Supra HD5 HDMI Digital Video cables
There are currently FOUR tin-plated OFC based versions of the
Supra HDMI cable, that feature two different types of HDMI connectors
plus the NEW Active Optical HDMI cable (link on the left).
* HD5 Met-S for lengths up to 5 metres, which is now being replaced
* UHD8 Met-S for lengths up to 5 metres
* HD5 Standard for lengths up to 15 metres
* HD5 Met-S/B for lengths from 5 metres up to 15 metres
The difference between these cables is in the type of connector
fitted to the cable, as follows:
HDMI cables with "Standard" connector
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.
These are now discontinued but if you still want to buy one of
these cables, see the link at the bottom of the page.
HDMI cables fitted with Met-S and Met-S/B connectors
Supra have designed a new removable 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 removable housings are used on Supra "Met-S" and
"Met-S/B" terminated cables.
The new cable terminations feature a Supra innovation - removable
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.
How you get a bent and too big connector through a small conduit
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
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
* The Met-S versions only included the cable and 2 "straight"
* 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 "braid kit" to
installers for instances where customers require additional angled

The HD5 and UHD8 cables have 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 DisplayPort and HDMI<>DVI and
DVI<>DVI terminated cables too.
Please note: Jenving Technology aB, the manufacturers of Supra
branded HDMI cables, are an official HDMI Adopter company
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.
