HDMI to DVI Adapter Cable connects your DVI-equipped computer, or any other device with DVI Cables connection, to your home theater or any other device that utilizes an HDMI connection. You can also use it to connect source devices with an HDMI connection, like Blu-Ray, PlayStation 3, or Xbox 360, to a DVI-equipped monitor or television set. This cable supports high-bandwidth, uncompressed video, and provides your system with high-definition video quality.
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is the only industry-standard interface for transmitting uncompressed digital data. HDMI cables are intended for use with a wide range of everyday electronic components, such as computers and a home theater system’s screen. HDMI provides video, especially at high resolutions, and renders small, high-contrast details, such as text, in high quality. DVI (Digital Visual Interface) is a video-interface standard that provides quality transmissions on digital display devices such as flat-panel LCD computer displays and digital projectors. Audio will need to be transmitted through a separate audio cable(s) or through a fiber-optic (Toslink) cable as the DVI connector of this cable is not fitted for audio capability.
