What Is An HDMI Cable?

So what exactly is an HDMI cable and what is it used for? HDMI stands for (High-Definition Multimedia Interface). An HDMI cable is able to transmit the highest resolution signal for audio and video and is capable of 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i and 1080p resolutions. The best thing about an HDMI cable is that it can carry both video and audio signals, including 5.1 surround sound, on a single connection by only using one cable. Without an HDMI cable, you may need to use multiple cables to get both video and audio signals.

Some of the advanced features of an HDMI cable include:
  • 3D support for movies and games
  • Higher resolutions capabilities such as 1440p and 4K
  • Faster refresh rates for a clearer picture, like 120Hz.
  • Deep colors up to millions to trillions of colors
  • Ethernet connectivity, with capability to share internet connections
