Binary™ B6A-Series GripTek™ High Speed HDMI® Cable with Ethernet 5 Meter (16.4 ft)
A long-run HDMI cable that performs better, pulls easier and costs less?! Seems too good to be true, doesn’t it? The secret is the active cable technology that enables it to go the distance while shedding the extra bulk and cost of a thick copper bundle. And since it’s part of the Binary B6 family, you also know it comes packed with innovations like the lowest profile connectors in its class, a flexible easy-pull jacket, and our exclusive GripTek™ design.
How it Works
Big ideas can come from small places – tiny actually – like the integrated circuit built into the display-end connector. No larger than your pinky nail, this high speed chip enables the cable to automatically EQ itself to support advanced video formats over distances that were previously unheard of.
Active – Integrated chip for premium performance over longer distances
High Speed w/ Ethernet – Premium A/V performance with networking
Flexible – Easily bends to make tight turns
Low Profile – 50% smaller connector for thin displays
GripTek™ – Gripping connector for trouble-free performance
Deep Color – Stunning detail with over one billion colors
3D – 3D support to bring the action into your room
1080p – Full HD ready
4K – Ultra-high definition 4Kx2K compatible
Dolby/DTS – Up to 7.1 channels of lossless audio
Audio Return Channel – Sends audio from TV to receiver
While this cable supports 36-bit deep color, in rare cases there can be incompatibilities between sources, switchers and displays. If you experience a lack of picture or video dropouts, disable the 36-bit setting on your source (or set it to 24-bit).
Easier to Use
This active cable is half the weight and half the thickness of traditional long-length cables. Plus it’s a whole lot more flexible, which makes it easier to pull in the wall or snake through conduit. Thanks to an integrated circuit in the display-end connector, this cable stays slim while sending the most advanced video formats over long distances.
Today's super-thin TVs can make bulky HDMI cables difficult - if not impossible - to use. Our B6 Active Series features a source-end connector head that is up to 50% shorter than competitive designs, and a display-end connector that even with an active chip is still smaller than most.
Bending the Rules
Traditional HDMI cables can be stiff, making them tough to route through an articulating mount or rack. We used a proprietary, ultra-flexible jacket compound to make these cables just as flexible as the installations you put them in. A tighter bend radius combined with the low-profile connector can save 1" or more of depth behind the equipment.
GripTek™ Gripping Connector
Common cable-related service calls are easily prevented thanks to GripTek™, Binary's exclusive gripping HDMI connector. Small bumps on the connector create a strong hold and require up to 6 lbs. of pulling force to remove - that's 40% more force than a traditional HDMI connector.
Is the TV located far away from the equipment – say over a fireplace? This long-length HDMI cable is in-wall rated so you can prewire with confidence.
The Need for Speed
Advanced video formats like 1080p, 3D and Deep Color have continued to push the performance requirements of HDMI cables. This licensed B6 Active High Speed HDMI cable not only meets, but exceeds these requirements, with support of 1080p, 3D, 4Kx2K, Deep Color, Dolby TrueHD, DTS HD-Master, Audio Return Channel and Ethernet – all while remaining slimmer than traditional (and lesser performing) long-run cables.
HDMI Ethernet Channel
SmartTV, AppleTV, PS3, BluRay Player... it doesn't take many internet-connected components to end up with a complex local network right there in your "simple" entertainment system. The HDMI Ethernet Channel simplifies all that by sharing your network data stream over the same HDMI cable. This allows high speeds up to 100 Mbps for gaming, Netflix®, Pandora® and other Internet-enabled features.
As Good As Gold
Did you know that humidity in the air can cause electrical connections to corrode over time? To prevent corrosion and deliver the purest possible signal, this B6 cable features 24K gold-plated connectors. Just don't tell the leprechauns in tech support.
