Dear Tech Support

I want to know if your cables are "High Speed". Are they Category 2 HDMI? You also mention "Up To" 10.2Gbps and "supports high-bandwidth" and "deep clolor". Are these cables Category 2 and tested to perform at speeds of 340Mhz?



Re: High Speed Category 2 HDMI Cables

Thank you for contacting us.

Our cables are 1080p compliant which is synonymous with Category 2 “High Speed”, so yes they are indeed CAT2 High-speed.

Recently, HDMI Licensing, LLC announced that cables would be tested as Standard or High-Speed cables.

Standard (or “category 1”) cables have been tested to perform at speeds of 75Mhz, which is the equivalent of a 1080i signal.

High Speed (or “category 2”) cables have been tested to perform at speeds of 340Mhz, which is the highest bandwidth currently available over an HDMI cable and can successfully handle 1080p signals including those at increased color depths and/or increased refresh rates. High-Speed cables are also able to accommodate higher resolution displays, such as WQXGA cinema monitors (resolution of 2560 x 1600).

The HDMI cables you purchase at www.whatacable.com are all High-Speed Category 2 1080p compliant.

Thank you
The Cable Guy
