HDMI Cables Connectivity Guide

The introduction of high definition televisions brought about a number of technological evolutions. One of the most ground-breaking technologies to come down the digital pike is HDMI. Finally, here was a cable that could transmit uncompressed digital audio and video signals digitally, and word of this convenient cable quickly spread. Throughout the years, new and improved versions have arrived from the HDMI founders including today’s High Speed HDMI with Ethernet. What exactly does the “Speed Rating” of HDMI® cables measure? The speed rating determines a cable’s ability to transfer large amounts of data at certain predetermined time intervals, usually measured in Gigabits per Second (Gbps).
