What is HDMI?

HDMI is a modern digital video standard used to transfer digital video, audio and control signals from one device to another, all through a single cable.

Because of its high picture quality and the simplicity of an all-in-one cable, HDMI has quickly become popular for connecting various home entertainment components such as flat-screen TVs, beamers, audio receivers and other digital playback devices such as a set-top box, Apple TV and Blu-ray player.

HDMI is short for High-Definition Multimedia Interface and is the successor and extension of the DVI-D standard that uses the same signal encoding. Whereas DVI-D is only used to transfer a digital image signal, HDMI offers a number of additional options that make using an HDMI connection and cable very attractive in practice.

HDMI options

.

In addition to transferring high-resolution HD (High Definition) image signal that now runs up to 8K video, HDMI is also capable of transferring un-compressed stereo or compressed surround signal. This leaves you with only a single cable for interconnecting home entertainment components.

HDMI also offers a number of convenient additional options for data transfer, remote control signals and anti-copy protection. Below we'll take a closer look at some of the important options often mentioned with an HDMI cable.

The HDMI cable

.

An HDMI cable is a passive cable. This means that there are no chips or other active components in a standard HDMI cable. Because of this, an HDMI cable automatically supports the various encodings, image formats and other image options such as anti-copy protection.

A number of options are part of the HDMI standard itself, but (because an HDMI cable is a passive cable and it transmits the video and audio signal unchanged) are not relevant when choosing the HDMI cable itself. Below we discuss the options and indicate whether this option affects cable choice.

HDMI version and supported resolution

.

One of the most important options of an HDMI cable is the supported bandwidth. This is directly related to the maximum resolution supported by the cable. In turn, the maximum resolution supported is defined by the HDMI version.

HDMI has several versions, with versions 1.4, 2.0 and 2.1 currently being the most important and widely used versions. Version 1.4 is the oldest in this list and version 2.1 is the newest HDMI version.

A newer version supports higher resolution and higher refresh rate for a more detailed picture. In addition, each new HDMI version offers another set of enhancements to existing features and options.

When choosing your new HDMI cable, it is important to pay attention to the HDMI version of the equipment to be connected and choose an HDMI cable that has at least the version of the equipment you are connecting.

The resolution supported directly affects the bandwidth of the signal. The higher the resolution of the supported HDMI signal, the higher the required bandwidth. The construction and material used of an HDMI cable determine the maximum bandwidth the cable supports, thus also the maximum resolution supported and thus the HDMI version the cable supports.

Connecting HDMI computer monitor

HDMI is not only used in the home entertainment world, but is also becoming increasingly popular in the computer world for connecting computer monitors.

For this purpose, HDMI supports the Display Data Channel (DDC for short), which is a collection of a number of protocols used by monitors to relay supported resolutions and refresh rates. With this information, a computer or laptop can automatically choose the most appropriate settings for passing the video signal to the monitor. In this way, you automatically take advantage of the maximum image performance of both your computer and your HDMI-equipped monitor.

Which HDMI cable version do you need?

If you connect devices with different HDMI versions to each other, then the lowest version is leading when choosing the HDMI version of the cable.

It is not a problem to purchase an HDMI cable with a higher version. Therefore, many people choose an HDMI cable with a version equal to the highest version of the available equipment. This has the advantage that if you replace one of your home theater components with equipment with a higher HDMI version, you will already own HDMI cables that support the minimum required bandwidth.

In addition to indicating HDMI cables with the version number, there is also a trend to indicate HDMI cables with the maximum resolution supported. This designation is not 100% foolproof because there is some overlap between versions, and high resolution and low refresh will suffice with a lower version.

In practice, the following resolutions and corresponding HDMI versions are often used. If you choose a cable based on the information in this table, you are always on the safe side. If you want to know exactly which version you need, please consult the detailed table below this article.

Resolution Max refresh rate HDMI version Bandwidth
HD 144 Hz 1.4 10.2 Gb/s
4K 60 Hz 2.0 18 Gb/s
4K and 8K 120 Hz 2.1 48 Gb/s

Because all cable versions are backward compatible, if you are unsure which version you need, you can always choose an HDMI cable with the highest version available. You may be slightly more expensive, but you can always be sure that your equipment will perform optimally and enjoy the highest possible image quality that your equipment can offer.

HDMI cables with HDMI logo

.

The HDMI logo is a protected logo. Manufacturers wishing to use the HDMI logo on their equipment, cables and packaging must join the HDMI consortium and have their cables and equipment tested by the consortium. Only after type approval is obtained may a manufacturer use the HDMI logo. When you buy a cable with the HDMI logo, you know you have a properly functioning cable in your hands.

HDMI terms explained

.

When choosing HDMI equipment and HDMI cables, you will encounter many different specifications and terms that can lead to confusion. Above we have already explained bandwidth and resolution, but what do all these other terms mean? We list the most important terms below and tell you whether or not the HDMI term or specification mentioned is important when choosing the right HDMI cable.

Audio Return Channel (ARC)

Audio Return Channel, or ARC, was introduced with HDMI version 1.4 and is a particularly useful feature if you have multiple HDMI devices paired together, such as an Apple TV or Blu-ray player, a flat-screen TV and an audio receiver for displaying surround sound.

In this setup, the image and video signal is passed to the flat-screen TV and decoded there. In this setup, the audio signal should not be reproduced by the flat-screen TV, but by the surround sound receiver. Since HDMI version 1.4, a flat-screen TV has the option of passing the decoded audio signal from the HDMI cable to the receiver via the Audio Return Channel. So there is no need to connect an additional audio cable.

ARC is part of HDMI since version 1.4 and is therefore supported by all HDMI cables with version 1.4, 2.0 and 2.1. For completeness, we put with every HDMI cable in our webshop whether a cable supports ARC.

HDMI Ethernet Channel (HEC)

HDMI Ethernet Channel for short HEC was introduced into HDMI along with Audio Return Channel ARC with version 1.4. It connects all connected HDMI devices via 100 Mb/s Ethernet and allows them to exchange data such as program data. If a smart TV is connected to the Internet, then other connected devices can also use the Internet via the HDMI Ethernet Channel connection to retrieve information or updates online, for example.

HEC and ARC use the same wire pair, which is why the abbreviations HEC and ARC are often combined to form HEAC.

Enhanced Audio Return Channel (eARC)

With the advent of HDMI 2.1, a new Enhanced Audio Return Channel option shortened to eARC was introduced. This option provides bandwidth approximately 37 times higher than standard ARC offers and uses the 100 Mb/s Ethernet channel of an HDMI cable.

Via eARC it is possible to take advantage of the latest audio formats such as Dolby Atmos, Dolby True HD. DTS-HD Master Audio and DTS:X, which require more bandwidth than standard ARC can provide. eARC is only available on HDMI 2.1 compliant equipment. When connecting HDMI 2.1 equipment, choose at least an HDMI 2.1 cable.

Consumer Electronics Control (CEC)

The Consumer Electronics Control option abbreviated CEC has been around since HDMI version 1.0. CEC is a convenient option supported by many HDMI devices.

If your HDMI-connected devices are equipped with CEC, then CEC enables these devices to exchange control signals between themselves. You can then use the remote control of your TV or beamer to turn on all connected devices and start a movie.

TMDS signal encoding

.

HDMI by default uses Transition Minimized Differential Signaling (TMDS) signal coding to transmit the combined digital video and audio signal. The TMDS encoding ensures robust and stable signal transmission over the HDMI cable.

Four shielded wire pairs are used to transmit the TMDS encoded signal. Every standard HDMI cable, regardless of version, features these four wire pairs.

As explained earlier, the quality of these wire pairs determines the maximum bandwidth of the signal that can be transmitted over a cable. The higher this maximum bandwidth, the higher the maximum usable resolution, the higher the HDMI version of the cable.

Copy protection HDCP

.

High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection, HDCP for short, ensures that HDCP-protected content can only be viewed on HDCP-authorized equipment.

HDCP-protected content is transmitted encrypted over an HDMI cable, preventing easy copying of that content.

Now the question is, "Is any HDMI cable capable of transmitting HDCP-protected content, or do I need a special cable for this?" The answer is simple. You can use any standard HDMI cable. Because an HDMI cable is a passive cable and contains no chips, it does not matter to the cable what kind of signal is being transported and whether or not it is HDCP protected.

High Dynamic Range (HDR) video

High Dynamic Range abbreviated HDR is a video format with a larger color palette, higher white values and deeper blacks. As a result, HDR offers a much more beautiful and intense image than a Standard Dynamic Range (SDR) video signal. HDR has been supported since HDMI version 2.0a and is especially interesting with 4 and 8K video. The big difference between an HDR and an SDR signal is the way the video signal is digitized.

To enjoy HDR movies and videos, the video or movie must have been shot in HDR and your equipment and flat screen or beamer must be compatible with the HDR standard used.

Because a standard HDMI 2.0 and 2.1 cable is a passive cable and contains no chips, the cable does not affect the video signal and will pass both an SDR and HDR signal from one device to another without difficulty.

Options available in HDMI 2.1 devices

.

There are some other new options available only for equipment running HDMI version 2.1. Manufacturers are not required to include these options in equipment operating to the HDMI 2.1 standard. We briefly list these new options:

  • Variable Refresh Rate (VRR);
  • Quick Media Switching (QMS);
  • Quick Frame Transport (QFT);
  • Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM);
  • Display Stream Compression (DSC).

These are all signal and signaling options, and because a standard HDMI 2.1 cable is a passive cable, it is only necessary that you connect HDMI 2.1 equipment with an HDMI 2.1 cable to take advantage of the high resolution and additional options offered by your equipment.

Types of HDMI connectors

.

When choosing an HDMI cable, not only is the HDMI version important, but it is also important that you choose a cable with the right HDMI plug.

There are three types of commonly used HDMI plugs:

  • standard HDMI plug, or HDMI-A plug;
  • mini HDMI plug, or HDMI-C plug;
  • micro HDMI plug, or HDMI-D.

These three HDMI connectors have the same number of jacks and the same capabilities, but are different sizes.

Standard HDMI-A connector

.

The most commonly used HDMI plug is the standard A plug. The plug is 14.5 mm wide and 4.5 mm thick. You encounter the standard type A plug a lot in home entertainment systems and components where there is enough space for this plug.

Mini HDMI-C plug

The HDMI-C mini plug has a width of 10.5 mm and thickness of 2.5 mm and is widely used on camcorders and cameras to connect them directly to a flat-screen TV, monitor or projector. This allows you to directly view your photos or videos on a large screen without the intervention of a computer or laptop.

Micro HDMI-D plug

.

The HDMI-D plug, with its width of 5.8 mm and thickness of 2.2 mm, is about the same size as a micro USB plug. This HDMI connector is used on thin portable devices such as smartphones and tablets that you can connect directly to a flat screen or projector using this connector. This allows you to view movies, photos and self-recorded videos directly on a large screen.

HDMI plugs in places with limited space

.

There are situations in which a standard straight HDMI plug takes up too much space. Consider a flat-screen TV that you place flush against or hang on a wall and home theater equipment that is set up so that there is little room at the back.

For this situation, we sell cables and adapters with angled plugs. An HDMI cable with an angled plug no longer sticks out, but runs flush along the back of a device. Note that an angled HDMI plug usually does not fit into devices that have recessed HDMI connectors.

Less common HDMI plugs

.

In addition to these commonly used plug types, there are two less common HDMI plugs, the HDMI B and E plugs.

The HDMI dual link or HDMI B plug has three additional data channels, but is rarely used in practice. The HDMI E plug was developed for the automotive industry and has a locking mechanism to prevent the plug from coming loose.

Special HDMI cables

.

With us you will also find some types of HDMI cables for circumstances where a normal HDMI cable will not suffice.

Flat HDMI cable

.

A standard HDMI cable is round. This cable suffices in many different situations, except if you want to lay the cable under a carpet. Especially for this situation, we also have flat HDMI cables. The flat HDMI cable is suitable for HDMI version 1.4 and available in lengths from 1 to 10 meters.

HDMI slimline cable

.

If you are looking for a thin and flexible HDMI cable, choose the HDMI slimline cable. The slimline cable has a diameter of only 3.2 mm, making it a lot thinner and lighter than the standard HDMI cable. This is a handy cable for mobile use and in places where a normal HDMI cable is too thick and stiff.

HDMI cables with ferrite core

.

HF or High Frequency Interference is an annoying phenomenon where the sheath of an HDMI cable inadvertently acts as an antenna. Two types of HF interference can be distinguished:

  • HF interference from outside by other devices;
  • HF interference caused by the equipment itself.

In the case of external HF interference, the jacket of the HDMI cable acts as a receiving antenna and picks up signals from neighboring devices, such as the HF signal from a smartphone.

In the case of HF interference caused by the equipment itself, the sheath of an HDMI cable unintentionally acts as a transmitting antenna and thus influences other equipment. This effect is sometimes observed with inexpensive equipment that itself has insufficient shielding.

Both types of interference can be effectively suppressed by using an HDMI cable with a ferrite core. This HDMI cable has a thickening on both sides near the plug that contains a ferrite core. This ferrite core provides a high impedance to the sheath of an HDMI cable, effectively suppressing HF currents that cause interference and preventing the sheath of the HDMI cable from acting as a transmitting or receiving antenna.

The normal HDMI signal passing through the HDMI cable via the wire pairs will pass the ferrite core undisturbed. Thus, a ferrite core does not adversely affect the HDMI signal itself.

HDMI converter cables, HDMI adapters and HDMI converters

.

Do you have equipment with a different connection and want to connect it to an HDMI input or output?

HDMI to mini and micro converters and cables

.

To connect equipment with a mini or micro HDMI plug to a standard HDMI connector, you need a cable with a standard HDMI A plug on one end and an HDMI mini C or micro D plug on the other.

You have two options to choose from:

  • an HDMI cable with a fixed HDMI mini or micro plug at one end;
  • a standard HDMI cable that includes an adapter plug from standard HDMI to HDMI mini or micro.

Note: For cables that you plug in regularly, we recommend buying a cable with a fixed HDMI mini or micro plug because it is less fragile.

HDMI converters: advantages and disadvantages

.

For occasional use, you can opt for a standard HDMI cable and an adapter plug from the standard HDMI A plug to an HDMI mini or micro plug. This combination is longer than a cable with a fixed HDMI mini or micro plug and therefore protrudes further. The combination is also more fragile, as the length increases the mechanical stress on both the cable and the device connector.

Reverse HDMI mini and micro adapter plug

.

Do you have an HDMI cable with a mini or micro plug and want to use it temporarily for a standard HDMI connection? You can. With an HDMI mini or micro to standard HDMI A plug, you can use this cable as a standard HDMI cable. Please note that the adapter plug makes the plug longer, so the cable will protrude further.

HDMI converter cables and HDMI adapters

.

If you want to connect equipment with an HDMI connector to equipment that does not have an HDMI connector, you will need an adapter or an adapter to successfully pair the devices together.

There are two types of adapter options:

  • active adapter option, this is called an HDMI adapter;
  • passive adapter option, this is called an HDMI converter cable.

There are many different types of converter cables and adapters on the market. With us, you will find a wide selection of HDMI converter cables and adapters. Below is an overview.

USB-C to HDMI converter cable

.

More and more laptops and computers are equipped with the modern and fast USB-C connection. The USB-C connection is capable of transporting data at high speed, as well as providing a laptop with enough power to charge its built-in battery.v

The USB-C connection can also be used to connect a monitor. This uses the USB-C alternate mode (Alt mode) to transfer a video signal. In USB-C alternate mode, the USB-C data driver switches from sending a data signal to sending an HDMI video signal. Almost all modern laptops feature USB-C Alt mode so you can effortlessly connect a monitor to a USB-C output.

A USB connector has a built-in chip. The chip in a USB-C to HDMI cable tells the laptop to send not a data signal, but an HDMI signal. So you don't have to do anything else. Connecting the cable to your laptop and your HDMI monitor signals the laptop to switch to Alt mode. After this, the monitor and laptop exchange data on maximum resolution and refresh rate, and your computer automatically chooses the settings that give the best picture quality.

Note that a USB-C to HDMI cable only works in one direction, from USB-C to HDMI.

DisplayPort and HDMI

There are several ways to connect DisplayPort and HDMI devices. Which cable you need depends on your equipment and the direction of the video signal.

  • Is the DisplayPort device equipped with a dual mode DisplayPort (with DP++ logo) or a single mode DisplayPort (without the DP++ logo).

What is the direction of the video signal?

  • Connect an HDMI monitor to a DisplayPort: DisplayPort => HDMI;
  • connect a DisplayPort monitor to an HDMI port: HDMI => DisplayPort.

Connect HDMI monitor to DisplayPort

.

If a laptop is equipped with dual mode DisplayPort (DP++), you can use a low-cost passive DisplayPort to HDMI cable to connect an HDMI monitor, flat-screen TV or projector. The DisplayPort driver in your laptop will automatically detect that an HDMI monitor is connected and switch the signal encoding from DisplayPort to HDMI. Then monitor and computers will exchange data on maximum resolution and refresh rate, and your computer will automatically choose the settings that give the best picture quality.

If you computer is equipped with a single mode DisplayPort port then you need an active DisplayPort to HDMI adapter with built-in chip, which converts the DisplayPort signal to an HDMI signal.

HDMI to DisplayPort

.

The HDMI standard does not have a conversion mode such as DP++ and alt mode, but can only provide a digital video signal with the TMDS encoding. Conversion modes such as Alt mode and DP++ work only in the outgoing direction and not for an incoming signal. Thus, there is no way to connect an HDMI signal directly to a DisplayPort.

To still be able to connect a DisplayPort monitor to an HDMI output, you need an active HDMI to DisplayPort converter. These converters have a built-in chip that needs to be powered. Therefore, these converters often have an extra cable with a standard USB plug that provides power to the chip. You can plug this USB plug into a free USB port on your laptop.

When ordering an HDMI to DisplayPort converter, pay attention to the correct resolution, refresh rate, HDCP version and other desired options.

HDMI and VGA

VGA is the most commonly used analog video interface from the computer world, there are many monitors and beamers around that still perform just fine but only have a VGA connector.

HDMI to VGA

Do you have old equipment with only a VGA connection? These devices can be easily connected to a laptop, computer, Apple TV and media player with an HDMI output using an HDMI to VGA adapter.

Because HDMI is a digital signal and VGA is an analog signal, an HDMI to VGA adapter is always an active adapter with a built-in chip. In many adapters, this chip is powered via the HDMI plug.

A VGA connection does not support audio. You therefore need a separate cable for the transmission of your audio signal. Some HDMI to VGA adapters have a 3.5mm audio jack but this jack only supports stereo sound.

To get surround sound, you can connect the HDMI source signal to an audio receiver or audio extractor and the HDMI output of the receiver or extractor to the HDMI input of the HDMI to VGA converter.

VGA to HDMI

If you have old but still working equipment with a VGA output and want to connect it to a screen or beamer that only has an HDMI input, you will need a VGA to HDMI converter.

This active converter converts the analog VGA video signal into a digital HDMI video signal. This converter contains active electronics, therefore these convectors are equipped with an external power connector or USB plug that provides the required power supply.

The VGA standard does not support audio transmission, which is why a VGA to HDMI converter is often equipped with a 3.5mm audio jack, which can provide the HDMI signal with a mono or stereo audio signal.

HDMI to and from DVI

DVI is the abbreviation for Digital Visual Interface. DVI has long been popular because it supports the older analog VGA in addition to a digital video signal, making it possible to connect a VGA monitor to a DVI output with a simple adapter cable.

An analog DVI connector is referred to as DVI-A. A digital DVI connection is referred to as DVI-D. A connection that supports both the digital and analog DVI signal is referred to as DVI-I where the I is an abbreviation of Integrated.

The DVI-D connector is the predecessor of the HDMI connector and uses the same signal coding. DVI is no longer being further developed, but the HDMI and DVI standards still maintain an overlapping set of resolutions and refresh rates. This makes it easy to connect a DVI-D input or output to an HDMI output or input with a passive cable. No conversion is required; the connected devices will recognize each other and automatically choose the format that gives the best picture result.

DVI-D does not support audio by default. The audio signal will have to be transferred via a separate cable.

For the transfer of stereo audio, we offer passive DVI-D to HDMI cables that have a 3.5 mm stereo audio plug on both sides. You can plug these plugs at both ends into an analog stereo audio jack. You then no longer need a separate 3.5 mm audio cable.

HDMI converters to other video connections

.

We also offer converters for less popular video standards. We give a brief list below. Use the filter in the right menu or the search field to quickly find the converter you need:

  • HDMI to and from scart;
  • HDMI to and from composite video;
  • HDMI from and to SDI video.

Maximum HDMI cable length

.

The HDMI standard does not define a maximum cable length. The maximum distance that can be bridged depends on the HDMI version used and the quality of the connected equipment.

The higher the HDMI version, the higher the required bandwidth, the higher the demands on a cable. The distance over which a cable can transmit the signal without problems is smaller with a higher HDMI version.

In practice, the following maximum cable lengths are used for the various versions.

. .
HDMI versionpractical maximum distance
1.4 20 meters
2.0 15 meters
2.0a 10 meters
2.1 5 meters

These are the practical maximum distances that can be covered with a passive cable. But this is no guarantee that you can actually reach this distance with your equipment. If you have high-quality equipment, you may be able to cover a slightly greater distance.

HDMI extension cable

.

If your HDMI cable is too short, you can use an HDMI extension cable to extend it. Please note the HDMI version and the practical maximum distance that can be bridged with the HDMI version used. Note that the practical maximum length is the length of the original cable, plus the length of the HDMI extension cable.

HDMI cable extender

.

For bridging long distances, you can use an active HDMI cable extender. With us you can find two types of HDMI cable extenders:

  • HDMI extender via UTP data cable;
  • wireless HDMI extender;

.

Active HDMI extender with UTP data cable

.

This type of HDMI extender allows you to extend the distance between HDMI source and display equipment up to approximately 120 meters.

The extender consists of a transmitting unit and a receiving unit. The transmitting unit is connected to the HDMI source with a standard HDMI cable. The transmitting unit is connected to the receiving unit with a standard UTP cable of up to 120 meters. Then the receiving unit is connected to a screen or projector with a standard HDMI cable.

It is possible to connect additional receiving units to a transmitting unit so that the same image can be made visible in multiple locations. Besides a complete set of transmitter and receiver, you can also order separate reception units from us.

A standard UTP switch can be used to split the signal. This way a maximum of 253 receiver units can be connected to the same transmitter unit.

This system is an ideal and economical system for hotels and convention centers to hang information screens at various locations in your hotel or center.

Wireless active HDMI extender

.

In a number of places, it is difficult to lay down an HDMI cable. Consider a stage, a large home theater or a bedroom.

In all of these situations, a wireless HDMI extender is the ideal choice. The maximum distance you can cover with a wireless HDMI extender is about 30 meters.

You connect the wireless transmitter to your display equipment in one room and then connect the receiver to your flat screen or projector in the other room.

If you want to use the HDMI extender at home for watching TV or movies, choose a model with a built-in IR distance extender. This feature transports your remote control's IR signal from the room you are watching to the room where your equipment is located. This way, you can continue to use your IR remote control in the room where the screen is set up.

HDMI switches and HDMI splitters

.

If you want to connect multiple devices but do not have enough HDMI connections, this problem is easily solved with an HDMI splitter or HDMI switch.

HDMI switch

.

Are there not enough HDMI inputs on a device to connect all your devices? An HDMI switch, also called an HDMI switch, allows you to expand the number of inputs on a device. An HDMI switch is also useful for connecting to the input of an HDMI monitor. This way, you can easily switch back and forth between different sources without having to swap HDMI connectors.

When using an HDMI switch, the switch itself always takes up one input. Therefore, the number of additional connectors a switch provides is the number of connectors on the switch minus one.

When ordering an HDMI switch, pay close attention to the minimum HDMI version you need for your equipment.

HDMI splitter

.

Does a device not have enough HDMI outputs to connect multiple screens? An HDMI splitter allows you to easily connect multiple screens to one HDMI output. When ordering an HDMI switch, pay close attention to the minimum HDMI version you need for your screens.
