QED QE6022 Performance Premium HDMI Cable 10m
High Dynamic Range
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.
High Speed HDMI
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.
Active Filter Technology
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).
