New Hybrid Optical HDMI for Long Runs from Straightwire - Special Offer Using Discount Code HDMI10

As you may know conventional HDMI cables are "lossy" in long lengths, usually considered to be in excess of 20ft (6m). Basically this is a loss of performance, which is a particular problem with the highest resolution monitors and projectors, but also affects audio performance.

Straightwire is a long time member of the committee that sets HDMI standards, and is one of the "go to's" for technical information on HDMI specifications. They have released a new hybrid optical HDMI cable called SHOC- Hybrid Optical specifically for use in long runs, in fact the shortest available length is 36ft (11m) with availability up to 165ft (50m).

These cables consist of 4 x optical fibers with special reinforcement materials for durability, combined with multiple conventional conductors and high quality shielding. Minimal variation from the 100 ohm standard is maintained at all lengths and each cable is tested and certified for 18Gbps, eye test, and functionality for 4k, and 3D with Ethernet.

All of this, and they are affordable too, especially at September's special which reduces our already discounted pricing by an extra 10% by using Discount Code HDMI10 when you check out. 

With the special discount, pricing starts at $360 for 11m. Go long!
