Fiber optic HDMI cables are a new, top-of-the-line option for connecting HDMI devices. Using fiber optics technology instead of traditional copper, fiber optic HDMI goes above and beyond the limitations of standard HDMI cables.


Conventional HDMI is made using copper, with multiple smaller copper lines inside the main cable. The main drawback of conventional HDMI is the distance limit. Plain old HDMI caps out at a maximum limit of 65 feet, although depending on the equipment being used, the quality of the cables, and similar factors, issues can start to arise at distances as short as 50 feet.


Up until now, the only workaround to this would be using an extender balun. While baluns are certainly a fine solution, they are more cumbersome than a single HDMI cable and require a bit more work to set up. They can also have issues with maintaining 4k quality, especially over longer distances. Fiber optic HDMI not only lacks those issues but works even better than a standalone copper HDMI cable at peak performance.


How Does Fiber Optic Works?


The new fiber optic HDMI cables are very slim, flexible, and light. They come with detachable connectors to attach the interface to the HDMI ports of your devices.To transmit the HDMI signals, the device has to convert them into pulses of light first. A laser provides light pulses. These pulses travel through fiber optic at a very high speed. At their destination, the light pulses become electrical signals again. Digital devices, as mentioned, can transmit audio and video signals this way. However, these fiber optic HDMI cables allow for the transmission of other signals. Such signals carry additional information.


Why Should You Use Fiber Optic HDMI Cable?


Compared with conventional copper HDMI cables, this type of new cutting-edge HDMI cable can deliver top performance even in very long distances like 1000 feet (304 m). Such long cables are perfectly fine to transmit 4K/8K video of the highest quality together with high-resolution audio
