Datapath launches ActiveConnect cables

Datapath ActiveConnect long-range cables

Datapath has launched a series of long-range fibre optic DisplayPort1.2 and HDMI2.0 cable, with lengths up to 100m.

The ActiveConnect cables require no additional power and measure 7mm in diameter. They are designed to provide a direct connection from any graphics card, including the Datapath ImageDP4, to either DisplayPort or HDMI monitors or from media players to Datapath’s HDMI or DisplayPort capture cards.

Cables offer transmission of full 4K signals at 60 fps. Each cable is HDCP compliant, allowing for protected sources to be carried within the Datapath system. In addition, the cables are Plenum-rated.

They weigh 15 grams pre metre (including connectors) and have a maximum bend radius of 6mm. ActiveConnect cables are available with either DisplayPort1.2 or HDMI2.0 connectors. The DisplayPort is available in 25, 50 and 100 metre lengths, with the HDMI currently available in 25 and 50 metres, with 100m coming soon. The larger sizes are shipped on spindles.
