Go beyond the limitations of traditional HDMI cabling with a hybrid fibre solution.
Avencore Carbon Series HDMI Active Optical Cables offer true 48Gbps throughput at lengths beyond the ability of traditional copper cables. Aside from being a directional cable (with dedicated source and display ends), these cables operate just like a conventional HDMI cable, with no extra power or connections required - just a HDMI Male plug on each end! Avencore's Carbon Series Optical HDMI cables breaks new ground for what was previously thought possible!
Supports HDMI v2.1 abilities including 48Gbps, VFR, HFR, Dynamic HDR, eARC, HDR10+ and more. This amazing 20m cable requires no boosters or extra power of any kind! Compatible with most standard HDMI equipment.
With the dominance of HDR and 4K/8K gaming content in the home theatre market, manufacturers of hardware technology have quickly exceeded the capabilities of copper cables, limiting users to cables of 5 metres or less in order to retain the bandwidth necessary for the biggest picture and best features.
Not so with the Avencore Carbon Series HDMI Active Optical Cable range. Using a fibre optic core, these exceptional cables are impervious to electromagnetic interference and retain maximum bandwidth over all lengths. Unlike other optical HDMI cables, the Carbon Series needs no external power of any kind and can work with all HDMI based systems without special setup requirements.
With full HDMI 2.1 hardware compatibility, you'll retain features like HDR, 32 Channel Audio, Rec. 2020, DSC and more no matter how long your cable is. 8K UHD at 60Hz has never looked so good, and has never gone such a great distance! It's the perfect complement to PlayStation 5 and XBox Series X for 4K 60Hz gaming with HDR!
Carbon Series HDMI Active Optical Cables are also easy to work with, sporting a 5.5mm cable diameter with metal alloy plugs measuring 17x9x36mm plus the obligatory gold plated terminals. Flexibility is also high, with a 25mm bend radius, making them suitable for all installations including for use with VR systems
The Avencore Carbon Series HDMI Active Optical cable range is the ultimate in HDMI cable technology for the 8K era, and is targeted for use with 4K60 systems running HDR content, and for 8K gaming content as well as 4K and 1080p video content over longer distances than regular copper cables can achieve.
Please note that as of 2022 these cables come bundled with a booster from our manufacturer. We feel confident saying that this booster is not needed in almost 100% of cases as we've been selling these cables for years without an issue. In fact, our manufacturer found just one device (a European set top box) which didn't perform at 8K without the booster so decided to include one with every cable, just in case.
