HDMI cables

For HDMI interfaces and DVI interfaces when used with a digital source, the cable assembly (including any line couplers used) must comply with the requirements of a Category 2 cable as defined in the HDMI specification Version 1.3a. This includes meeting the following maximum signal attenuation specifications:

Signal frequency maximum attenuation

825 MHz 5 dB
2,475 MHz 12 dB
4,125 MHz 20 dB
5,100 MHz 25 dB

The maximum length of cable for which these specifications are met depends on the quality of the cable. However, it is unlikely that any cable achieves these specifications at a length greater than 15 meters unless active HDMI/DVI extenders are used. For a given cable quality, the use of passive line couplers reduces the maximum length up to which these requirements are met.

HDMI interfaces are production tested using a 10 meter long cable from the following source: Lindy 10m premium cable

DVI interfaces are production tested using an instance of the 5 meter DVI-I cable supplied with the product.

Microphone cables

StarLeaf supplies standard length microphone cables. However, any good XLR cable works well. Testing at StarLeaf shows good results with up to 100m of high quality cable.
