HDMI is the new standard for digital video and digital audio transmission operating at 165 Mpixel/second. HDMI supports standard, enhanced and high definition video and DVI-D cables can be converted to HDMI using this adapter.
HDMI 1.2 and HDMI 1.3 both carry signals that are electrically compatible with those found in a DVI connector. This adapter make use of this fact and has a HDMI Type A connector at one end and a DVI-D connector at the other.
This adapter may be used to connect devices fitted with HDMI connectors (such as TV tuner cards & DVD players) with devices fitted with DVI-D connectors (such as TFT monitors and some of the LCD TVs) where a DVI-D cable is already in place.
Whilst two adaptors are shown in the illustration for clarity, these adapters are actually supplied in multiples of one.
