HDMI (high definition multimedia interface) is a high end cable that enables data transmission. Unlike previous data transmitting cables, HDMI transfers data without compression. This helps in retaining the audio and video quality of the data being transmitted.
Mentioned below are some tips that can help you purchase appropriate HDMI cables for your electronic devices.
Always check for compatibility
It is extremely important to check if the device that you opt for is HDMI capable. You can do this by looking for ports at the rear of the TV set or DVD player. If you face issues, speak to the dealer who will guide you in the purchase of appropriate electronic devices.
You will come across four different versions of HDMI cables. These are HDMI version 1.1, 1.2, 1.2a and 1.3. Check the HDMI version supported by the device you opt for. You can also opt for HDMI adaptors if you already own a device that is not HDMI compatible.
Appropriate HDMI cables for your PlayStation 3
The PlayStation 3 was one of the first devices for which HDMI cables were manufactured. All four versions of HDMI are compatible with the PS3, although you might notice a slight difference in the quality of the audio and video when using version 1.1 as opposed to version 1.3. These cables are also compatible with the Xbox and Xbox 360.
