with Ethernet is the Future of Internet.
That's right; the new HDMI with Ethernet compliant capabilities is already here! Each generation of HDMI cables is getting closer to the desired ideal. After all, HDMI stands for High-Definition Multimedia Interface. Initially developed by the biggest names in the electronic industry, the cables of this type could carry HD digital video and audio signal. Today, the possibilities HDMI 1.4 offers take a step directly into the future. Multimedia suggests interaction and this is where the new generation of HDMI with Ethernet is headed. Keep in mind that this is a relatively new technology and not all devices, be that TV sets, stereos, Blu-rays, and even DVD players, are yet compliant with the standard. However fancy and useful HDMI with Ethernet sounds, if its full functionality is not supported by the device you plan to use it on, then acquiring a cable of this type is somewhat pointless. Naturally, all other functions of the cable will work just fine, because it is completely backwards compliant. Audio and video transmissions will go as smoothly as intended.
HDMI are able to reproduce the highest resolution possible and to transmit lossless sound which will blow your mind. It is no secret that HDMI cables are the ultimate solution for Blu-ray Discs which are designed to work to perfection exactly with HDMI. These cables are the best way to enjoy the full capacity of this multimedia heaven called Blu-ray. But what exactly HDMI with Ethernet is good for? In a nutshell, the HDMI standard was developed with the idea that one cable can connect all systems. Before its invention, component cables were used widely for the transmission of analog video signal. Component cables provide extremely high quality as well, but they can carry out only image and no sound. Depending on the sound system used by the TV set, many times a separate cable is needed to establish connection to each channel. Consider having a standard 5.1 setup and not a 7.1. Chances are that you will need to connect each speaker separately to the TV set which means five cables only for the sound system. Throw in the equation a Blu-ray player which needs to be connected to the speakers as well. This adds far more wires. Should you have a DVD player, the room would soon resemble the stage of a rock fest than anything else with cables thrown everywhere.
In case a HDMI cable is used to connect the stereo, you will be able to use a single cable per connection. In this above example it would mean three cables in total. Not fifteen. Now, some people might consider optical cable instead, which would provide excellent sound quality without turning the living room into a jungle of wires. Given that all devices support optical cable, it could be a clean and nice solution; a good add-on to the component cable. It still means greater number cables when compared to HDMI. More importantly, HD-DVDs, TrueHD, and Blu-rays would produce much lousier sound with anything but HDMI. In case you have any of these devices, HDMI is the best way to go. All these advantages are innate to HDMI 1.3. However, HDMI with Ethernet provides even more possibilities, direct streaming of Netflix on big plasma screen with excellent surround sound, for instance. As long as one of your devices is compatible with HDMI 1.4 you will be good to go. Connect the rest to it and they would be able to access the global network. That's right; one device utilizing the Ethernet connection can distribute the signal to the rest, as long as it has routing capabilities. This is an extremely important upgrade on several levels.
Most of the modern TV sets require software upgrades every now and then. HDMI with Ethernet is a secure gateway for all data packages needed. It can transmit up to 100 Mb/sec and works flawlessly with all Internet protocols. Without it, a separate Ethernet cable would be needed. It doesn't take much to realize that HDMI with Ethernet is the way to go. Not only version 1.4 supports Internet connection, but it is able to display resolutions that are not invented yet. 4096x2160 is the highest definition which is being developed at present. Despite the fact that it is not ready yet for mass production, HDMI 1.4 can process the signal with ease, providing picture that only the most modernized movie theaters boast. Needless to say, the latest generation of HDMI cables supports 3D formats with ease, be it in movies or in games. Using dual stream, it can create images with pixel density of 1080p. This possibility synergizes nicely with another upgraded feature of the cable – it has enhanced support for color spaces. A function that can be fully appreciated with photographies; the colors there become more vivid than the original. Since the present becomes more and more mobile, the latest High-Definition Interface Multimedia cables have a small jack to connect to mobile devices as well. In other words, file sharing and displaying the contents of a tablet or a phone on the large TV screen becomes a child's play. Do you fancy the latest Android game? Play it on your high-def screen with the speakers booming with the real sound of the game.
Thanks to HDMI with Ethernet, you will be able to access the global network and load the game on your mobile device. Afterward, this cable would enable you to enjoy a gaming experience of a brand new dimension. The same stands true for PlayStation 3 which excels in sound and graphics when working with HDMI. Furthermore, when you connect a PS 3 to the Internet through HDMI with Ethernet, you'd have the best possible sound and picture plus the possibility to play online with friends. All these perks come with a single cable. There can be little doubt on the matter: HDMI with Ethernet will become increasingly popular in the years to come. These cables incorporate so many functions and execute them with such perfection that they are bound to become the most widely used means for interaction between devices.
