High Speed HDMI with Ethernet transmission
SUPRA launched its first HDMI cable in 2004. Already from the very beginning, the HDMI standard and its contact gave most manufacturers a hard time to achieve perfect performance. Yet many cables were launched claiming fluent transmission, a fact many customers found reason to doubt. When we started our development, we knew how challanging this would become and left nothing to chance.
From the start and on, we have delivered trustworthy HDMI cables, hence our reputation on the installation market, where we supply large quantities to hotels, conference facilities and similar, and where no one overlooks sub-standard performance. Nine years of continuous product development has resulted in the Supra HD5 HDMI Met-S/B, which (according to us) is the best passive HDMI cable there is, offering HDMI High Speed with Ethernet & 4K resolution. We guarantee that our HD5 cable handles HDMI 1080P signals up to 32 meters - passively! We think we are alone to offer this.
We know also the burden of proof, why we test and approve in compliance with the latest test provisions by HDMI´s Accredited Testing Center in the USA - a quality assurance treat to our customers. The bandwidth of the HD5 is 1100MHz, above three (> 3) times the specification of HDMI High Speed (340MHz). There are some interesting esoteric cables out there claiming to do the job but only a few are actually up for the job. Supra High Speed HDMI is.
With the addition of our smart contact Supra Met-B/S, the cable is now possible to route in 20 millimeters conduits including the contact. No more on-site cut and re-soldering, jeopardizing the final top notch performance.

We often meet scepticism when we talk about HDMI cables. ”Does it really matter?” ”I mean, it’s only a data stream? Yes, it is a stream of digital bits. Yes, it does matter. Unfortunately there is an intermediate state before the signal is so corrupt it cannot be read and blanks out/freezes. Many claim that if the screen shows, the signal is good enough. There is, however, circuitry in the receiver which tries to repair broken data stream by buffering and error correction, but this is based on best possible estimates. You might experience sync problems (delays, freezing video moments), distorted colorations, insufficient blackness, noise and other unexplainable artefacts during which the hardware is working overtime trying to repair the fragile bitstream. Do your precious hardware the best possible favour you can by connecting it using Supra HDMI cables and both you and your equipment will be able to fully enjoy/display the show.
