The High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) is an audio/video interface for transmitting uncompressed digital data using single cable. It transmits digital video, multi-channel surround sound, and control data through a single cable. Use the same technology as DVI.
MAIN USE: to connect components such as a DVD player to a High-definition television (HDTV).
ONE CABLE DOES IT ALL – HDMI technology transmits crystal-clear digital video, multi-channel surround audio, and advanced control data through a single cable. One HDMI cable can replace as many as eleven older cables, making your entertainment system easier to connect and easier to upgrade. You won’t find that level of elegant simplicity in any other connection.
PURE DIGITAL PERFORMANCE – Unlike older cables, an HDMI connection transmits uncompressed audio-video data in 100 percent digital form. That adds up to world-class viewing experience, with pixel-for-pixel video accuracy and audiophile-quality sound.
- System intelligence – HDMI-connected components have the ability to query each other’s capabilities and automatically adjust themselves for optimal viewing. A TV and a DVD player, for example, can auto-negotiate settings like resolution and aspect ratio.
- Advanced features – The HDMI Specification includes support for many advanced functions and capabilities that are helping to change the way we experience home theater, mobile entertainment, and many commercial AV applications – now and in the future.
OPTIONAL FEATURES INCLUDE:
- 3D support for immersive movies and gaming
- Higher resolutions and faster refresh rates for uncompressed video such as 4K60, 4K120, and 8K60/li
- Support for Deep Color and the latest color spaces such as BT .2020, and with 10 or more bits per color and at higher frame rates
- Ethernet connectivity, allowing connected devices to share an Internet connection
- High Dynamic range (HDR)
