Tributaries UHDT TITAN 18G HDMI cable is available in a passive version from six meters, up to ten meters. Why is passive such a big deal? Passive is always liked better overactive because of possible incompatibility issues with other electronic devices. Active cables are directional & will not work if reversed. The active end of the cable will need the power to supply the onboard electronics. The power required is either provided by adding another cable for power or typically, active cables harvest their power from unused TMDS voltages. This method accomplishes the task as long as the source which drives the 5V line has an adequate output. If the device's voltage is too low it will draw down the vital 5-volt line causing signal failure. Passive cables are bi-directional & voltage agnostic, making any long-run installation simpler, plus more stable. The TITAN passive HDMI cable is a result, in part, of Tributaries’ engineering & application of patented, advanced metallurgical design. This new copper formulation has high-frequency conduction characteristics far beyond standard copper. TITAN's advanced high-conductivity copper results in lower losses than with standard oxygen-free copper. This construction has provided a method of extending the length of an 18G Passive HDMI cable from a previous longest length of five meters to the industry’s new, longest length of now ten meters.
The TITAN Series Passive HDMI cable is available in lengths (6 meters, 8 meters & 10 meters)
