AudioQuest Mocha HDMI is a Limited Edition HDMI cable which is exactly the same as the AudioQuest Coffee HDMI, but now for a special price. Supports all latest video standards as 4K, Ultra HD, HDR, 3D, Ethernet and ARC, better know as Audio Return Channel.
AudioQuest Mocha comes in a 1 meter length and is finished in a nice brown/anthracite cloth cover. Connectors are made from platinum for maximum signal transfer.
HDMI 2.0 Spec Basics
HDMI 2.0 Equipment 100% backward compatible with all earlier HDMI standards and features
Max bandwidth increases from 10.2 Gbps to 18 Gbps
4K@50/60 (2160p) video, potential for 3D @4K
Up to 1536kHz audio sample rates
Up to 32 audio channels
The HDMI 2.0 spec does NOT define or require new cables or connectors, according to the information the HDMI Forum has released so far. Although the testing specification for HDMI 2.0 has not yet been established, and there are no cables that can be officially labeled as “HDMI 2.0 Compliant,” HDMI has stated that all current High Speed cables are capable of transmitting 18 Gbps when used with HDMI 2.0 electronics at both ends, and are therefore compatible with all HDMI 2.0 features. This is accomplished using signal processing that will be employed in all HDMI 2.0 hardware. For compatibility with all HDMI 2.0 features, new cables are not required for customers with High Speed cables, including AudioQuest High Speed HDMI cables.
In addition to the fact that HDMI 2.0 equipment will be 100% backward compatible with features from all previous versions of the HDMI spec, it’s also important to note that even when HDMI 2.0 equipment is used, bandwidths above the HDMI 1.4 maximum of 10.2 Gbps aren’t required unless video signals higher than 4K@30p are transmitted over the cable. Currently no such source material is available to consumers. Nearly all movie material at 4K would be 4K@24p for example.
Standard Speed cables will function with HDMI 2.0 electronics, but may not transmit higher bandwidth than they do with current HDMI 1.4 (or earlier) equipment. This means that a Standard Speed cable capable of transmitting 1080p at 16 meters will continue to be capable of transmitting 1080p when used with HDMI 2.0 electronics.
All AudioQuest High Speed HDMI cables (all AQ HDMI cables up to 10 meters) are capable of transmitting 18 Gbps signals, including 4K@60p and 4K 3D, when used with HDMI 2.0 electronics
Standard Speed cables will function with HDMI 2.0 electronics, but may not transmit higher data rates than they do with the current HDMI 1.4 (or earlier) equipment.
HDMI 2.0 electronics are 100% backward compatible with features of all previous HDMI versions
Increased bandwidth of HDMI 2.0 is only required for video signals beyond 4K@30p
HDMI 2.0 displays and electronics will not be widely available until 2014
