HDMI is the new, smart way to connect your High Definition gadgetry. Any modern entertainment TV, Blu-Ray or games console you buy today will be HDMI ready and all you need are some HDMI cables to get going. What’s great about HDMI is that it isn’t even expensive! Many people don’t realise that they can upgrade their equipment and greatly improve their enjoyment of movies and games, just by buying HDMI leads. Without HDMI leads, your HDTV is just a TV. HDMI leads can be bought online for just a few pounds now so there is no reason everyone can’t enjoy the highest quality TV pictures now.
What makes HDMI so special is that it is digital. This means that there is no signal degradation, if HDMI is connected in HDMI ports, then you will have a perfect picture every time. Older style video cables were subject to interference but crucially, could not physically transmit the high amount of data needed for 1080p picture perfection.
Also, HDMI leads are smaller and less bulky than their predecessors at about the same size as a USB. Remember, even though they are smaller, HDMI have both video and audio capabilities in one single connection.
