What are the advantages of HDMI over existing analog video interfaces.
Micro HDMI is a digital interface, it provides the best quality of the video since there are no lossy analog to digital conversions as are required for all analog connections (such as component or S-video). Micro HDMI combines video and multi-channel audio into a single cable, eliminating the cost, complexity, and confusion of multiple cables currently used in A/V systems. This is particularly beneficial when equipment is being upgraded or added. The format of composite video is that of a picture only analog television signal before any sound signal is combined in and both signals are modulated onto an RF Carrier. Digital video will be sharper than component, and eliminates the softness and ghosting found with component. Small, high contrast details such as text bring this difference out the most. devices automatically deliver the most effective format (e.g 480p vs 720p, 16:9 vs 4:3) for the display that it is connected to – eliminating the need for the consumer to scroll through all the format options to guess what looks best. Quality HDMI transfers uncompressed digital audio and video for the highest, crispest image quality.
