HDMI cables were first developed in 2003, and they have evolved over the past decade to provide a universal connection that combines both audio and visual channels into one interface. HDMI, which stands for a high-definition multimedia interface, supports the connection between a device such as a Blu-ray player or cable box and a flat-screen HDTV or projector. The cables are also used for audio equipment such as mixers, recording systems and speakers.
The cable was developed by a partnership of some major electronics companies, including Hitachi, Matsushita (the parent company of Panasonic), Philips, Silicon Image, Sony, Thomson (the parent company of RCA) and Toshiba, which sought to establish a standard connection in the industry. HDMI cables use the same technology as DVI cables. DVI, or digital visual interface, is the digital connection standard in the PC environment. HDMI simply takes DVI and adds an audio component, support for different colour space and a few other components all in a smaller connector. HDMI cables have become so well recognized that PCs and monitors sold today come with both an HDMI port and a DVI port from which to choose.
Prior to HDMI cables, each electronics company used various analogue connections such as VGA, radio frequency and coaxial cable. HDMI combines video and audio interfaces into one connection, which simplifies the installation process of a home-entertainment system. The digital cable also substantially improves the quality of the picture and sound for everyone by providing the first standardized compact interface for transmitting this digital data in an uncompressed format.
Inside HDMI cables are conductors for both the audio and visual components. Both audio and visual components also have an audio return channel, which increases the speed and efficiency of their signals. Most conductors and the solder used to meld the conductors and connectors together are composed oxygen-free, high-purity copper, although some use silver as a solder. Silver and copper are the metals with the highest conductivity properties, but they also corrode when exposed to the atmosphere. The green tarnishing in copper and the dark grey tarnish in silver that can happen over time would affect the metals’ conductivity. When the copper and silver that are used inside a cable are the highest grades possible, they have less chance of oxidizing or corroding over time.
On the outside, the standard cable connectors consist of 19 pins. The best HDMI cables coat the pins and external cap with 24-karat gold a metal that resists corrosion very well and acts as a protector. Various materials are used for the external sheath that extends the length of the cable but these usually consist of various thicknesses of durable PVC plastic. Shorter cables can be more flexible, but longer cables, such as those used for in-wall installation, must be firmer to maintain the connection. HDMI cables were designed for long distances, and the best cables will support a connection up to 10 meters (32.8 feet) without the use of a repeater, a device that works to extend the signal.
HDMI cables have evolved over the past decade. The type A version of a high-speed HDMI 1.4 cable has a minimum bandwidth of 10.2 Gbps (gigabits per second) and supports a 1080p, high-definition screen resolution. However, the best cables support 3D and other advanced color spaces, which require a higher bandwidth and resolution. Mini HDMI cables, the type C version, support portable devices. They were designed under the HDMI 1.3 specification an earlier version of the cables that support 720p. Mini cables have smaller connectors, but they still contain the 19-pin design of the larger cables.
Many of the cables available today also include Ethernet, which provides an internet connection in addition to the audio and visual components. The Ethernet connection does not affect the audio-visual components of the cable. As many devices that use HDMI cables today have the ability to connect to the internet, the Ethernet component simply eliminates the need for an additional cable or wireless connection. However, HDMI cables with Ethernet only work with devices that support the technology.
The best HDMI cables are future-proofed for technologies just on the horizon. The cables have standardized the uncompressed, audio-visual digital connection. They are used by many electronic devices today and have improved the picture and sound experience for everyone.
“Good quality HDMI cables have better RF screening by using thin aluminium foil and copper wire braiding around the individual cores. This is essential to protect the very high frequencies used in HDMI connections from interference from nearby mains cables, WiFi routers etc. My GTP Hydroponics Basic HDMI cable was to replace a cheap cable which caused the TV to lose the sound and video for a few seconds every time my refrigerator in the adjacent kitchen turned on! The problem was fixed by using this new cable.
Highly recommend this HDMI cable over other cables because of its good quality and attractive price.”
“Don’t do many reviews but wanted to let fellow ps4 pro and Xbox one X owners know these work a treat for 4k hdr. Have tried a few so called high speed HDMI and have had trouble with signal dropping off and losing picture for a second or two on both my consoles. Not good when playing on cod or forza . Anyway I purchased these 3 of these 1.8 m HDMI leads and they work a treat a last. Was starting to give up playing in 4k. They are a bit thick and rigid but at least I can now game in 4k hdr.”
“Not much to say about these. They aren’t very exciting, but they work and there’s no point wasting your money on anything more expensive.
People who tell you expensive cables are better than cheap ones are kidding themselves. With digital signals like HDMI your devices either get the signal or they don’t – you could make a connection using old coke cans and a pair of scissors and if there was a signal path it’d be as good as a ‘premium’ cable made of pure silver.
So, don’t be a mug – use cheap cables :-)“
About Gone To Pot
Established in 2012, we started Gone To Pot Hydroponics in a small industrial unit no bigger than 700 square feet. After just one year we had outgrown the shop and moved onto a new property in a nearby industrial estate. After just another year we needed more space and moved into our current unit. With over 2000 product lines over 2 floors, we have every piece of growing equipment you could ever need.
We have been helping beginners and pro’s to build, set-up and care for their grow rooms. We pride ourselves on maintaining a fantastic range of fantastic hydroponic products and brands at our Peterborough store, stocked with just as much expertise! We are always happy to help you giving advice on anything from nutrients, to what size fan you may need for your growing area.
