HDMI - What is that?

What is HDMI?

HDMI is the digital substitute to scart connection.

HDMI or (High Definition Multimedia Interface) will transfer picture & sound digital, and therefore there will be no quality loss when playing from DVD etc.
HDMI are the correct choice when using e.g. Blu-ray players, to get 1080p (full HD) to a flat screen.

When using products with HDMI interface, they are equipped with a new form of copy control. It is called HDCP (High bandwidth content protection). You must be sure that all products you use has HDCP, otherwise you can risk that no picture will be displayed.

The standard used now are HDMI 1.0 which allows resolutions up to 1080p (full HD) but the newest standard are HDMI 1.3 which can display resolutions up to 2560x1600 with a single cable. (normal full HD are 1920x1080).

In the future there are spoken about dual connection with HDMI to get resolution up to 3200x2048.

In the newer versions of HDMI you can control e.g. HDD recorders from the TV through the HDMI cable. e.g. you want to install channels on the HDD recorder that are similar to the placement of the TV.
This standard are called CEC (consumer electronics control).
