Source applications for the optical HDMI cables include computers, Blu-ray/DVD, set-top boxes, phones/tables and digital cameras. Display applications for the OptoHD cable may include AV receivers, TV monitors, digital signage, medical, and industrial uses.

"For the user, the cable acts just like a passive plug-and-play HDMI cable," states Cosemi. 

The OptoHD2.0 cable is standalone and does not require power. The EMI/RFI resistant cable supports ARC/HEAC technologies as well as 3D displays.

As further noted by the manufacturer, "Standard passive high-speed HDMI cables cannot carry 4K video much further than 8 meters. Utilizing fiber optics, the OptoHD2.0 cables provide full signal integrity over a 100m distance and offer future-proof bandwidth for the next generation of video displays."
