Just us with a new TV at home and in establishing appropriate connections to other peripherals such as a home theater or a musical team we realize we do not have at hand an HDMI cable (High-Digital Multimedia Interface), so we have to buy one.
We go to the store or surf the Internet in search of us with one and well advised by the buyer or by the opinions of other users think that all are equal and there is no difference … big mistake. Still, do not rush because although it may seem, all cables are not equal and here we are going to help differentiate them.
HDMI stands for “high definition multimedia interface” and through this connection to transmit digital audio and video can exchange data between various devices such as televisions, media players, tablets, Smartphone or PCs.
A single cable that will allow us to send video and audio signals of multiple high data transfer rates (we saw 4K wires) so that playback HD content without interference is allowed.
The first thing to do is differentiate based on the version you have each wire (is set in the box) and which is related to the performance or requirements of the equipment that will connect and the needs of the content that will transmit so that not all versions allow for example 4K or use the same number of audio channels.

Once we have seen the different varieties if you stick to the specifications must refer to 5 different HDMI connectors that can be found on the market. This is the “A”, “B”, “C”, “D” and “E” types although only the first four are used regularly.
These are the different types of HDMI cables that can be found in the market and making us one must study what is the use we will give, the specifications will define and compatibility of connections, taking into account that the latest versions of HDMI are backward and that we use the most modern for devices that require the older ones.
