HDMI technology was launched in 2002 and has revolutionised audiovisual entertainment all over the world. The interface is provided by the HDMI cable. This is the cable that transfers digital signals from one digital device to another.
The digital quality of the audiovisual signal when transferred via a HDMI cable is retained at the highest level. This is possible because the HDMI cable has 19 enclosed wires inside it and can support up to 8 audio channels at one time. These cables transmit digital information at speeds in excess of 10.2 gigabytes per second. This is twice the bandwidth required for transferring high quality audiovisual signals. Discussed here are some features of HDMI.
The outstanding features of HDMI cables
The five different types of HDMI cables available are standard HDMI, standard HDMI with Ethernet, Automotive HDMI, High speed HDMI and high speed HDMI with Ethernet.
The standard HDMI cable transmits 1080i and 720p video quality signals. It improves resolution by a great extent. The standard HDMI cable can be used for DVD players, satellite televisions and digital broadcasting. The Ethernet transmitter counterpart of the standard HDMI cable is used to share high definition internet signals.
Automotive HDMI cables are used for high performance internet transmission. They are made from highly specialised materials. Resolutions in excess of 1080p are best viewed using high speed HDMI cables. The high speed HDMI cable with Ethernet is the most advanced type of cable. It can support the highest resolutions along with 3D and allow the transmission and sharing of internet without an extra cable.
