AudioQuest Green 16 Meter Forest HDMI Cable - HDMIFOREST16MS
The HDMI standard was created to transfer uncompressed digital audio and video. HDMI cable’s many internal
conductors include communication channels, which allow automatic display and source matching for resolution,
format and aspect ratio.
To transfer full-resolution 1080p video requires using the HDMI interface. Component video outputs are limited to
720p or 1080i.
- SOLID 0.5% SILVER CONDUCTORS: Solid conductors eliminate strand-interaction
distortion and reduce jitter. Solid silver-plated conductors are excellent
for very high-frequency applications, like HDMI audio and video. These signals,
being such a high frequency, travel almost exclusively on the surface of the
conductor. As the surface is made of high-purity silver, the performance is
very close to that of a solid silver cable, but priced much closer to solid
copper cable. This is an incredibly cost effective way of manufacturing very
high-quality HDMI cables.
- FOAMED-POLYETHYLENE INSULATION: Any solid material adjacent to a
conductor is actually part of an imperfect circuit. Wire insulation and circuit
board materials all absorb energy (loss). Some of this energy is stored and
then released as distortion. Forest HDMI uses air-filled Foamed-Polyethylene
Insulation because air absorbs next to no energy and Polyethylene is low-loss
and has a benign distortion profile. Thanks to all the air in Foamed-PE, it
causes much less of the out-of-focus effect common to other materials.
- HIGH SPEED DATA CAPACITY: All AudioQuest HDMI cables up to 10 meters
meet or exceed the 10.2 Gbps maximum data rate for HDMI and are approved High
Speed with Ethernet cables. This means that all AudioQuest cables up to 10
meters are capable of transmitting 100% of the data required for all of HDMI’s
current audio/video features including multichannel high-resolution audio,
1080p and 4k video, and 3D video from Blu-ray. All AQ HDMI cables will deliver
100% of the data required for 120Hz/240Hz/600Hz displays.
- ETHERNET AND AUDIO RETURN CHANNEL ENABLED: All AudioQuest HDMI cables
up to 10 meters are rated High Speed with Ethernet. From 12 meters to 20 meters
AudioQuest HDMI cables are Standard Speed with Ethernet.
- DIRECTIONALITY: All audio cables are directional. The correct direction
is determined by listening to every batch of metal conductors used in every
AudioQuest audio cable. All signal conductors controlled for digital-audio
direction in AudioQuest HDMI cables, and care is even taken to run the conductors
used in the Audio Return Channel in the opposite direction to ensure the best
performance for that application. Arrows are clearly marked on the connectors
to ensure superior sound quality.
- Length: 16 Meters (53.28 Feet)
