The Cisco High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) cable provides excellent uncompressed digital video and audio in a simple, user-friendly connector. HDMI is the standard digital audio and video interface for high-definition audio-visual (A/V) applications.
HDMI, combined with High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP), provides a secure connection to an HDTV that supports the HDMI interface. The Cisco HDMI cable is certified and is fully backward compatible with the Digital Visual Interface (DVI) v1.0 video interfaces present on earlier versions of HDTVs.
With an HDMI cable, subscribers eliminate the need for both an audio and a video cable. HDMI combines high-definition video and multi-channel audio in a single, all-digital interface, with bandwidth of up to 10 Gigabits-per-second. HDMI transmits all ATSC HDTV standards and supports 8-channel digital audio with bandwidth available to accommodate future enhancements and requirements.
The Cisco HDMI cable provides an interface between any HDMI-enabled A/V source, such as a Cisco set-top, Blu-ray DVD player, or personal computer, and any digital video display device such as a monitor, LCD panel, plasma display, or projector.
The Cisco HDMI cable is HDMI licensed and has successfully passed Authorized Testing Center (ATC) compliance testing in accordance with the HDMI Compliance Test Specification, (category 2 High Speed HDMI Cable) at an HDMI ATC
