A Review Of The Impact Of HDMI LCD

High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) is predicted to be the next generation electronic gadget. HDMI enables a device to attain optimum video and audio capabilities. Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) is a technological innovation that finds applications in image display mediums. Putting these two innovations together, HDMI LCD, produces one of the best image quality and audio performance of any electronic device. It is because of consumer satisfaction in using HDMI LCD that more electronics manufacturers shifted to this audio-video solution.

What is HDMI?

HDMI pertains to audio visual cabling, a digital connector that aims to produce high definition video and perfect digital audio – all in just one single cable or adapter. Although it had been found to be a practical electronics solution in 2003, it is only in the last couple of years that it found its way to the modern electronic scene. The widespread global support for this technology has been realized years after it was introduced. This is typical because in many cases, an innovation is not readily accepted by the consuming public. Only after the benefits outweigh the costs do new found gadgets get a fair share of  the consumer market. Today, the HDMI connector is very popular, widely accepted and immensely used.

Prior to HDMI, analog cables were used and the composite or S-video was used to transfer image signals to the picture display. When an analog cable is connected to a digital device such as the LCD, the signals are converted to analog to travel through the cable.

The HDMI has been proven to deliver better quality of vision and sound. The image is very distinct, sharp and smooth. The sound  is crisp and highly audible. Using HDMI cables will free your working area from lots of messy cables.


The liquid crystal display (LCD) is a thin, flat electronic visual display. It uses light modulating properties of liquid crystals. The LC does not emit light so it sources its passive light from the sunlight or room lighting. The applications of the LCD are on computer monitors, television, signage and instrument panels. The LCD had replaced the CRT and the LCD has more sizes of screen display.

Today, a consumer who buys a high definition LCD television will want a unit that has HDMI connectivity. This LCD is a replacement of the Digital Visual Interface (DVI). The benefit from the HDMI LCD is great, resulting to a very high quality resolution and super crisp audio. When this is applied to computer monitors, the visual display makes a big difference from one that is not HDMI capable. This is the major benefit derived from the use of HDMI LCD – the kind of display that you are able to enjoy.

Another benefit although a minor one is a work place that is very orderly and devoid of messy cobwebs of cables.

The HDMI in the LCD is available in various types – HDMI 1.1, HDMI 1,2, HDMI 1.2a and HDMI 1.3. HDMI 1.1 supports audio signals only, the HDMI 1.2 was designed to be compatible with personal computers. HDMI 1.2a is equipped with Consumer Electronic Control and the HDMI 1.3 offers high speed connections.

The HDMI LCD has received good reviews and feedbacks. The satisfaction rate of consumers who tried using HDMI capable LCD monitors and televisions is very high. This indeed is the next generation electronic gadget.
