Here's one for you wall mounters out there that are concerned with the slimline aesthetics of their set up. REAL cable have just sent us details of their new HD-E-NANO HDMI cable.

REAL initially designed the lead for mobile because if its skinny proportions but they now say the Nano is suitable for us AV enthusiasts, supporting ethernet, 3D video, Audio Return Channel and 4k x 2k picture resolution. REAL say their Nanotech tech is made possible by 'using specific materials and structure', quite what these specific materials are is unknown. We do know, however, that the Nano uses deoxygenized copper conductors (OFC), double shielding and gold contact connectors with silver soldering though.

The Nano comes in three varieties; Type A: standard HDMI to standard HDMI, Type C: mini HDMI to standard HDMI and Type D: micro HDMI to standard HDMI - we also don't know what has haapened to Type B. All cables will be available from REAL approved UK retailers this month with SRPs ranging from £24.99 for the 0.5m to £49.99 for the 3m length.

In my experience that generally is the case when long runs of HDMI are required; the traditional designs meeting the Cat 2 high speed rating, over say 5m or more, tend to be thicker as they utilise single core cables, rather than multistrand.

Wonder what the max length of these cables is that will meet the high speed rating?
