What is HDMI, and what are the benefits?
HDMI stands for high definition multimedia interface. An HDMI cable provides a connection between your converter and HDTV that lets you watch HD programming.
While HDMI is not the only connection option available for HDTV, it does have some advantages:
- HDMI carries both the video and audio signal, eliminating the need for separate audio cables.
- HDMI enables many different connections with very few cables, simplifying the connection process and eliminating the clutter of multiple cables.
- Many new computers and laptops have an HDMI connection, which enables you to use this cable to turn your TV into a computer monitor.
- With a special adapter, HDMI cables can convert to DVI, providing additional connection options.
