HDMI is short for High Definition Media Interface. It is a standard for plugs, cables, video and audio devices.


HDMI is a digital cable designed to offer very good quality audio and video over the same cable. It's worth noting that not all products do a perfect job and the standards have changed dramatically over the years.


HDMI and HDMI cables has a particularly tricky habit of causing all sorts of weird issues with equipment. For example, picture not coming through on a display caused by a cable adhering to an older standard, or a blu-ray player with old firmware. 


Some features released in newer standards:

  • 4k Video Support
  • Audio Return
  • 3D Video
  • Support for High Resolution Audio
