If you are considering buying HDMI 1.4 cables, the latest version available, you will need to know a little about the new features and functions that these advanced cables offer.
One term you might come across whilst researching HDMI 1.4 cables is 4K. This refers to displays with very high resolutions, such as those that are around four times the resolution of a standard 1080p device.
HDMI 1.4 cables offer support for a number of 4K formats, including:
• 3840 pixels wide by 2160 pixels high
• 4096 pixels wide by 2160 pixels wide
What this means for you is that if you have an advanced, high resolution TV or projector display, your HDMI 1.4 cable will be able to support the technology fully, so that you can get the best out of all your advanced devices. These high resolution displays are often very expensive, so you need to make sure your money is well spent by getting a compatible HDMI cable.
To get started, start browsing online for a high speed HDMI 1.4 cable. You may even want to look for HDMI 1.4 cables which also have an Ethernet channel, for advanced functionality.
