What is HDMI?
HDMI stands for high definition multimedia interface. It's a medium-sized 19-pin connection that's becoming the new standard for most audio visual products. For TV cable, DVD leads and game playing, it has very quickly taken over the function of the Europe-wide Scart socket by carrying sound and pictures simultaneously. Unlike scart cables, HDMI uses digital signals throughout. It can also replace separate digital audio connections such as optical or coaxial leads. In theory, this makes your AV system simpler to link together and reduces the amount of wires cluttering up the space. It has also replaced VGA cables for PC monitors.
