HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is an industry-supported, uncompressed, all-digital audio/video interface. By delivering crystal-clear, all-digital audio and video via a single cable, HDMI simplifies cabling and helps provide consumers with the high-quality home theater experience.
Dueltek HDMI cables provide an interface between any audio/video source, such as a digital set-top box, DVD player, X-Box, Playstation 3, or A/V receiver and an audio and/or video monitor, such as a digital television (DTV), over a single cable.
Dueltek HDMI cables support standard, enhanced, or high-definition video, plus multi-channel digital audio on a single cable. HDMI cables transmits all ATSC HDTV standards and supports 8-channel digital audio, with bandwidth to spare to accommodate future enhancements and requirements.
Type-A HDMI is backwards-compatible with the single-link Digital Video Interface (DVI) used on computer monitors and graphics cards. This means that a DVI source can drive an HDMI monitor, or vice versa, by means of a suitable adapter or cable, but the audio and remote control features of HDMI will be unavailable.
HDMI is a modern replacement for older analogue standards such as RF - coaxial cable, composite video, S-Video, SCART, component video and VGA, and the consumer electronics replacement for older digital standards such as DVI (DVI-D & DVI-I). In the computer world, HDMI is already found on many peripherals and a few newer video cards, with adoption rapidly increasing.
