Question HDMI cable for 1080, 10m

Could somebody recommend a 10m cable that's certified/HDCP compliant that doesn't cost the earth?
I've been quoted £150'ish for a cable that's of a spec that's beyond what I need - 4K and optical etc.

Thanks :)

If you can let us know your requirements then we can help spec it. 1080P only, 4k, video only or video and audio. What is it going from and what is it going to?

If its for 4K over 10m then RuiPro and the price is about right.

Can do, 1080 only (as title) and no audio. From AV amp to projector. Thanks.

You may be able to use a fibre only and not a hybrid fibre. HDMI cable. I am sure @Joe Fernand can point you in the right direction.

For 1080 only, then an active, copper-only cable should work for 30' (10m). A Premium High Speed cable would be your best bet but they are only certifiable up to 25' (8m), and active cables can't be certified by HDMI.org. If your cable is installed in a conduit, which it should be if not easily accessible, then if you have to try a couple of different cables, it's easier and safer to swap them out. No cable is guaranteed to work 100% of the time in all setups so it's still a little trial and error.

You do not need to worry about using active cables for 1080p at that length, but active is highly recommended for full 4K over 8m. (I have been using the previous version of this cable at 10m for a number of years with no problems whatsoever)

Thanks Bill, this is ideal. I've ordered one :thumbsup:

Install - as Otto says aim to install the cable in a conduit or at least run a suitable pull wire to allow you to easily replace any failed, damaged or obsolete cable.

10m is beyond where any cable can be certified to be 'High Speed' so whilst an 8m version of the cable you link to may have been certified as High Speed the manufacturer is pushing the claims for a 10m version.

Try and test the cable for an hour or two before you install it.

Thanks Joe. In my case it'll be very accessible as the cable will be laid on the carpet between the projector and amplifier for now and disconnected when not in use. I shall remember this advice in case the installation becomes more permanent though.

If you scroll down the listing to the manufactures specs, it does say that for full fat 4K (18Gbs) only the 3m version complies, (So they are not hiding anything) however as the OP only requires 1080p Blue-ray (Which only requires a fraction of that bandwidth) the 10m cable will not even break into a sweat.

The page claims High Speed numerous times and if I scroll down the page it says:

Box Contains
KabelDirekt 10m HDMI Cable compatible with HDMI 2.0a/b, 2.0, 1.4a (Ultra HD, 4K, 3D, Full HD, 1080p, HDR, ARC, Highspeed with Ethernet) - TOP Series’.

As you say for lots of applications it will likely work fine at 1080p though always test any long cable before you install them.
