HDMI Features vs Version

Many people will naively choose the newest version HDMI cable by assuming it must be the best. The latter thinking is totally wrong. Remember the old TV commercial 'Oils ain't oils' by Castrol well think of it like that.

The features of a HDMI cable are pivotal in choosing the correct type for your home theatre or game console.

Acronym for High-Definition Multimedia Interface is HDMI

The four HDMI cable types you should consider are below:

Standard HDMI Cable The Standard HDMI cable is designed to handle most home applications, and is tested to reliably transmit 1080i or 720p video – the HD resolutions that are commonly associated with cable and satellite television, digital broadcast HD, and upscaling DVD players.

Standard HDMI Cable with Ethernet This cable type offers the same baseline performance as the Standard HDMI Cable shown above (720p or 1080i video resolution), plus an additional, dedicated data channel, known as the HDMI Ethernet Channel, for device networking. HDMI Ethernet Channel functionality is only available if both linked devices are HDMI Ethernet Channel-enabled.

High Speed HDMI Cable The High Speed HDMI cable is designed and tested to handle video resolutions of 1080p and beyond, including advanced display technologies such as 4K, 3D, and Deep Color. If you are using any of these technologies, or if you are connecting your 1080p display to a 1080p content source, such as a Blu-ray Disc player, this is the recommended cable.
