Product ID: HDMM2MLP
This 2-meter HDMI® cable has been tested in accordance with the Premium HDMI Cable Certification Program. This ensures it’s able to deliver the newest technical features that the latest HDMI specifications have to offer, including enhanced resolutions and protection against EMI interference.
The cable features high-retention HDMI connectors that fasten firmly inside each port. This helps to prevent accidental disconnections and signal loss.
Each cable is labeled with the Premium HDMI Cable authentication, so you can be confident that you are purchasing a high-quality premium cable with guaranteed performance.
The cable supports resolutions of up to [email protected] (3840x2160p) and bandwidths of up to 18Gbps. It also supports HDR (High Dynamic Range) for higher contrast ratio and vivid colors.
With higher resolutions, increased speeds, and sharper images, you can expect an enhanced video experience. The cable is guaranteed to provide the very best HDMI capabilities available today. It’s the perfect cable for creating the ultimate home theater or for providing lifelike digital signage.
Plus, the cable also supports up to 32 uncompressed digital audio channels to provide crystal-clear sound. The cable is also backward compatible with previous HDMI specifications and will work with all of your existing HDMI devices.
The gripping HDMI connectors are ideal for high traffic applications or in environments where vibrations could cause accidental disconnects and picture loss. It works great with wall-mounted equipment and in situations where equipment is frequently moved.
Plug the connectors inside the HDMI ports and the connectors will automatically latch to the inside of the port, there are no special screws or accessories required. The grips will create contact pressure inside the port and ensure that the connectors don't loosen over time.
The cable has undergone rigorous compliance testing and is certified by an HDMI Authorized Test Center to ensure it supports the high-bandwidth enabled features it promises. An EMI test is also performed to ensure the cable minimizes interference with wireless signals.
The HDMM2MLP is backed by StarTech.com's Lifetime Warranty.

When you troubleshoot issues with an HDMI cable, there are some quick tests that you can complete to rule out potential problems. You can test to make sure that the following components are working correctly and are not the source of the issue:
To test your setup components, try the following:
Use the HDMI cable, video source, and video destination in another setup to see if the problem is with the components or the setup.
Use a different HDMI cable, video source, and video destination in your setup to see if the problem persists. Ideally, you should test a component that you know works in another setup.
When you test the HDMI cable, video source, and video destination, it is recommended that you do the following:
Verify that the source resolution matches the capabilities of the video source destination. For example, if the video destination is only capable of 720p, then the video source cannot output 1080p or 1920 x 1080, as that exceeds the capabilities of the video source destination.
Test at a lower resolution, for example, 1024 x 768.
If you are using 4K resolutions, test with a shorter cable.
If you are experiencing issues with audio over HDMI, ensure that the following is true:
The source is set up to output audio over HDMI.
The destination is compatible with the source's audio format.
The destination's volume was raised.
Note: HDMI to DVI cables, adapters and converters do not support audio unless otherwise noted in the Technical Specifications tab on the product page on the StarTech.com website.
You should only use video converters and extenders if it is absolutely necessary to do so. In many cases, most video converters and extenders are not necessary if you purchase the correct cable.
The following table lists the maximum length of cable for common video standards.
|Video standard||Maximum length|
|DisplayPort||50 ft. (15.2m)|
|HDMI||50 ft. (15.2m)|
|DVI||50 ft. (15.2m)|
|VGA||200 ft. (71m)|
Note: StarTech.com offers cables longer than what is listed above, including active cables, which typically include built-in active signal boosters that allow for longer cables. Active cables are specifically designed to exceed the suggested maximum lengths and are tested at the listed specifications (for example, the maximum listed resolution).
Video adapters passively adapt a cable from one connector type to another. Video adapters do not change the signal type, or change the video standard.
Examples of common applications for adapters include the following:
DVI-I to VGA
RCA to BNC
Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort
Couplers (female to female, or male to male)
Note: You can use a coupler to extend a cable for a short distance. However, each coupler that you use can introduce signal loss, which degrades the signal quality.
Video converters actively process and change the signal type from one video standard and convert it to another standard. They are typically used to convert digital to analog and vice versa, but can be used to convert a digital signal to another digital video standard (for example, HDMI to DisplayPort).
Video converters work over short distances from the source to the destination: up to 15 feet or 3 meters.
Video extenders convert an input signal to a higher voltage for transmission over longer distances and then convert the input signal back to the original video standard. The input and the output signal will match on a video extender, as the same video standard is maintained end-to-end. If a cable is extended with adapters or converters, the signal quality degrades.
Note: For more information on using a video adapter or converter with a video extender, see the following FAQ: http://www.startech.com/faq/video_signal_converters_convert_then_extend.
