Select Active Series High Speed HDMI® Cable with RedMere® Technology, 50ft
Reliably connect your home theater equipment to greater distances than with passive cables using this Select Active Series High Speed HDMI® Cable with RedMere® Technology from Monoprice!
This High Speed HDMI Cable supports the following general features:
- Active signal regeneration to ensure accurate reproduction over longer distances
- 10.2Gbps data throughput
- CL2 in-wall fire safety rating
- 28AWG copper conductors
- Gold plated connectors
It supports the following HDMI features:
- 1080p resolution at 60Hz
- 4K resolution at 24Hz
- 3D video
- HDMI Ethernet Channel
- Audio Return Channel
- Deep Color up to 16-bits per channel
- High Definition Audio, including SA-CD, DVD-Audio, DTS-HD Master Audio™, and Dolby TrueHD™
Note that Active HDMI cables are directional. Check each end for markings indicating whether it should be connected to the source or the display device. Connecting them backwards will not hurt anything, they just won't work until connected properly.
Note also that only one Active HDMI cable should be present in any single cable run, even if using a switch, splitter, or matrix. Connecting multiple active HDMI cables in series will cause them to fail to reliably transmit the video signal because each is trying to do the same thing.
TIP: It is a good idea to test cables and connections before installing them inside a wall. If there are any issues or problems, we can help you resolve them before you spend the time, effort, and expense of installing them inside the walls.

The 60-footers are another storythey won't pass 1080p (at 50 or 60 Hz) 1080i is fine, but not 1080p. Have sent them back twice, but the story is the same: must be a design limit. I tried to get alternate 50' replacements from the higher speed Cabernet series, but they just returned the same product. Still working on getting what I want. I hope in the future Monoprice will post individual specs for the longer lengths that state what resolutions they will pass.
PROS: Rugged cable, not too thick, that runs 1080p 30 feet reliably. Reasonably priced.
CONS: The 60 foot length does not pass 1080p. Wish the website showed which resolutions work with the longer lengths. Also, there appears to be some quality control issues with the 30' length recently.
But after three days, I could no longer establish a connection. One weird symptom is that when the Redmere cable is connected to the Denon e400 receiver and the projector, the receiver will not send any audio to the speakers. When I disconnect the cable from the projector (to switch from HDMI1 to HDMI2), it starts sending audio to the speakers again. To troubleshoot, I connected different devices at both ends of the cable, switched to different ports at both ends of the cable, and verified that connection with a shorter, standard cable was working. The main connection is from the receiver to the projector location, but I also tested a longer receiver to television connection. Neither of the Redmere cables is working. Luckily, I installed multiple CAT-6 cables to the same locations, so HDBASET is an option, and I have a kit on order now.
Bottom line: both cables no longer work. Unfortunately, they are permanently installed in the walls, so I can't easily remove them for a return.
CONS: Stopped working after 3 days of use.
My set up on the "source" end is Onkyo receiver. the "display" end of the cable is Philips LCD. sony bluray and Dish 722 DVR output to the receiver in the closet at the back of my living room. bluray outputs in perfect 1080p video, no artifacts.
well worth the wait. you can rig up multiple cables and equalizers, etc. but if you want a clean HDMI run w/ high speed specs, go with this cable.
PROS: Great Quality
CONS: Much thicker then anticipated
PROS: Shipped fast and worked great
PROS: Cable seems to be well constructed and is very pliable.
CONS: Doesn't pass 1080p or 720p signal reliably
PROS: Relatively thin and supple. Works perfectly
Now my projector is connected to the A/V in the closet on the other side of the room.
I had absolutely no issues with it.
PROS: 50' HDMI works great!
Light weight and easy to route.
