HDMI Cable Confusion For Consumers & The Answers You’re Looking For

hdmi cable 1HDMI cables can be quite expensive, but some researchers are saying most HDMI cables are the same.

In case you didn’t know, the “HDMI” in HDMI cables stands for high definition multimedia Interface. With this one cable, you replace so many cables that would need to be plugged in to your devices. HDMI does indeed make the quality of picture on your T.V. much better, and it is so easy to connect once you purchase it.

The setup is the easiest part when it comes to that pesky cable. The most difficult part is the choosing of the cable. When purchasing a new T.V. or a new blu-ray player, the associate will then direct you to the HDMI cable section. This is where you will lose your mind if you don’t come armed with the right information.

HDMI Goes Mobile

hdmi mobileOne of the most notable dreams in technology has been the seamless integration between computer, television, telephone, and home theater system. With the availability of digital media a new way to transfer and use High Definition video and audio has been moving onto mobile devices, allowing HDMI connections for Smartphones and digital cameras as well as laptop computers and tablet PCs.

Initially the inclusion of mobile HDMI ports onto phones and cameras seemed a niche concept. Transferring video from another source to the tiny screens on phones and tablets seemed unnecessary, while the HDMI output from these devices was often grainy and didn’t convert into true High Definition. As the display capabilities improved and the pixilation of both cameras and phones were increased to record in high definition, internal hard drives also grew. They became capable of carrying the necessary capacity and HD became much more viable as a use with the small devices. All of it carried on a single cable connection between the phone or camera and a High Definition television.

Many Smartphones are able to utilize the highest in HDMI definition, able to broadcast in full 1080i / 1080p with full surround sound to go with the eye popping picture density. They can stream directly from the phone onto the television screen, making shooting home videos instantaneous and turning a Smartphone into nothing less than a professional grade recording device that transforms Christmas morning into a blockbuster affair.

the History of HDMI Cables & Technology

hdmi cable 1Everyone expects technology to change quickly. Many people in this day in age would be disappointed if it didn’t. There is always a new cutting edge contraption right around the corner that could be the silver bullet to make life easier, quicker, cheaper, or more enjoyable. Even so, there are some things that people do not expect to change with the same rapidity, such as cable connections. One of the most maligned and discredited kinds of technology to be consistently ridiculed is the HDMI cable.

The Cable Backstory

HDMI first appeared on the scene in 2002 as a way to replace Component cables as well as carry full digital video and audio on a single cable. Prior to the invention of HDMI, Component cable had been the standard that replaced Co-Ax cable between televisions and their accessories. Co-Ax cable is a prime example of a cable that follows the typical arc of connectivity technology, which is that it is still in use for many purposes. Even satellites are still typically linked to their control boxes via Co-Ax cable.

When Component cable came along, it too lasted for many years as televisions around the globe had to adjust to the new technology. To this day, nearly every television produced still has Component interfaces. Most DVD, Blu-Ray, and gaming systems also have a Component option even today. Like Co-Ax cable, Component video and audio held on for a long time, even as emergent technologies bypassed their usefulness.

Thunderbolt Technology Paints a Speedy Future for HDMI Cables

Thunderbolt HDMI cableIt is time to face facts: The world is addicted to speed. It is also addicted to full immersion in every experience. Every wireless carrier and cable manufacturer is dedicated to making the fastest connectivity available, with the best data transmission rate that also provides the clearest signal. If something is fast, it is good, but to really be worth the money, it also better have the ability to dazzle. From 4G wireless connections, to 3D, to HDMI cables that provide picture and sound for devices that haven’t even been invented yet, the technology race is all about bringing the best and the brightest to the user right now. Ethernet is old news, T3 cable connections don’t give us the data people require, component cables seem silly to most, with their archaic analog technology. The world moves fast, and in order to keep pace, people need to be able to move fast with it.

In the spirit of both speed and quality, Intel has released a new way to transfer data, and they are calling it “Thunderbolt” (formerly “Light Peak”).
