The Best Information on Hdmi and Dvi Cables

By: Grant Foster

With the advancement of so many electronical devices in the last decade, the need for proper cables has arose. There are countless cables out on the open market today designed for different features and different settings to enhance someone?s electronical experience. A couple of high demand cables include the HDMI cable and the DVI cable. These two cables are pretty similar but have a few key differences.

First lets talk about the DVI cable which stands for digital visual interface. It was released in 1999 primarily for carrying uncompressed digital video data to a display. Back then it was pretty much used for computer monitors but now they are highly used for television sets. This part may get a bit confusing because there are three main connection types for DVI. They include the DVI-D which is digital only, the DVI-A which is analog only, and the DVI-I which is both digital and analog. So before selecting the best DVI cable for you, make sure you know which one you are getting.

The other cable I want to talk about is the HDMI which stands for high definition multimedia interface. This cable was introduced in 2002 and is an all digital?video interface capable of transmitting uncompressed streams of data. It is very similar to the DVI except the HDMI has the ability to also carry audio and video signals. The two cables do basically the same things, but the HDMI is a little better because it is a bit newer and can do a couple more features than the DVI cable.

Whatever cable you choose, make sure you get one that is compatible with whatever you are trying to connect it with. There are a number of cables that do different things and can affect your electronic device in different ways, so do as much research as possible before making your purchase.
