Any idea what this is all about?


The company boasts 21gbps for 75 feet, but given that HDMI 1.3 tops out at 10.2gbps, what is the point? Obviously, I understand they are touting this as a "futureproof" technology and that makes a certain amount of sense, but realistically, what did they use to test this signal and does it really matter?


Why not advertise 10.2gbps over a longer distance?

It's apparently a high speed cable design with a built-in equalizer (ActiveConnect) similar to the equalizer/extender modules that are presently available for standard HDMI cables. The high bandwidth is supposedly needed for future needs such as 16-bit deep color and 3D. It has no immediate application. It matters only to the extend that these future applications will materialize.


They likely just tested the cable at the high frequencies with a signal generator.
