FSR’s DR-PCB-H Digital Ribbon cables use a proprietary technology to allow high-speed, high-definition HDMI signal transmission over distances of up to 325ft. The cables hybrid fiber/copper structure delivers a speed of 10.2Gbps video bandwidth and can easily handle 1080p full HD, 4Kx2K, 3D, deep color, HDMI-CEC, HDCP, and most newer high-res formats. Features include no external power or special tooling required and cable and connectors that easily fit within a 1in. conduit.

Gefen’s Super Booster cable for high-speed HDMI is a copper cable-based solution available in lengths of 50ft., 75ft., 100ft., 125ft., and 150ft. Super Booster cable for HDMI in lengths of up to 100ft. support these HDMI 1.3 features: lip-sync passthrough, 225MHz (up to 12 bit YUV 444 @ 1080p), deep color, Dolby TrueHD, and DTS Master Audio, and CEC source switching. Also from Gefen are the CL3 copper-based, high-speed HDMI cables. The CL3-rated cable is suitable for in-wall installations and supports HD resolutions up to 1080p with up to eight channels of embedded digital audio. It uses high-quality 24AWG copper conductors to deliver a pristine signal over long distances, and the multi-layer shielding protects signal from electromagnetic interference (EMI).
