According to the HDMI Forum…
“HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is a data transfer standard that allows high-resolution, all-digital data (both audio and video) to be transported via a single cable. This dramatically simplifies cabling and helps provide consumers with the highest-quality HD experience.
It transmits all ATSC HDTV standards and supports 8-channel, 192kHz, uncompressed digital audio and all currently-available compressed formats, with bandwidth to spare to accommodate future enhancements and requirements.
It is the most popular standard for connecting high-definition (HD) equipment, from HDTVs and personal computers to cameras, camcorders, tablets, Blu-ray players, gaming consoles, smart phones, and just about any other device capable of sending or receiving an HD signal.”
