Lusem’s ‘OxLinx’ series of active, optical, HDMI 2.0 cables are intended for applications where longer cable-run lengths than those obtainable with standard copper HDMI cables are required. They are also useful where the cable needs to pass through environments with high electrical interference. They offer a considerably more elegant and cost-effective solution for long cable runs than Cat5E cable with converter box systems. Applications include professional AV systems interconnection and indoor and outdoor digital signage and kiosks, plus home theatre systems in larger properties. To enable HDMI 2.0 the plug on HDMI type A adapters may require external USB powering for certain equipment.
Cables are available in a range of lengths from 10 to 100 metres; all cables have LSOH (low smoke zero halogen) cable jacket. They handle 18Gbps and 4K at 60Hz, with 8-bit colour-depth and 3D capabilities. Audio can be transmitted at 8-channel PCM, Dolby Digital True HD, or DTS-HD Master Audio.
These are terminated with micro HDMI type D connectors and supplied with adapters to fit full-size, type A, HDMI connectors. Also known as the ‘pluggable’ versions, LHM2-P cables were developed to aid fixed installation; the micro HDMI connectors reducing the likelihood of snagging as the cable is pulled through conduit, fed through voids or behind plaster board. Other benefits may include applications where cables must pass through congested and/or small apertures, such as internally wired brackets and mounts.
Included accessories: Custom, screw-locking, micro HDMI-D to HDMI-A adapters are supplied with LHM2-PL pluggable cables.
(1) LUSEM ACTIVE HDMI2.0 cables may require external power via the included Micro USB to USB cable. By using in conjunction with one or more DVI-D adaptors the cable will no longer be HDMI2.0 compatible but will convey HDMI1.4 signal.
(2) LUSEM LHM2 cables are for fixed installation only and not intended nor suitable for deployable applications.
