"My wife is a formidable COD player, and she explained to me in detail how much more she was able to see, and how much easier long-distance shots were, given the clarity in the finite details she was able to see now. I was Impressed!"
Why is passive such a big deal? As any installer knows, passive HDMI cables are always preferred over active. In addition to incompatibility issues with other electronics, active cables are directional and will not work if reversed. The active end of the cable must be connected to the display and requires power to supply the on-board electronics; typically, these cables harvest their power from unused TMDS voltages. This method works well as long as the source which drives the 5V line has an adequate output. If the source voltage is too low it will draw down the vital 5 volt line. Passive cables are bi-directional and voltage agnostic, making any long run installation simpler and more stable. The development of the TITAN passive HDMI cable is a result, in part, of Tributaries’ development and application of patented, advanced metallurgical engineering. This new copper formulation has high-frequency conduction characteristics far beyond standard copper. As an HDMI signal operates at very high frequencies it travels on the surface of a conductor with very little depth of penetration. This phenomenon is known as "Skin Effect". TITAN's advanced high-conductivity copper results in lower losses than with standard oxygen-free copper. This design has provided a method of extending the length of an 18G Passive HDMI cable from a previous longest length of 5 meters to the industry’s new, longest length of 10 meters.
Available in various lengths to meet your requirements.
The Titan Series Passive HDMI cable is stocked in each in lengths from 6 meter, 8 meter and 10 meter
