Select Active Series High Speed HDMI® Cable with RedMere® Technology, 30ft
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.

as for the product and service, all great, i will buy again from you guys for sure.
PROS: Great price, Great product
PROS: 30 feet long and reliable!
Flexible cable, about 5/16" diameter.
Did I mention 30'?
CONS: Black-on-black lettering identifying SOURCE and DISPLAY are hard to read. Wish they had put the lettering in the red part of the connector that says "HDMI". It's much more legible.
There's no excuse for "confusing" the source and destination ends of this cable. They are CLEARLY labelled in two places at each end. You'd have to be unconscious to get this wrong.
One very minor gripe is that the cable is rather thick (7.25mm) and stiff (but it appears to be tough and durable as a result). It comes packaged in a very tight coil and will have taken a curled set by the time you get it. It takes a bit of patience to uncurl it, and some time in a warm room to get it to relax the bend out of it.
I didn't try features such as Ethernet over HDMI and downstream audio, so I can't comment on how well, or if, they work.
PROS: Good construction. Signaling works correctly. Glitch-free audio and video. Source and destination ends are clearly labelled.
CONS: A little on the expensive side, but the quality of construction and materials probably accounts for this.
PROS: 1 piece 30ft. cable
PROS: I have this 30ft RedMere active cable connected from my PC - Receiver (and the receiver has a normal HDMI - TV), and everything works perfectly. Image and sound are both unchanged!
CONS: No cons but I wanted this cord at 20ft, or 25, I didn't need 30ft.
If you're buying for thinness only, basic 26AWG CL2 jacket cables are just a bit thicker (0.33" for PID 2841)
That said, these cables still handle extremely well - flexible with nice overmolds that have asymmetric colors so you can see which way the connector is oriented from a distance.
CONS: Nothing slim about this cable,
PROS: Easier to fish through walls than thick cables, and priced right.
CONS: First cable I got was a dud. Mono price sent a replacement. Worked fine for awhile. Now it doesn't. Meanwhile, a cheap shorter cable works but I need to have the longer cable to fish thru the wall.
PROS: Smaller and flexible.
CONS: The ends of the cable are poorly made and break easily.
