Different Types of HDMI Cables

If you have just had your friend emailing you a funny video and you want to watch this video in its full glory rather than on a small computer or laptop screen, then you would want to “hook” your computer to your LCD or plasma TV and view it on the big screen. There are various types of cables and connections, which you can use to do that, depending on your computer hardware and your TV model, and the HDMI cable is one of them. You can use HDMI cables to connect your computer, gaming console, PlayStation, Xbox, or camcorder to a digital TV, monitor, or video projector. What the cable does is, it transmits uncompressed digital data, using slightly different standards – while the HDMI 1.0 to HDMI 1.2a cables use the EIA/CEA-861-B video standard, the HDMI 1.3+ cables use the CEA-861-D one.

There is a bit of a difference between the more expensive and the cheapest ones as the former are often thicker and could withstand more misuse and abuse, however, you are unlikely to need a super-tough HDMI cable on a first place.

For starters, the HDMI cables transmit digital data, much like the computers do and this results in virtually no loss or distortion of the signal. It is true that for short distances, the Component Video cables will perform just as well – after all, most people would only need a cable, no longer than a few meters for their home for their setups.

What Do HDMI Cables Support?
