If you're in the market for plasma, projector, DVD player/Blu-ray or just about any new piece of audio visual equipment, it will no doubt feature HDMI.
HDMI has the potential to deliver uncompressed high definition pictures and digital sound through a single cable. HDMI has many advantages, the most obvious being no need for masses of bulky cables. Aside from practical and aesthetic considerations, HDMI has the ability to transfer a signal from source to display completely in the digital domain. This makes HDMI ideal for big screen images, by transmitting high definition pictures without digital to analogue conversions. This means losses and errors in the signal are minimised.
To cut a rather long story short, HDMI delivers the folowing tangible benefits:
Better pictures: HDMI cuts out the need for all those DA & AD conversions, Digital to Digital = a better picture with the added benifit of transmitting high resolution images.
Future proofing: HDMI transmits high definition audio and video. High Def is the future, it's hear and it's fantastic!
Less Clutter: Typically, HDMI cables are thinner than 'mains flex' cables and have smaller terminations. They carry both picture and sound, reducing that quagmire of scarts, component leads & more, down to a single cable.
Standardisation: HDMI looks set to be used on all major consumer electronics devices in the future. This means cross-compatibility and easy, plug and play connectivity.
Communication: The way devices can communicate along the HDMI lead looks set to introduce new functionality. An example of this is exact resolution matching for fixed panel devices such as home cinema projectors.
