HDMI Offers Two Big Benefits...

  • Instead of needing multiple HDMI cable assemblies for the video signal and multiple HDMI cables for the sound signal, HDMI integrates all video and sound signals onto a single, thin cable. It makes it very easy to connect components together.

  • Instead of converting digital signals to analog (to run through the cables) and then back to digital, everything on an HDMI cable assembly remains in its original, uncompressed digital format.
