HDMI V1.4 - One Global Standard - Simplicity....Reliability.....PerformanceThe HDMI standard just got a lot more powerful! with new capabilities designed to push the boundaries of the HD experience - both in the home and on the go!HDMI provides an interface between any A/V source, such as: Set-top box, DVD player, A/V receiver & A/V monitor such as a Digital TV (DTV). HDMI dramatically simplifies cabling and helps provide consumers with the highest-quality home theatre experience delivering crystal clear, all digital A/V via a single cable. There is no loss of sound or picture quality from analogue to digital conversions. Whatever is input is output to the same quality. The difference is especially noticeable at higher resolutions such as 1080p (1080p is currently the standard resolution for HD Technology). The digital video picture will be sharper than component and eliminates the softness and ghosting found with component. Small, high contrast details such as text bring this difference out the most.
