Chord Company Shawline HDMI AOC Cable

Shawline HDMI AOC uses a high-quality chipset at both ends of the cable and the highest OM3 grade (over 10 Gigabit bandwidth) glass fibres rather than the typical OM2 (up to 1 Gigabit bandwidth). Alongside the full 4K/8K HDR picture quality, this premium high-speed cable benefits from improved audio performance and is heavily shielded against HF noise.

Shawline HDMI AOC is available in 1m, 2m, 3m, 5m, 8m, 10m, 15m & 20m standard lengths. Custom lengths of up to 50m are available by special order.
Following concerns that copper-only cable is being stretched to the limit of its capability, for several years, Chord has been exploring optical technology for carrying the ever-more demanding signals required by the latest (and future) players, processors and screens. Unlike TOSLINK cables, where the entire signal is carried down optical fibres, HDMI AOC cable is a hybrid of 7 copper cables and 4 optical fibres. The advantage of optical fibre is that it doesn’t pick up HF noise. The same cannot be said for the copper cables! This potential weakness, coupled with the longer cable lengths involved, means that HF noise on the signal earth is inevitable.
