HDMI® 2.1 Active Optical Cables (AOC)

HDMI® 2.1 Active Optical Cables

Our HDMI® 2.1 Active Optical Cables (AOC) meet the HDMI 2.1a specification for "Ultra High Speed" and allow for lossless transmission of 4K and 8K resolutions that require high bandwidth between your Source and Display.

Unlike passive (non-powered) HDMI copper wire cables, our HDMI Active Optical Cables have an integrated circuit board which transmits the HDMI signal over optical fiber strands (made of glass) instead of copper wire, resulting in a lossless, ultra high speed transmission on a super-slim, super-flexible, lightweight cable with unmatched bandwidth.

Our HDMI 2.1 cables are "active" because they are powered by the power on the HDMI connector; no external power supply required. Our HDMI Active Optical Cables are not limited by the short distance and low-bandwidth of passive and bulky HDMI copper wire cables and are not susceptible to electro-magnetic interference (EMI) that can cause flickering and signal loss.

In addition, with our HDMI Active Optical Cables cables, you do not need to use category 5 or category 6 (CAT5/6) cables that require expensive transmitters and receivers to send lower bandwidth HDMI signals long distances!

Even if your source and display only support 1080p, consider this cable that provides ultra high speed, super flexibility and low EMI to reduce the possibility of interference with wireless networks, streaming media players, Bluetooth devices and mobile phones.

We also have available our exclusive DisplayPort and DVI Fiber Optic-Active Optical Cables that allow you to send the high-definition and high-bandwidth signals over 300 ft.

Our cables provide 48Gbps bandwidth and are available in lengths from 18 inches to over 300 feet! Available with a PVC jacket, CL2 jacket (suitable for in-wall installations) or plenum jacket.

    Why buy our HDMI 48Gbps Fiber-Optic Cables?
  • Because you want the best possible signal that your Source and Display can support with no loss of signal on short and long distances.
  • Because you do not want flickering or loss of signal from electro-magnetic interference (EMI) that affects copper HDMI cables.
  • Because you want the fastest speed and highest bandwidth!
