The Chord Active Resolution HDMI cable version 2 uses silver-plated oxygen free copper signal conductors. All lengths now feature heavier gauge silver-plated conductors. Silver-plated conductors are a very good way to carry a high speed signal. Insulation is low loss gas foamed polyethylene and all critical signal conductors are shielded with high frequency effective shielding.
The Active Resolution is fitted with a die-cast gold-plated HDMI plug with a metal body to improve shielding. This is particularly important because the receive end of the cable has a signal enhancing network chipset that significantly improves sound and picture quality. This means that it is important to note the direction arrows on the cable when installing.

The original Active Resolution was designed to work in any situation that requires a long HDMI cable and will carry a high speed (3D & 4K) signal in lengths of up to 20 metres. The new shorter versions have been built with the critical source to processor connection in mind, and is a cable that anyone serious about home cinema should look at and listen to.
Please do read the instructions before installing. The active chip set is fitted within the receive side HDMI plug and it is important to install the cable in the correct direction.
