Supra HD5 HDMI Digital Video cables
Supra cables HDMI FAQ

There are currently 3 versions of the award-winning of the HD5 cable, that feature two different types of HDMI connectors.

HDMI Standard cables
The standard cable is fitted with standard HDMI connectors...but these can be awkward to run through conduits, as the connectors are larger than the cables, which requires larger diameter holes for the cable to pass through.


HDMI Met-S and HDMI Met-S/B cables
Supra HF100 Met-S/B HDMI cables

So, Supra have designed a new removeable housing, that allows installers and/or customers to remove the bulky outer shell, leaving just the inner connector, which is factory terminated to the cable.

These removeable housing are usewd on Supra "Met-S" and "Met-S/B" terminated cables.

The new cable terminations feature a Supra innovation - removeable HDMI bodies or "housings", which have TWO basic functions:

1) When the HDMI body is removed, (via two small screws) it allows the cable to be passed through small conduits, which aids installations.




The Trick
How you get a bent and too big connector through a small conduit pipe.

1. Can you pull this connector through a conduit pipe?
2a. All parts are easily detachable.
2b. These are the parts of the disassembled connector.
2c. The soldered part is over-moulded for protection.
3. Nylon braid is used as an aid to pull the cable through the conduit. Fasten the braid to the pulling tool with a knot.
4. Picture showing how much space there is left in the pipe.




5. As you can see, despite the sharply bent pipe, the cable got through, effortlessly.
6. Assembled cable and connector ready for use.


2) The HDMI body is available in TWO shapes - the straight version and the curved version - so the cable can be dressed at the back of the equipment, which then puts less stress on both the cable and the HDMI socket....



The cables are fitted as standard with 2 straight HDMI bodies:

Depending on the version bought, you have a choice of which parts are included:,
*The Met-S versions only included the cable and 2 "straight" HDMI connectors.
*The Met-S/B version also included an extra "angled" housing as well as some strong nylon braid, to allow installers to draw the cable through without damaging it.

Extra housings are also available in a "kit" to installers for instances where customers require additional angled housings.

Background:
The HD5 cable has been purpose designed to run at high resolutions such as 4K as well as the more usual 1080p even over long lengths and without problems.

The HD5 HDMI cable is terminated as HDMI to HDMI (in lengths up to 30 metres) - we also make HDMI<>DVI and DVI<>DVI cable too.

Please note: Jenving Technology aB, the manufacturers of Supra branded HDMI cables, are an official HDMI Adopter company - see the official list here - for the names of all the adopter companies - you may be surprised by the absence of many well-known "cable" brand names - this is because many HDMI cables are made for these companies by third-parties, unlike Jenving who produce the Supra HD5 cable in their own factory in Sweden, which ensures better "hands-on" quality control during the production process.
