What does HDMI stand for?

HDMI stands for High Definition Multimedia Interface. It is a specification that allows video and audio signals to be transmitted from a source device to a compatible monitor or television. Since its original design in 2002, HDMI cables have become increasingly popular and have in many places replaced analog video standards. Most modern televisions now incorporate HDMI connectivity.

Are all HDMI cables the same?

While all HDMI cables share similar functions, there are a few distinct differences between various HDMI types that you should be aware of before you buy a HDMI cable.

Most notably, there are differences in HDMI standards. The different HDMI cable standards include: 1.4, 1.4b, 2.0, 2.0b and 2.1.

Despite sharing different names, the actual physical cable does not change between various HDMI cable standards. Instead, standards refer to the specifications that must be followed in the cable’s manufacturing. For everyday usage, it is unlikely that the standard will impact your audio and video quality in a noticeable way. Since 2009, all HDMI cables support 4K resolution. 

Speed is also another important differentiating factor between HDMI cables. The speed depends on the cable’s bandwidth, and there are 4 different categories of HDMI cabling speeds:

Standard: 4.9 Gbps/ 1080p

High-Speed: 10.2 Gbps/ 4K video at 24 frames per second

Premium High-Speed: 18 Gbps/ 4K video at 60 frames per second

Ultra-High Speed: 48 Gbps/ 4K video at 120Hz

Premium high-speed and ultra-high speed are the most common HDMI cables on the market. Standard HDMI cables are becoming less popular and are considered somewhat obsolete.

What is HDMI ARC?

HDMI ARC (Audio Return Channel) allows data to be transmitted in 2 directions. Essentially, this means that it can connect devices to external sound systems and speakers, enabling a higher quality of audio. HDMI ARC sends the video to the TV but then reverses the transmission of the audio back through the cable and then onto a speaker system. HDMI ARC is a useful system for DVDs, Blu-Ray players, gaming consoles and in-built TV apps as it provides enhanced audio through a single cable.

What is HDMI CEC

CEC stands for Consumer Electronics Control. This essentially allows a user to connect all compatible devices (TV sets, Blu-Ray players, gaming consoles, TV receivers, laptops, sound systems) via HDMI and then control them interchangeably. You can read more about the differences between CEC and ARC.

Is Displayport better than HDMI?

Displayport is similar to HDMI cables, but intended mostly for PCs. 

Displayport allows for HD video (and sometimes audio too) to be transferred from a device to a monitor. Similarly with HDMI cables, there are different standards for Displayport so it is difficult to say absolutely that HDMI cables are better than Displayports, as the answer ultimately depends on the standard of the cabling. 

HDMI cables all provide audio and video transmission, however this is not always the case with Displayport cables. HDMI cables are more ubiquitous and are generally considered to be more useful for television setups. If you are purchasing a cable for your television or home theatre setup, it is most likely that your system is compatible with HDMI but there is a high likelihood that it will not function with a Displayport cable.
