HDMI Capabilities have increased significantly since HDMI was introduced. All generations are backwards compatible. However, not all previous HDMI cables can transmit the full 18Gbps of data required to optimize today’s HDMI equipment. AudioQuest’s Active HDMI cables are guaranteed to exceed the requirements for all possible HDMI 2.0 data streams. Forest HDMI cable is silver-plated to 0.5% of total conductor, providing much of the benefit of solid silver, reducing distortion and digital timing errors. Solid conductors eliminate electrical and magnetic strand interaction. Hard-cell foam (HCF) insulation ensures critical signal pair geometry. The plug’s one-piece metal shield provides demonstrably better performance than normal multi-piece shielding systems. Internal ethernet conductors interconnect Ethernet capable components, and maximize Audio Return Channel performance. Fabricating metal strands causes a directional grain structure. AQ controls the resulting small impedance variation at radio interference frequencies in order to drain noise away from where it will cause distortion.
