30ft 28AWG High Speed HDMI® Cable w/ RedMere® - Black

A High Speed HDMI® Cable with RedMere® from Monoprice is the best way to transmit your High Speed HDMI® signals over the longest distances, while using the thinnest cables possible!

RedMere® technology is a breakthrough in the functionality and efficiency of HDMI® cables. High Speed HDMI® Cables with RedMere® can reliably distribute High Speed signals to much greater distances, up to 65 feet (20 meters) at the full 10.2 Gbps data throughput, as opposed to the 25 foot distance for HDMI® cables without RedMere® technology. This can be done with thinner and lighter cables, which are easier to handle and route through your home theater system and which put less stress on your equipment's HDMI® ports.

Note that HDMI® Cables with RedMere® are directional. One end must be connected to the source device (e.g., blu-ray player) and the other end to the sink/display (e.g., HDTV). Hooking them up backwards will not damage anything, they just won't transmit a signal. Also note that these cables are fully compatible with switches, splitters, matrix devices, etc. They can be used in any application in which a normal HDMI® cable can be used and many applications where HDMI® extenders would otherwise be required!

This cable is CL2 rated, which means that its outer jacket has been designed to burn more slowly, thereby making it safe for use inside or through the walls of residential classed buildings. The CL2 rating ensures that your cable installation complies with fire safety codes and insurance requirements.

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.

This cable supports the following HDMI® features:

1080p Resolution - The High Speed HDMI® Cable has sufficient bandwidth to transfer 1080p video signals between 1080p rated source and sink (display) devices.

HDMI® Ethernet Channel - The HDMI® Ethernet Channel provides 100 Mbps, full-duplex Ethernet traffic along the HDMI® cable, allowing a wired or wireless Ethernet connection on one device to be propagated to other devices. Note that for this feature to be functional, all pieces of equipment between the Ethernet source and the destination must support the HDMI® Ethernet Channel feature.

Audio Return Channel - Normally, your HDMI® cable carries audio information along with the video from a source device (e.g. blu-ray player) to the sink device (display/television). Often times this goes through an AV receiver to drive a home theater audio system. The Audio Return Channel is primarily used to send the audio signal generated by the television when its internal tuner is used, back to the AV receiver, so that you can use your home theater audio system when watching television signals.

3D - 3D is the latest rage for both home theater and gaming. A High Speed HDMI® Cable is capable of handling the high bandwidth requirements of 3D signals.

4K - The 4K resolution is 3840 x 2160 pixels @ 24 Hz, which is four times that of a 1080p display and the same resolution used by state-of-the-art Digital Cinema systems. A High Speed HDMI® Cable is capable of handling the high bandwidth required for 4K support.

Deep Color - The Deep Color feature provides a minimum of 8-bits per color element (24-bits total), providing for a total of over 16 million color variations. Other versions of Deep Color allow for up to 16-bits per element, for a total of 48-bits and over 281 trillion color variations, which really makes your video images come to life!

x.v.Color - x.v.Color is a promotion name given to the products that have the capability to realize a wide color space based on the xvYCC specifications and is a trademark of Sony Corporation. Currently, only AVCHD and Playstation 3 devices support x.v.Color.

High Definition Audio - HDMI® supports a full range of high definition audio types, including SA-CD, DVD-Audio, DTS-HD Master Audio, and Dolby TrueHD.

Nope, this is the first I've heard of RedMere. Seems like a decent cable at a decent price with its greatest attribute being a slimmer and more flexible form.

Didn't know Monoprice was selling these? I have the 45ft Redmere and it works fine... Meaning it supports 3D as advertised. I like the fact that's its a lot less stiff and less diameter than my 22awg monoprice cables

I want a monoprice cable for price reasons, but I need it soon and the timetable is closer to June for when they arrive. Will the cablemart at least be very reliable, as you are paying 3 times as much...

I bought a 35' cable with RedMere from Cable Mart when they were on sale for $119...works perfect, thin, easy install and less strain on your components. Monoprice will have them soon at a much lower price.
