Have you ever wondered why some HDMI cables can be so cheap and others seem so much more expensive?
Does the price tag of a great quality HDMI cable really have a large impact in a theatre system? The short answer from us is “yes- it can”. While buying a single cable may seem a quick and easy solution, it is important to understand the technology of the cable you’re about to purchase and make sure this cable matches your Home Cinema.
Firstly, there are many different versions of HDMI cables which can support a range of visual and audio formats. Some of these HDMI cables include terms like 1.3, 1.4 or even 2.0. Not only are there different versions, but it is essential to be mindful of the cable’s internal quality, along with its outside shielding designed to avoid interference.
To top of it off, last year the world of cinema was introduced to another newer version of HDMI- HDMI 2.1
What’s HDMI 2.1? HDMI 2.1 can support upcoming resolutions including 8K and even 10K. Not only can HDMI 2.1 support these outstanding resolutions, but it’s capable of delivering a higher frame rate and supporting a higher bandwidth.
