Different HDMI CablesHDMI Cables, Video Cables

Technological innovations have enabled people to view things in ways that couldn’t have been imagined a century ago. Thanks to development of HDMI Cables and Video Cables, people can know filter videos and watch it anywhere and at any time. Internet streaming has enabled people to enjoy high quality videos right on their television sets, eliminating the need to watch them on small laptop. This is a buying guide about different types of HDMI and Video Cables that are available in market and how one can purchase a product depending upon their requirements.

Video Cables

It must be noted that HDMI is also a video cable. But that doesn’t mean that this is the only variety of video cables available in the market. Some of the popular video cables that can be purchased are:

a. Composite Cables

These are the cables that are compatible with almost all kinds of Audio Video Equipment. So, those who have older generation of products or need something that is compatible with all shall opt for these cables. They come in yellow, red and white color of which red carries the picture. The only problem with these cables is that they cannot carry a high definition signal.

b. S-Video

Serving as an upgrade to the yellow cables, these cables are used for improved picture quality and are generally cheaper than the modern counterparts. It contains two separate signals for brightness and color. But, S-Video still doesn’t provide high definition signals like the DVI or HDMI.

c. Component

These are one of the most affordable and practically useful cables. Available widely, they provide high definition video and audio signals and can be easily used for a digital or an HD TV. Most of the television sets that are available in the market are compatible with component video cables.

d. DVI

The Digital Video Interface or the DVI can provide digital signals. It differs from its predecessors because they could only carry the analog signals. These cables can be used for digital converter boxes as well as satellite boxes and blue ray DVD players. DVI cables can also be used for projectors.

HDMI Cables

Different types of HDMI Cables are available in the market. Some of them may provide internet services with or without Ethernet. The popular kinds of HDMI Cables include:

a. Standard Speed CablesHDMI Cable

Standard Speed Cables can provide 1080i. These cables may or may not come with Ethernet support. These are fine for most of your HDMI needs, but some products – especially video-games and Blu-rays – have different needs regarding data transmission and might require a high speed HDMI cable; which you might just want to buy in the first place anyway. Read below to see why.

b. High Speed

High Speed can go beyond the regular “speeds” of standard Speed Cables. It is recommended that customers should by buy High Speed HDMI with or without Ethernet as the price difference between high and standard speed cable is almost negligible. Nowadays, few products have internet-over-HDMI compatibility, so a no-Ethernet high speed cable is a pretty safe acquisition. If you want to make sure you are “ready for the future”, however, buying an Ethernet-enabled cable is a perfectly sound choice as well, as the price difference between them isn’t really striking.

Size of the cable

It is erroneously believed that over long distances, picture quality may suffer for HDMI cables. But this is a mere belief. It is true that after a point picture might not be seen anymore, but mostly, the size doesn’t affect picture quality. Hence, buy a cable that is long enough for different purposes and don’t worry about picture quality. Mostly, the price difference between 6 feet and the 10 feet HDMI isn’t a deal breaker. Now, armed with this knowledge and Shopbot’s price comparison tools, you are ready to look for the HDMI and Video cables you need for your household electronics. Happy shopping!
