Five Types of HDMI Cables

Are you planning to buy an HDMI Cable? Not a bad idea at all. With HDMI, you can watch movies and TV shows on the larger screen of your LCD or LED TV. Doesn't make sense?

The concept is very simple really. Say you download a movie from the internet. You have two options now. Option 1 is where you watch the movie on your PC. Option 2 is where you connect your PC to your LCD or LED TV and watch the movie on a larger screen. This connection is done using an HDMI cable.

Now, there are different types of HDMI cables available in the market. Some are technologically more enhanced and some are designed for specific PCs and TVs. So, before you buy a cable, it is important that you get to know about the various types. The guide below should make it easy for you to make your purchase decision.

HDMI Cable 4K

This cable has a resolution of 4,000 pixels. In digital cinematography and digital television, there are many 4K resolutions. The dominant 4K standard in the movie projection industry is Digital Cinema Initiatives or DCI. 4K TVs have yet to make their mark in the mass market.

HDMI Cable 3D

This cable is compatible with 3D TVs. In a 3D TV the depth perception is better because of the use of modern techniques like multi-view display, stereoscopic display, 2D-plus-depth and other forms of 3D display. Some of the modern 3D TVs don't even need glasses for 3D effects.


HDMI Ultra HD Cable

This cable is compatible with Ultra HD TVs. These TVs deliver eight million pixels compared to two million pixels of 1080p Full HD TVs. These TVs offer better clarity and smoothness. However, these TVs are still work in progress and it should be some time before they are released in the market. However, the cable can be used with higher-end TVs available in the market now.

It is best to shop online because you get a pricing advantage. You can also compare the prices across websites and choose from the best seller. For more information over HDMI cable 4K; please visit us- HDMI Ultra HD
