About QED Performance HDMI Cable
The QED Performance Series HDMI cables have been a popular choice, especially with loyal QED fans. We now have the latest QED Performance HDMI cables on our shelves. Benefiting from the application of design secrets uncovered by their state-of the-art HDMI test suite, the cable delivers very low jitter for accurate timing of picture data. They are also QED's most flexible yet. Built-on the experience QED have gained from designing their previous e-flex cables, QED have been able to further reduce the diameter of this HDMI cable to improve its flexibility, yet maintain its capability to transmit 4K60 video.
QED always connected the Audio Return Channel (ARC) before it was a requirement of the HDMI organisation and since the introduction of the HDMI 1.4 specification in 2009, QED have focused on only manufacturing the highest standard 'High Speed with Ethernet' cables. This policy of only manufacturing the highest specification HDMI cables enable QED to immediately support the new HDMI 2.0 standard introduced a few years ago and certify their cables for 4K60 use.
Premium Cable Certification Program: A few years ago, HDMI.org introduced the new Premium Cables Certification Program. This is not a new cable category and is an addition to the 2.0b specification which has not been changed. Premium Certification offers a difficult to counterfeit guarantee level which promises the consumer a minimum standard of performance. In order to continue providing customers with a range of cables in which they can have the utmost confidence, QED are offering Premium certification on the two most popular length cables - 1.5 metre and 3.0 metre lengths. This is in addition to QED's Lifetime Guarantee.
Consumers can scan the unique QR code on the premium sticker to verify that the cable in their hand is a genuine QED cable, certified to full Premium High Speed 2.0b compliance including support for UHD 4K60, HDR and HDCP 2.2 content protection.
4K 60Hz: With the introduction of the HDMI 2.0 standard in September 2013, the maximum data rate of the HDMI link increased from 10.2Gb/s to 18Gb/s. This was to accommodate the new uncompressed 4K 60Hz video standard (termed 4K60 4:4:4) which required a data rate of 16.06Gb/s. In order to achieve this, the source and display equipment at each end of the cable have to be 2.0 compliant. However the cabling physical layer remained unchanged and this is still the case for version 2.0b introduced in March 2016.
HDR: High Dynamic Range (HDR) support was also introduced with HDMI version 2.0b. With HDR equipment there is a greater contrast ration and more brightness steps to give a smoother picture and more detail in both bright and shadowy areas. A related technology usually associated with HDR is Wide Colour Gamut (WGC), which offers an expanded colour palette.
eFlex: QEDs current cable range has been designed to be as thing and flexible as possible. Gone are the days of large bulky HDMI cables and the latest Performance range is characterised by a sleek black livery with a maximum OD of just 6mm to ensure that it is suitable for use with the slimmest TVs. In reducing the cable diameter, QED have not compromised on the purity of the conductors used, which are still made from 99.999% Oxygen Free Copper.
The Performance range comes in lengths of 1.5 metre, 3.0 metre and 5.0 metre lengths and come with the QED Lifetime Guarantee. QEDs guarantee promises that should one of their cables fail, QED will replace it free of charge for the lifetime of the product. Consumers can rest assured that if they purchase a QED Performance HDMI it will last a lifetime!
The History Of QED
In 1973 Bob Abraham and Ian Vine founded QED Audio Products and changed the way people think about hi-fi cables. By the time QED 79 strand was launched in 1978, it wasn’t considered' just another speaker cable' but a serious hi-fi component. During 1994 QED conducted the most extensive ever scientific investigation into the effects of speaker cable on hi-fi system performance. Read the results in “The Genesis Report”. Hear the results whenever you listen to your favourite music using QED cables.
QED's reputation for innovation and technical excellence is known throughout the world. The latest computer-aided design techniques allow their research and development team to keep pace with technological advances and deliver products that achieve the highest levels of performance and reliability. This is why QED speaker cables are recommended by so many of the world’s leading manufacturers of hi-fi and home theatre equipment. QED is Europe's number one award winning connectivity brand and has won more prestigious cable awards from ‘What Hi-Fi? Sound & Vision’ magazine than any other brand.
QED is the only UK manufacturer able to test HDMI cable designs beyond the scope of the current HDMI 2.0 specification, which means it is uniquely placed to evaluate new technical innovations before deciding whether or not to introduce them into full production. QED has identified cable induced timing error, termed ‘jitter’, as one of the key differentiators between satisfactory and outstanding cables. These findings have enabled them to optimise transmission speed and jitter performance to ensure that both exceed the high standards they set for their Performance cable range.
