High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) is the first
industry-supported, UNCOMPRESSED audio/video interface. This cable
connects HDMI devices for DVD, satellite boxes, LCD, projectors,
plasma and HDTVs. HDMI provides an interface between any HDMI-enabled
audio/video source, such as a set-top box, DVD player, and A/V
receiver and an audio and/or video monitor or projector.
HDMI supports standard, enhanced, or high-definition video, plus
multi-channel digital audio on a single cable. It transmits all ATSC
HDTV standards and supports 8-channel digital audio, with bandwidth
to spare to accommodate future enhancements and requirements.
