Technically Speaking


High-DefinitionMultimedia Interface (HDMI) is the first digital interface to combine uncompressedhigh-definitionvideo, multichannel audio, and intelligent format and command data in a single cable.

The HDMI standard was introduced in December 2002, and HDMI 1.2 was released in August 2005. HDMI is supported by many leading consumer electronics

manufacturers as well as motion picture studios, and cable and satellite operators.

The HDMI connector is compact and is somewhat similar to a USB connector.

Use this serial interface to connect audio/video equipment, such as DVD players, a set-topbox, and A/V receivers with an audio and/or video monitor, such as a digital TV over a single cable. HDMI supports standard, enhanced, andhigh-definitionvideo. It has a bandwidth of up to 5 Gigabytes so it supports all HDTV standards and has bandwidth to spare for future applications.

HDMI is backward compatible with DVI equipment such as PCs, TVs, and other electronic devices using the DVI standard. The DVI device simply ignores the extra data.

HDMI offers significant benefits over older analog A/V connections. It provides superior video and audio clarity because there is no signal loss from digital-to-analogconversions. HDMI supports resolutions of 1920 x 1080p and multiple audio formats from standard stereo to multichannel surround sound. Plus it providestwo-waycommunication between the video source and the digital TV, enabling simple, remote,point-and-clickconfigurations.

HDMI is emerging as the connection standard for HDTV and the consumer electronics market. Because HDMI transmits all signals over one cable, it’s quite desirable

for home theater electronics and systems. It greatly simplifies the installation of home entertainment systems by eliminating the tangle of cables running behind the system. It’s also very cost-effectivebecause only one cable is needed.






Why Buy From Black Box?

Exceptional Value.

Exceptional Tech Support. Period.

Recognize any of these situations?

You wait more than 30 minutes to get through to a vendor’s tech support.

The so-called“tech” can’t help you or gives you the wrong answer.

You don’t have a purchase order number and the tech refuses to help you.

It’s 9 p.m. and you need help, but your vendor’s tech support line is closed.

According to a survey by Data Communications­ magazine, 90% of network managers surveyed say that getting the technical support they need is extremely important when choosing a vendor. But even though network managers pay anywhere from 10 to 20% of their overall purchase price for a basic service and support contract, the technical support and service they receive falls far short of theirexpectations—andcertainly isn’t worth what they paid.

At Black Box, we guarantee the best value and the best support. You can even consult our Technical Support Experts before you buy if you need help selecting just the right component for your application.
