Tripplite 6ft HDMI GoldDigitalVideo CblTripp Lite's 6ft HDMI - HDMI ( High Definition Multimedia Interface) Right Angle to Right Angle cable allows interconnection between digital display devices, such as DTV's ( Digital Television ), Plasma displays, LCDTV's, and projectors, to Digital source devices, such as Digital Set-Top boxes, DVD/DVD-R players, and AV receivers, where space constraints are an issue. HDMI assures that the best video signal is always sent from source (HDTV signal, DVD Player) tothe display (Projection Television or Plasma). Itdoes this by allowing uncompressed video and multi-channel audio data to be input to the display device through one single cable. The need for multiple analog connections for high-resolution audio and video are eliminated. Without a HDMI connection,one would need 3 video connections for high definition video and 6 audio connections for high-resolution audio. An HDMI connection allows input at high rates of speed, up to 5 Gbps. This leaves a lotof spare capacity for future applications; for example, a current uncompressed HD movie only" requires 2.2 Gbps for both video and multi-channel audio."
