Choosing the right HDMI cable for your 3D TV
25 Jan 2012 11:45:11
3D is a hugely exciting innovation in the world of cinema, and the technology is now breaking into the home entertainment market in a very big way. Consumers can now have the opportunity to watch 3D TV and films, play 3D games and explore the limitations of the technology in their very own homes, a prospect that would have seemed impossible just a few years ago.
If you have recently spent your hard-earned cash on a 3D-enabled TV, it is very important that you get all the essential accessories to allow you to get the best from your investment. You may not be aware of this, but your standard analogue connector cables cannot generally be used to connect up a 3D TV.
Even your HDMI cables may not be up to the job, unless you have one specific version. The only version that currently offers support for 3D content is the HDMI 1.4 cable, the latest available. This version also offers an Ethernet channel, a number of connector types for portable devices, and support for super-high resolutions. This is the cable you need to choose if you have recently bought a 3D TV and are ready to install it.
