The ​ ​HDMI ​ ​Cables ​ ​Dilemma: ​ ​To ​ ​Upgrade ​ ​or ​ ​Not to ​ ​Upgrade In the year 2002 renowned electronic manufacturers like Sony Philips Toshiba and Hitachi introduced High Definition Multimedia Interface HDMI ​. For those who are unaware it is an all-digital interface that carries video and audio signals and is backward compatible with video digital interface DVI. HDMI has always kept on evolving with various standards and protocols. This year a new cable connection standard known as HDMI 2.1 introduced. High Bandwidth ​ ​cables ​ ​of ​ ​48G ​ ​belong ​ ​to ​ ​this ​ ​category. New standards in HDMI always bring up a common concern. “If I buy a new TV or other device with this standard do I have to upgrade your current HDMI cables” The answer to this question is mostly “No”. And at least with HDMI 2.1 you don’t have to worry about ​ ​upgrading ​ ​your ​ ​cables ​ ​at ​ ​least ​ ​for ​ ​the ​ ​next ​ ​couple ​ ​of ​ ​years. However there are certain scenarios wherein you might have to consider buying 48G cables. Here’s an insight into these possibilities: ​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​​ ​1 ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​https://www.sfcable.com/

Running ​ ​4K ​ ​Resolutions: When it comes to running 4k resolutions new ​HDMI cables are a major need. Computers have the potential to send maximum resolution and frame rate in the current HDMI spec. Also they are an exclusive resource that can handle any resolutions in the upcoming ​ ​HDMI ​ ​2.1 ​ ​spec. If your computer is robust and you want to connect it with a UHD TV it is advisable to go for a Premium Certified cable as non-certified cables might not work. You can choose to buy 48G cables once they come out but they would be more useful for a television ​ ​that ​ ​can ​ ​handle ​ ​higher ​ ​4k ​ ​frame ​ ​rates. For ​ ​A ​ ​TV ​ ​That ​ ​Works ​ ​But ​ ​Doesn’t ​ ​Work While watching TV you might have experienced sudden flashes blinks or image distortions. This generally happens when your HDMI cable is old and overused due to over plugging and unplugging. The cheapest solution to this problem would be replacing it with another HDMI cable. But if you have a new TV that doesn’t show 4k resolution you can spend a little more and buy a ​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​​ ​2 ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​https://www.sfcable.com/

premium certified HDMI cable. Thereafter such problems might stop ​ ​occurring. For a New 4K streamer a console with HDR or UHD BD player UHD BD players superior quality media streamers and consoles like PS4 Pro and Xbox One S can give an output of 4K HDR. Check the length of your HDMI Cables when you connect them with the above ​ ​mentioned ​ ​devices. If the cables are a few feet long it shouldn’t be a problem. But if they are longer than that they might not be able to handle 4K HDR data. In case your TV is not able to display HDR even if its source and content is HDR there might be something wrong with your HDMI ​ ​cables. The ​high-speed HDMI cables are specially created to take care of 4k resolutions. But that in no way means that they can also handle higher data versions like or higher frame rates. It is difficult to send high resolutions to remote place. Which means if you have a ​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​​ ​3 ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​https://www.sfcable.com/
