Supra HF100 HDMI Met-S/B Digital Video cables
Please note that Supra HF100 2nd generation
HDMI cables have now replaced by the HD5 3rd-generation cables.
Building upon the award-winning of the HF100 cable, there is an
option with regards to the terminations used.
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.
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.
The new cables feature a Supra innovation - removeable HDMI bodies,
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,
but in the pack is both a shaped body as well as some strong nylon
braid, to allow installers to draw the cable through without damaging
Extra housings are also available in a "kit" to installers
for instances where customers require additional curved housings.

The HF100 cable has been purpose designed to run at high resolutions
such as 720p, 1080i and 1080p even over long lengths and without
The HF100 HDMI Met-S/B cable is terminated as HDMI to HDMI (in
lengths up to 15 metres)
All Supra HF100 cables up to 15 metres in length support
Please note: The issue of attenuation (over longer lengths)
affects ALL cable manufacturers to one degree or another -
some offer shorter (than 8 metre) cables while some others are
meeting the v1.3 compliance over much longer lengths by supplying
two (or more) shorter cables and providing an in-line buffer (or
booster amplifier) which receives the incoming signal and then
re-amplifies it to carry the signal over the next cable length.
The HDMI specification allows this "booster" function
as there is a supply voltage on one of the HDMI single lines to
permit active amplification of the transmitted signal.
You should also note that to notice ANY improvement in picture
and/or sound quality (as a result of the v1.3 specification),
EVERY item in the chain, including the encoded signals on the
disc, the player, the cable AND the screen (or projector) MUST
be v1.3 compliant - otherwise, even if one item is NOT v1.3 compliant,
then the picture and sound will run at the v1.2 specification.

The following list shows the product features for Supra HF100
Digital video cable:
Note that the Supra DVI connectors used are Jenving's own design and are
removable and replaceable and made from die-cast aluminium, which give them good
- 4 screened twisted pairs of solid OFC conductors (with a PE foam insulation
layer) improve the High Frequency response for wide-bandwidth and efficient signal
- Heavy Double layer shielding:
1st layer: Aluminium foil, 2nd layer: Aluminium foil, shield signals from external
influences and prevents the digital signal being radiated into nearby components
or other cables
- 0.8 micron thick 24k gold-plated contacts on connectors deliver long term
- Small form factor cable - diameter only 9.5 mm, enabling cable to be easily
Supra's HDMI connectors are factory fitted and cannot be removed or replaced (especially

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 HF100 cable in their own factory in Sweden,
which ensures better "hands-on" quality control during the production
