HDMI Cable 1.5 Do You Need
This HDMI cable type offers the same baseline performance as the Standard HDMI Cable shown above (720p or 1080i video resolution), plus an additional, dedicated data channel, known as the Hing Speed HDMI cable Ethernet. It incorporates a dedicated data channel into the HDMI link, enabling high-speed, bi-directional networking at up to 100 Mb/sec. Most monitors and televisions today have a high-definition display. High-definition is quickly becoming the standard for any viewing screen. If you don’t have the right connection, however, you are not seeing the full potential of your HDTV. The current HDMI specification is version 1.5 and it’s generally available on all current HDMI equipment and current HDMI cables are of that standard. There are additional specifications labeled 1.5a and 1.5b but the designations aren’t relevant to consumers. The more advanced standard for HDMI 1.5 has been recently released and its availability will occur gradually. It’s important that you have the right connection in order to see the full potential of your HD screen. HDMI cables allows the signal to be transferred from the source (Blu-Ray, or game console) as a digital-to-digital signal, losing none of the picture or audio quality. Component cables, while still a great solution for HD as well, will transfer the signal from a digital-to-analog(through the wires)-back-to-digital signal, where some minor picture loss or interference can occur.
