HDMI has really changed the way consumers enjoy their devices. Older style connectivity systems like SCART were suitable for older style technology like CRT TVs and VHS players, but HDMI has shown the way towards digital synchronisation.
With HDMI, all of your HDMI enabled devices can connect to one another, allowing you do to things you might not ever have though possible. HDMI leads can be used to connect HD TVs to BluRay players, allowing the full High definition video and sound to shine through your screen. HDMI leads even allow enhancement of your DVDs because with HDMI’s digital data transmission, the picture quality is upscaled.
But the uses of HDMI go much further. The latest games consoles are all HDMI enabled so even your gaming can look and sound amazing too. Simply switch the standard cables with any HDMI alternative and PS3 and Xbox 360 really go up another level.
HDMI leads send their signals uncompressed and at very high speeds. This means you can use HDMI to transfer data to and from your PCs, replacing slower USB. Put in to practice you can use HDMI to send files from laptop to PC or back again, or you can stream your downloaded content to a TV or Hifi to watch movies or listen to music that was previously stuck on your desktop.
