Know More About Triplett HDMI cable

What is HDMI cable?

HDMI cable is used to connect two devices physically for transferring bulky audio and video files. You can send high resolution video files over this cable which can be connected to laptops, smart televisions, satellite TVs, and more. They are based on standard HDMI technology and this standard is developed and supported by a consortium of electronics manufacturers. This cable has different versions which are important in terms of supporting other HDMI devices. While there are versions starting from 1 to 4.1, the first few versions up to 1.2a are not used much now. The most prevalent ones start from 1.3-1.3a onwards to 2.1. Aside from these versions, there are cable types such as standard, premium, ultra-premium, and so on, based on their features.

What does the HDMI cable do?

It transfers audio and video data from one device to another audiovisual device such as televisions. It works as an interface between the two devices. With this one cable, you can avoid the task of creating a network using multiple cables which may be confusing as well as costly. These cables carry signals from source to destination device. Good quality HDMI cables offer fast transmission of around 60 frames per second along with excellent sound and picture clarity. Also, it is quite easy to use with a simple plugin format.

When should you use a HDMI cable?

If you require high definition videos and audio, using an HDMI cable is a must. However, ensure the components you use to connect are HDMI compatible. For instance, some televisions may support the use of 1.3 or 1.4 versions, while others may support only the latest versions beyond 1.8. This depends on their year of manufacture, features, and functionalities evolved through the years. Also, check the distance between two devices and then decide the length. For instance, a 3-ft. cable is enough to connect a laptop placed adjacent to your television. This is applicable for any other type of short connection runs.

What devices use HDMI cables?

There are various HDMI compatible devices such as televisions, laptops, gaming consoles, play stations, fire sticks, smartphones, video cameras, surveillance system screens, and many other audiovisual equipment which use HDMI cable for signal transmission.

What are the different HDMI connector types?

A, B, C, D, and E are five main types of HDMI connectors. There are standard, mini-HDMI, and micro-HDMI connectors. Type A and B are the most widely used connectors. The connectors also facilitate high speed signal transmission, and some types may have additional capabilities.

Difference between Standard and High Speed HDMI Cables

There are two main types of HDMI cables available in the market - standard and high-speed. While both are designed to transmit high-quality audio and video signals, there are some key differences between the two that the users must understand.

  • Data Transmission Rates:Standard HDMI cables have a lower data transmission rate - 1080i or 720p - compared to high-speed HDMI cables. This indicates that they can support lower video resolutions ideal for basic home theater setups or older devices that do not need high-definition video or audio. In contrary, high-speed HDMI cables are specifically made to handle higher resolutions and faster refresh rates. They have a higher data transmission rate, up to 4K resolution (2160p), which enables them to support 4K Ultra HD video, 3D content, and high-quality audio formats like Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio. These cables are ideal for modern gaming consoles, home theater systems, and other devices that require a higher level of performance.
  • Resolution:Another significant factor to consider is the maximum resolution supported by each type of cable. Standard HDMI cables are typically limited to 1080p resolution, which is enough for most HD TVs and devices. On the other hand, high-speed HDMI cables, can support resolutions up to 4K (2160p) Ultra HD.
  • Compatibility:Both standard and high-speed HDMI cables are backward compatible, meaning they can be used with older devices and lower resolutions. However, a high-speed HDMI cable will offer better performance, whilst also ensuring your set up future-proof. Even if you currently have a standard HDMI device, investing in a high-speed cable guarantee compatibility with future devices and technology advancements.
  • Audio Formats:Standard HDMI cables have the capability to accommodate a wide range of audio formats, including stereo and surround sound options like Dolby Digital and DTS. However, high-speed HDMI cables offer even greater support for advanced audio formats such as Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio. By utilizing high-speed HDMI cables alongside compatible devices, users can enjoy a truly immersive audio experience.
  • HDMI ARC (Audio Return Channel) Support:HDMI ARC, or Audio Return Channel, is a convenient feature that enables audio to be transmitted from a TV to an AV receiver or soundbar without using additional audio cables. This functionality is extremely beneficial when setting up home theater, where minimizing cable clutter is a growing necessity. While certain HDMI cables may not support HDMI ARC, High-speed HDMI cables generally do.
  • Ethernet Channel:An additional distinction between standard and high-speed HDMI cables lies in the inclusion of an Ethernet channel. This noteworthy feature facilitates the exchange of network data among connected devices utilizing the HDMI cable. With a standard HDMI cable, you won't have this capability. On the other hand, high-speed HDMI cables are equipped with an Ethernet channel, enabling smooth transmission without interruption or inconvenience.
