As an electronic engineer, I am genuinely interested - what exactly is
"digital compliant" cable?

I've seen this said before and am quite interested if anyone has any
links as to what the difference is. Given the distances involved in
using this cable and the fact it has a great big antenna on one end I
would be interested in any claims of improving selectivity or reducing
interference because.
