The AmazonBasics High-Speed HDMI Cable with Ethernet offers a one-cable solution to many of your home entertainment needs. This versatile cable provides high-definition quality for films, TV and games, along with all the benefits of home entertainment networking. You can use this 6.5-foot (2 m) cable to connect your HDTV to your cable box, satellite dish, Blu-ray Disc player and other devices to experience quality audio and video (up to 1080p) from your home theatre. Additionally, the cable allows you to share an Internet connection amongst multiple devices without the need for a separate Ethernet cable for each device (see illustration). Check your device manuals to make sure you choose the right connectors.
High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) has become the standard for high-definition digital devices. It combines both audio and video into one convenient cable, so you can easily connect your HDTV to your A/V receiver, Blu-ray Disc player, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, satellite dish, and other high-definition devices. The AmazonBasics High-Speed HDMI Cable with Ethernet lets you take advantage of up to 1080p resolution and increased color depth on your HDTV. It also supports 3D television functionality. Like the illustration here that eliminates the need for separate Ethernet cables, this cable also eliminates the need for an Audio Return cable. The Audio Return is supported – within the same cable.
As the graphic illustrates, in the past, getting Ethernet to your numerous internet-capable devices required either a wireless signal, which can decrease performance, or an additional dedicated cable from each unit to a connected Internet source. Ethernet-ready HDMI cables allow you to combine HD video and digital audio in one cable, with the added benefit of also being able to carry all of your favorite Internet content.
This cable is backwards compatible with all previous HDMI standards, so you'll be able to use this cable with all your HDMI devices. When you connect two devices with different HDMI standards, they will automatically find the best available connection.
This HDMI cable features shielding and a durable, black PVC outer layer. The shielding provides protection against outside interference and helps maintain the integrity and purity of the digital signal. The cable also features gold-plated connectors that resist corrosion whilst offering optimal signal transfer with lower distortion at the point of contact. The result of this dedication to the digital signal is sound and picture quality that is more true to the original.
