3D cinema will not take long to land in a fulminating way, and with this cable we will be able to send data and videos of this new technology.
How do I know if an HDMI cable is of quality?
To evaluate the quality of an HDMI cable you have to take into account components and the type of manufacture.
To determine the quality of the cable, we must consider the following points:
- The driver must be multi-stranded. They should not be conductors with a single central wire.
- The conductor should be copper, not copper or other alloys of lower cost.
- The number of conductors has to be 19 since these are the stipulated pins conceived in the norm and not of 15 threads which limits the use of future applications.
- The conductors must be braided and equipped with shielding mesh. Like any type of data cable. Unshielded it would not comply with the EC directive.
- The cover:
- The cover must comply with the directive directive RoHs, so that it does not contain contaminating elements.
- The cover should not have excessive wrinkles and creases.
