longer distances. These cables are also backwardly compatible with previous versions of HDMI.
So what are the advantages of running a fibre optical cable over a copper cable? Fibre cables are much stronger than copper cables and also a lot more flexible. Fibre cables handle weather conditions better than a copper cable ensuring you don t have data stall issues which can cause problems when sending 4K to 18gbps signals over long distances. Overall a fibre cable is more reliable than a copper cable especially over long distances.
