High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) cables are the next level in audiovisual cables. An HDMI cable is a digital connector which supports high-definition videos as well as many digital audio channels. All of this is carried on a single HDMI cable. Although HDMI cables were launched years ago, it is only in recent times that people have come to learn their true worth.
Analog cables are known to be a basic option for transferring picture signals in homes. These cables are either composite, S-Video cables or component cables. The latter is known to be the finest quality of analog cables because it systematically divides picture signals into 3 unique cables i.e. blue, red and green.
If you have digital sources such as LCD or plasmas TVs which use analog cable connectors, the sound signals or digital videos must be converted to analog. This enables them to travel via the cable prior to reaching the end where they would be converted again into digital. Sometimes, this tends to compromise signal strength and the quality of output.
