Available in length’s of 2, 3 and 5 meters and with a diameter as slim as 3.5mm, this high speed HDMI cable can support data rates of up to 10.2Gbps all while maintaining the latest in 1.4 HDMI compliance. The cable also maintains full HD 3D, 1080p, and 4K2K standards and comes with a built in high speed Ethernet and audio return channel (HEAC).
RedMere’s pioneering active cable technology can enable the HDMI cables to become thinner, lighter and more routable than the traditional HDMI cables. Because of RedMere’s proprietary energy harvesting technology no external power supply is needed. In addition, 80% less copper and 80% less PVC are used in manufacture making it one of the most environmentally friendly active HDMI cables on the market while maintaining maximum output performance.
Available through BUFFALO KOKUYO SUPPLY INC, the High Speed Slim HDMI cable is simple to install and disguise and the slim minimal design of the cable will compliment the modern aesthetics of the contemporary home.
