Additional Information About HDMI 1.4 Cables
The HDMI Ethernet Channel
1.4 introduces a new HDMI Ethernet channel. This new feature further delivers on HDMI promise to reduce cable clutter between your devices. As more and more devices become 'connected' devices, taking advantage of features like streaming video over YouTube and NetFlix, rather than buying a new router and stringing Ethernet cables to each of these devices, your TV can act as a type of router connecting to the internet through a single connection and distributing connectivity to each of your other devices through the same HDMI cable that's transmitting video and audio content.
Audio Return Channel
The new Audio Return Channel allows the HDMI connection between a TV and A/V receiver to transmit audio two ways, both upstream and downstream. This eliminates the need for a separate audio cable and ensures you maintain the high digital audio quality of HDMI. Your experience is further enhanced by the LipSync functionality of HDMI which matches the audio and video without delays.
Another new pending revolution in the A/V world is the new 3D technologies being promised. Movies and games of the future promise to bring you to a whole new level.
