AudioQuest Cherry Cola HDMI Active Optical
AudioQuest Cherry Cola HDMI Active OpticalCherry Cola Hybrid Active Optical Cable (HAOC) uses a newly developed, highly advanced electro-optical conversion module and four glass-fiber optical conductors to reliably carry 18Gbps data packages, including 4K Ultra HD and HDR, for distances up to 100ft/30.5m. AudioQuest's sophisticated Noise-Dissipation System combines RF noise-absorbing carbon and directionally controlled silver-plated drain conductors to minimize the distortion caused by RF interference, ensuring a fully immersive entertainment experience. Further, for applications that require low-smoke, low-flame characteristics, Cherry Cola uses a plenum-rated jacket.
Available Lengths: 5m, 10m, 15m, 20m, 25m, 30m
4K/8KAudioQuest 18Gbps High Speed HDMI cables have the bandwidth required for video up to 8K/30 (8-bit, 4:2:0), which is 7680 x 4320 resolution (over 33 million pixels) at up to 30 frames-per-second (fps). 24 and 30 fps are the frame rates for almost all movies and many TV shows.
HDMI hardware’s previous ARC capabilities max out at lossy (compressed) 5.1-channel surround sound. Not only do all generations of AudioQuest HDMI cables “with Ethernet” support ARC, but in order to ensure superior audio performance, the ARC-channel conductor-pair is internally controlled for direction, running in the opposite direction from the 4 pairs that carry information to the TV. Upcoming HDMI 2.1 hardware supports Enhanced Audio Return Channel (eARC), which increases bandwidth dramatically to support uncompressed and lossless high-resolution multichannel audio, including Dolby TrueHD and Atmos, and DTS-HD Master Audio and DTS: X. All AudioQuest HDMI cables “with Ethernet” have the conductors and bandwidth required for eARC’s enhanced sonic capabilities.
All AudioQuest 18Gbps High Speed HDMI cables are guaranteed to have the 18Gbps bandwidth required for compelling features like 8K/30 video, HDR (High Dynamic Range) imagery, and eARC (enhanced Audio Return Channel).
AudioQuest 18Gbps High Speed HDMI cables support High Dynamic Range (HDR) and Dynamic HDR. HDR content expands the contrast of the image for blacker blacks and brighter whites/highlights as well as greater color saturation and brightness. Dynamic HDR (HDR 10+ and Dolby Vision for example) enables frame-by-frame HDR optimization rather than HDR settings that are fixed for the entire program.
NEWLY DEVELOPED ELECTRO-OPTICAL CONVERSION MODULE
The new-generation active circuitry is significantly more reliable than that of earlier Active Optical Cable (AOC) modules, ensuring outstanding performance for applications up to 100ft/30.5m.
