RedMere, a supplier of active cable solutions, has introduced a self-powered HDMI long-length embedded active cable booster module to its product set. The module is suitable for boosting the performance of HDMI cables to up to 40 meters for connecting applications running at high speeds.
“Today’s hi-def installations, both in the home and in the office, often involve sources connected to displays which reside in different rooms, or long cable runs to ceiling-mounted projectors," said Peter Smyth, RedMere CEO, in a statement. "With these longer runs come bulky cables, lower performance and reliability, and troublesome power requirements for boosters. RedMere’s new self-powered module extends cable length up to 40 meters (130 feet) while ensuring the highest performance and guaranteed support for all HDMI data rates."
The module uses RedMere’s uEyeWire technology for V1.3 and V1.4 HDMI high speed cables. The cables embed signal processing technology directly into the cable structure to improve bandwidth performance. This chip also adopts innovative power harvesting techniques.
