One of the most commonly asked questions relating to HDMI cables is – what equipment is needed in order to use them?
If you aren’t familiar with the technology, HDMI stands for High Definition Multimedia Interface. It is an all-digital connection type specifically designed to carry both high definition audio and video in a single cable. It allows you to connect up your home entertainment system and get the very best from it.
There are three key components you will need to have in order to start enjoying the benefits offered by HDMI cables. These are:
1. An HDMI source, such as a set-top box, games console or a disc player
2. An HDMI-enabled display, like an HD TV or projector
3. The right HDMI cable
Setting up an HDMI cable is quite simple. All you need to do is to connect one end of your HDMI cable to the source device, and the other to the display. However, it is important to choose the right HDMI cable, as different versions offer support for different features and technologies. For example, if you want to enjoy 3D content, you will need HDMI 1.4 cables (the latest version), along with 3D-enabled devices.
